Free Agent QB Tarvaris Jackson Arrested For Allegedly Pulling Gun On His Wife, Telling Her “I’ll Kill You”

According to Chris Hush of WESH, free agent QB Tarvaris Jackson was arrested for allegedly pulling gun on his wife and is facing charges of aggrevated assualt with a deadline weapon.

Jackson has posted bond and is out of jail.

The arrest report says that Jackson was intoxicated and pointed a loaded gun at his wife, telling here: “I’ll kill you, bitch. I’ll kill you, bitch.

Hush adds that Jackson’s wife allegedly told him: “You better be accurate because you ain’t accurate on the field.” Jackson’s wife grabbed kitchen knife and a clothing iron for protection.

A witness in the house grabbed a hold of Jackson to stop him from shooting his wife, according to the report.

All the while, Jackson kids were asleep during incident.

Jackson, 33, is a former second-round pick of the Vikings back in 2006. He spent five years in Minnesota before signing on with the Seahawks in 2011. He’s spent the past five years in Seattle and is currently an unrestricted free agent.

Recent reports have said that the Seahawks haven’t ruled out re-signing Jackson. However, this incident is serious enough that he may have a hard time securing another opportunity in the NFL.

In 2015, Jackson appeared in four games for the Seahawks and threw for 37 yards while completing four of six attempts and no touchdowns.
