Grizzlies' Jackson in diversion program for arrest

Memphis Grizzlies forward Josh Jackson was entered into a diversion program to settle a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest stemming from his arrest at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami in May, according to online court records.

Jackson was entered into the program on July 2, according to the records. He also was charged with a felony charge of escape when he was arrested on May 10, but that charge was dismissed last month, according to the records.

It is not clear from the records what the details of the diversion program include. If he successfully completes the diversion program, the charge will be dismissed.

TMZ first reported the news that Jackson was entered into the diversion program.

Jackson, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 draft, was traded by the Phoenix Suns to the Grizzlies earlier this month.

He was arrested at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami Gardens, Florida, after he attempted to enter the VIP area too many times without a proper pass. He was handcuffed by police and then ran away from the officers before being detained, according to the police report.

Jackson, 22, averaged 11.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 79 games (29 starts) last season, his second in the NBA.

Before entering the NBA, Jackson agreed to enter a diversion program in 2017 to settle a misdemeanor count of criminal property damage stemming from a confrontation with a University of Kansas women's basketball player in 2016.

    Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused ..
    Any tips? Thanks a lot!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of
    plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique
    content I've either created myself or outsourced but it
    looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any
    solutions to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I'd genuinely appreciate it.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
