Jackson was free on a $`10,000 bond on a felony charge alleging that he dragged a police officer while fleeing authorities in his car in January. He was waiting for his trial.

Jackson already pleaded guilty in 2019 to a misdemeanor assault charge for a fight with his now-ex-girlfriend. He received 18 months of probation for the incident.
