Los Angeles Chargers cornerback JC Jackson was booked into the Bristol County Jail and House of Correction in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, on Monday afternoon in connection with a non-violent domestic incident, according to a spokesman for the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office.
Jackson was transported to the station by Fall River police after appearing in probate court.
“We are aware of media reports regarding JC Jackson this afternoon,” the Chargers said in a statement Monday. “We will continue to gather information on the matter and will refrain from further comment at this time.”
The sheriff’s department did not provide additional information on the matter. Fall River police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Chargers placed Jackson, 27, on injured reserve after he suffered a season-ending knee injury against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7.
Jackson joined the Chargers in the offseason, signing a five-year, $82.5 million contract in free agency. In five games, Jackson recorded two pass deflections.
An undrafted free agent in 2017, Jackson signed with the New England Patriots, where he played four seasons and led the NFL with 25 interceptions during that span, while earning a Super Bowl ring and Pro Bowl recognition.
