Affidavit: Kansas' Josh Jackson made threats against women's basketball player
Jackson was suspended at start of Big 12 tournament for another incident
Douglas County District Court officials released the affidavit that, via the Lawrence Journal-World, can be read here.
The document contains statements from three Kansas women’s players, including McKenzie Calvert, whose father recently.
On page 7 of the affidavit, Calvert alleges Jackson “was yelling for her to get out of the car and that he would beat her a--.”
The incident is tied to Jackson damaging Calvert’s car the night of Dec. 9 in Lawrence after a heated incident between Calvert and her ex-boyfriend, Kansas player Lagereald Vick. Vick allegedly. Calvert threw a drink on Vick and left a bar this past December. The affidavit reads that Jackson followed Calvert to her car, and she eventually locked herself in the vehicle.
That is when Jackson allegedly began damaging the vehicle and made the threat. Jackson was charged.
Jackson was suspended for the start of the Big 12 tournament by coach Bill Self, but the incident was related to a fender-bender by Jackson in February that he did not tell Self about for nearly a month. Kansas is the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region and plays Friday night against UC Davis. Jackson is scheduled to play in that game.
“[Jackson] is a tough-minded individual; I think he’s focused,” Self told reporters at a press conference in Tulsa on Thursday, according to the AP. “And certainly his role or playing time or whatnot, whatever, will only be dictated by what happens between the lines. It won’t be dictated by anything else.”
Jackson’s damage of Calvert’s vehicle was put at $1,127 with a total repair charge of $3,150, per the affidavit. The district attorney did not levy harsher charges on Jackson because there was not sufficient evidence to indicate Jackson was the only person who damaged the vehicle.
