MIAMI - Phoenix Suns forward Josh Jackson was arrested at the Rolling Loud Music Festival in Miami last weekend for felony escape and resisting arrest, according to the police report.
According to the report, Jackson entered a VIP club without a pass and refused to leave when asked by a police officer working security.
Jackson was eventually handcuffed and escorted out. While instructed to sit on a golf cart and stay there, Jackson allegedly got up and began walking away. When the officer saw him, Jackson began running, the report says.
Jackson was eventually found and detained by backup officers. His escape charge is a felony and his resisting arrest without violence charge is a misdemeanor.
Issues with law enforcement became national news out of the festival when rapper Kodak Black was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service for weapons-related charges while at the festival and rapper Lil Wayne refused to perform after he was searched by police at the stadium.
The Suns have not yet released a statement on Jackson's arrest.
The 22-year-old was drafted No. 4 overall by the Suns in 2017. Last season, Jackson averaged 11.5 points per game.
