Florida Gators redshirt freshman cornerback JC Jackson had his latest brush with the law and guns on Saturday night. According to the Gainesville Police Department, Jackson was involved in an armed robbery with two other men.
The men allegedly entered a home, before taking cash, marijuana and an Xbox from the occupants at gunpoint.
Jackson, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound corner, was the only man positively identified at the time and later turned himself in.

JC Jackson has previously had brushes with the law when he was a passenger in a car driven by Gators quarterback Treon Harris. When the vehicle was pulled over, police found marijuana.
Jackson was also grazed by a bullet in a shooting in his hometown of Immokalee. Two other occupants of the vehicle he was in were shot in the face.
Last season, JC Jackson played in just one game before being forced to sit out due to injury. He took a redshirt.
