Tarvaris Jackson arrested after allegedly pointing gun at wife

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson is without a team for the 2016 season, although that may be the least of his worries in the near future.

Chris Hush of WESH in Orlando reports that Jackson was arrested for aggravated assault after pulling a gun on his wife. Hush shares a shot of the police report from the Osceola County Sheriffs Office from an officer who reported to the scene of a domestic disturbance.

Per the report, Jackson was intoxicated and loaded his gun during an argument with his wife before telling her “I’ll kill you, bitch.” Another adult who was at the house grabbed Jackson before things could escalate any further.

Jackson’s wife told police she feared for her life and grabbed an iron and knife at points for protection, but Jackson initially said nothing more than arguing occurred. He also told police that there was no gun in the house, but they found a handgun on the kitchen counter along with marijuana.

Jackson later told police he did grab a bag containing his gun and told his wife that he should shoot her. Per the report, Jackson’s wife replied that he “better be accurate because you ain’t accurate on the field.”

The Seahawks signed Trevone Boykin and Jake Heaps as backup options for Russell Wilson after Jackson filled the role for the last three years. They’ve said the door isn’t closed on a return to the team, although this incident and whatever happens next could certainly shut it.

  1. Boykin it is.
    Thanks for the memories t Jack, best of luck with your legal issues

  2. Now that his career is officially over, my favorite memory of TJ will be the time Chris Clemons choke-slammed him in the Philly/Minny playoff game, when TJ was trying to make a tackle on a pick-six. Good times, man.

  3. There were shots fired during this altercation; the verbal type.

    Per the report, Jackson’s wife replied that he “better be accurate because you ain’t accurate on the field.”

    If that isn’t an Ice Burn I don’t know what is.

  4. Jackson’s wife replied that he “better be accurate because you ain’t accurate on the field.”

    Ouch!

  5. Reading the police report paints Jackson in a very, very negative light. Not sure he gets signed after something like this, if he ever was at all.

  6. Best coin flipper in the history of the game that’s about all we’ll miss about him regarding the actual game of football.

  7. lambeaudungbarn is still pouting like a spurned lover over TJack leaving his vikings. He knows that was the best qb that sorry franchise had in quite some time, and definitely better than the one they have now.

  8. A crime involving guns and marijuana.

    The packers already had a guy busted for that. M

    They could sure use another.

  10. TJoke’s wife knows his QB skills better than Pete Caroll……not surprising.

  11. If he had to point a gun at her you fugure he had to use a lot of restraint not to pull the trigger. That one’s a keeper, ladies.

  12. Typical Seattle Seagulls character. No wonder they just had to draft and sign Frank Clark. Look for Seagulls fans to try to sweep this under the rug, just like they do with everything else that’s messed up about this team . . . or as they would call it, “dynasty.”

  13. With a comment like that from his wife i can see why TJack, a normally mellow and mild mannered man would say something like that. T Jack, im sorry you married a toxic women.

  14. T Jack married a Toxic Women, remember folks T jack is a gentle person with a caring heart, for him to react like that speaks volumes of the toxicity of that marriage.

    Last time I checked he’s not on the Seahawks roster. But why let facts get in the way?

  16. Per the report, Jackson’s wife replied that he “better be accurate because you ain’t accurate on the field.”

    This sentence had me wonder about another Vikings QB. Does anybody know the whereabouts of Samantha Ponder? Actually on second though, I would be more worried about the neighbors or family dog getting hit instead of Samantha running in stride. I’ve seen Christian in action.

  17. He’s a player that had many desirable physical traits. Good arm strength, nice mechanics and solid mobility. The problem was that he was always gun shy, he never stepped up in the pocket and pulled the trigger, he’d just stand there patting the ball. I guess old habits die hard.

  18. His wife’s reply was AWESOME!! BTW liberals want to know if it was an AR-15..

    Uhhhh…. psssst…. he isn’t a Seahawk… he’s a free agent.
    When he was a Seahawk he never had so much as a parking ticket and was considered a great teammate. Never lost an OT coin flip either. His superb play with 0:00 on the field will be missed.

    Let me guess… it’s the gun’s fault?
    —————————————
    Close but not quite.

    If the gun was fired it’s the gun’s fault.
    If the gun hurt or killed someone, it’s the gun’s fault.

    But since the gun wasn’t fired it has to be TJack’s fault.

  21. None of these guys have any reason to own a handgun — as we see it only leads to trouble for them.

  22. He’s completed about 60% of his passes and thrown more TDs than interceptions. She’s hard to please.

  23. Jackson was never a good QB. When Brad Childress bet the farm on him in Minnesota, we Viking fans quickly learned that Jackson just didn’t have the goods. (Neither did Childress, for that matter, but that’s another story.) Looks like his life has take a severe downturn. Hope he can get things together and straighten himself out.

  24. Ban him for life, you know, like they’ve done to Manziel. Oh wait, pulling a gun on your wife is normal, but partying in Las Vegas is not.

  25. Just another in a long list of ex-Vikings in trouble with the law. The only difference is, he is also in a long list of Qb saviours that the Viking’s drafted as their next franchise Qb. Not only drafted, but traded up just to nab him, as if any of the other 31 teams was making the mistake of thinking he was really going to pan out.

    BridgeH2O might be better behaved but is just as inept at losing his lone playoff appearance as T-Jack. Still all in all, I will miss T Jack’s jump passes, you just don’t see that very often in today’s NFL.

  26. There sure are a lot of stupid people in the world . When you losers make comments insulting Coach Carroll or the Seahawks organization the ONLY thing you’re doing is demonstrating your lack of knowledge and class . Coach Carroll is a man of high moral fiber and has never had a bad word to say about anybody. You can’t control all the people around you all the time. Save your little comments for your friends at school who also don’t know any better so you won’t look so crude to us big people.
