NFL free agent quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was arrested for aggravated assault on his wife Friday night, after he allegedly pulled a gun on her.

According to police, Jackson arrived at the vacation home near Orlando, Florida, where the couple was staying. Upon entering the residence, the former Seahawk went upstairs and kicked in the bedroom door. The couple then got in an argument, Jackson then pointed a loaded gun at her and said, “I’ll kill you.”
According to a report from Orlando TV reporter Chris Hush of WESH, Jackson’s wife replied, “You better be accurate, because you ain’t accurate on the field.”
According to NESN, “A witness reportedly grabbed Jackson to prevent him from shooting. The 33-year-old QB was arrested and booked at Osceola County Jail and was released Saturday morning on $2,500 bond.”
Jackson has played for four different teams in his ten year NFL career. The Alabama State product became a free agent his offseason after his contract with the Seahawks expired.
