D'Qwell Jackson

(Mar. 14, 2016)– Indianapolis Colts linebacker D’Qwell Jackson was found guilty of simple assault Monday afternoon in Washington, D.C.

In Feb. 2015, Jackson was arrested after punching a pizza delivery driver in the face. Police said the incident centered around a parking space.

Jackson’s sentencing is set for April 6.

The man Jackson punched is suing the linebacker in civil court. That lawsuit will be heard in court on April 29.

The Colts signed Jackson as a free agent from the Cleveland Browns in March 2014. He made the Pro Bowl after leading the team in tackles during the 2014-2015 season. His interception in the AFC Championship Game set off the DeflateGate controversy.
