Disturbing news out of Charlotte this morning. According to the Associated Press, armed burglars broke into the home of Stephen Jackson while the Bobcats star was in Texas for a basketball camp. The thieves reportedly held his wife at gunpoint before locking her in a bathroom, eventually making off with a collection of valuables. Scary stuff.
But wait a second. Somebody really thought it was a good idea to rob Captain Jack?
This Stephen Jackson?
Is that...? Yes, that's a tattoo on his stomach of two hands in prayer, holding a pistol.
And these masterminds put a gun in his wife's face? Anytime you're robbing someone and it turns out they have a gun, that should be a red flag right there:
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police had made no arrests as of Friday morning, Officer Rosalyn Harrington, a department spokeswoman, told The Associated Press.
Officers reported the thieves took a 9mm pistol, a ruby-encrusted wristwatch, a Louis Vuitton wallet and other items.
Some advice for the criminals: Turn yourselves in while you the have chance. You held a gun to Captain Jack's wife. Yes, you got his Ruby wristwatch and his Louis Vuitton wallet. But do you think that 9 mm pistol is the only gun he's got?
It's on now.
