Former Falcons DL is wanted by police

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

We talked about this a little in today’s Hot Routes, but I wanted to expand \on the topic of former Falcons DL Grady Jackson and about how an arrest warrant has been issued in his name.

As the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports, Jackson has been charged with theft. Allegedly, he received property that was stolen from former Lions DB Travis Fisher, and Duluth, Ga., police began investigating Jackson when a watch he pawned for $2,000 was determined to be stolen.

Jackson calls the entire incident “a misunderstanding.”

From the AJC:

According to Duluth police investigators, the upscale Aximum watch had been reported stolen on June 4, 2009, by former Detroit Lions defensive back Travis Fisher. Fisher told police in Michigan that he believed that the diamond-encrusted watch, which he had purchased from a Buckhead store for more than $40,000, was stolen from a bag while he was at football practice.

Jackson, a starter for the Falcons in 2006 and 2007, played with Fisher on the 2009 Lions team.

According to a report by Duluth police Investigator William Petty, when contacted by police, Jackson told Petty that he had bought the watch from "some guy in Alabama about one to two years ago."

Jackson currently is out of the state, and he’s listed on the UFL’s Florida Tuskers roster.
