Kendrick Perkins & Stephen Jackson Arrested For Public Intoxication & Disorderly Conduct
The mix of Kendrick Perkins and Stephen Jackson just seems like a recipe fordiaster. It is a strange story that has a lot of questions to be answered.
Here is what we know so far.
KFDM has confirmed that NBA stars Kendrick Perkins and Stephen Jackson were arrested in Beaumont early Saturday morning. The two were booked into the Jefferson County jail around 4:00a.m. on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct. The charges are a class C misdemeanor. Per Texas penal code 12.23, an individual guilty of a class C misdemeanor shall be punished by a fine not to exceed $500. Both Perkins and Jackson posted bond of $150 shortly after being booked and were released.
The arrest comes after Perkins reportedly had an accident at Stephen Jackson’s home in Port Arthur late Thursday night. KFDM confirmed a 27 year old male was taken from Jackson’s home by ambulance to the Medical Center of Southeast Texas. The subject was treated for minor injuries and released.
I am just speculating but it sounds to me like Perkins and Jackson had a few too many bottles of Ciroc and that is what caused the “accident” which lead to Perkins ended up in the hospital.
Probably had a bout of alcohol poisoning.
The NBA Lockout is fantastic.
