AL.com Former Alabama State star and NFL quarterback Tarvaris Jackson told his wife he “should shoot her” on Friday, to which she replied: “You better be accurate because you ain’t accurate on the field.” That’s according to the Osceola County (Fla.) Sheriff’s Office arrest report completed by Officer Jason Denning. Jackson was arrested and charged with aggravated assault in Kissimmee on Friday. He was taken to the Osceola County jail and released after posting a $2,500 bond. WESH-TV in Orlando first reported the arrest. Jackson’s wife said he was intoxicated, kicked in their bedroom door and became verbally abusive. She said she became afraid for her life and got a kitchen knife, according to the police report. She told authorities that Jackson got a gun out of a book bag, loaded it, pointed it at her and said he would kill her. When the authorities arrived, Jackson told them the couple had been arguing and denied having a gun in the house, according to the police report. But police found a Ruger SR9C 9mm handgun on the kitchen counter. After his arrest, the police report says Jackson admitted he had grabbed the book bag with the gun in it in response to his wife getting a knife. He also told police that he told his wife he “should shoot her,” prompting her remark about his accuracy, which Jackson related to police.
NFL quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, who spent the last three seasons as Russell Wilson’s backup on the Seattle Seahawks, pulled a gun on his wife during a domestic dispute over the weekend and his wife came back with one of the funniest lines of all-time. When a drunken Jackson pulled a gun on his wife and said that he “should shoot her”, his wife fired back with, “You better be accurate because you ain’t accurate on the field.” His wife has serious guts for ripping her quarterback husband’s passing accuracy as he is holding her at gunpoint, but the statement is true, Jackson only completed 59.6% of his passes during nine seasons in the NFL.
