Phoenix Suns forward Josh Jackson is facing a felony charge of escape after being arrested at a weekend music festival in Miami Gardens, Fla.
Jackson allegedly attempted to enter the VIP area at the Rolling Loud festival multiple times without a proper pass, reported Andy Slater of 640 The Hurricane in Miami. After police handcuffed the 6-foot-8 Jackson, he ran away, per the report.
Miami-Dade County police records obtained by Arizona Sports confirm that the 22-year-old was arrested Saturday on a felony charge of escape and a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest without violence. He was released after posting a $1,000 bond that same day and has a hearing date scheduled for June 10.
The No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Jackson averaged 11.5 points and 4.4 rebounds per game in 79 games (29 starts) during his second season with the Suns in 2018-19.
Arizona Sports said the Suns are aware of the situation and are gathering information.
