What was he thinking. If you're on probation, you're not allowed to go to bars, drink alcohol, or possess a firearm. If this was any other Joe of the street, there would be no bail for probation violation. Carl Brizzi, good for you for charging this dense baffoon. On another note, it's not like he is the only one partying it up. It is always nice to see 4 or 5 of the Pacers out in Broad Ripple right after the just got it handed to them after a game. "It's up to who" this season?

Yes, he was great but the Pacers made him great.

Mr Jackson,you were given a second chance and blew it. Were the lap dances and such worth it? There are millions that would trade places with you to go play basketball and get paid millions. Then you go out and violate your probation????? What were you thinking? Do the time.

What a turnaround. This is not the kind of players we want or need to represent basketball in the state of Indiana. GO COLTS

As long as Stephen is with the Pacers he will have a smooth sail through court and be back on the b-ball court in no time...I guess life is a game...

Pacer fans should hope for a conviction so they can void his contract. They will never get any trade value for him. At least it will make the roster decisions easier. Brilliant keeping JO, Tinsley, and Jackson. These were changes the Pacers said would happen while they asked me to buy full season tickets???? Now I'm a sucker just like Walsh.

I don't really think Michigan or Indiana will really hold Jackson accountable for his actions. A civil proceeding in Michigan should not be cause for him to still be on probation in that state. If he wasn't on probation in Michigan and if it wasn't an election year, he wouldn't have been charged here either. He will not face any consequences from either action, want to know why? By the time his case goes to trial, the election will already be over, the charges will be dropped and then Michigan will drop the violation. It pays to be an NBA player, no matter what state you are in. I will say I like Stephen Jackson, and I think it's unfortunate that both of these things have happened to him. It would be different if we were once again talking about maurice clarrett, but we're not, Jackson didn't provoke either one of these attacks, and if he wasn't an NBA player, neither one of these things would have happened.

Some of what you said maybe true. However, the real reason he may walk w/o jail time will be from the brilliance of Mr. Voyles. As I "hear" he's the best money can buy yet a excellent attorney.

Jackson should stay in Michigan. We should of never kept him too due to the Detroit brawl. To me he is a violent role model that should be booked. Now they can take his guns and games of the pacers away. But would they, probably not, they might be scared of him or his attorney so they might let him walk. Of course the Pacers will accept him back. Jamall should face up on whose small amount of illegal drug he had in his car. Even if it was not his, Jamall should be still charged due to have and to accept any amount of illegal drug in a motor operaed vehicle. It doesnt matter if they guys are role models or not, obviously they are acting they arent, but yet they have this type of money to throw around. It doenst matter whose illegal drug was in Jamall's car the driver should take responsibility on any person in the car should ot have any amounts of illegal drugs in a motor operated vehicle. It was not operated but it was in a car that was operated and was going to be operated. the fact still remains it was in a motor vehicle.
The person that faced up to the illegal drug should get a healty fine.

you guys are being way to hard on the guy, so what hes on probation and now he violates it, big fuckin deal, everyone wants to hate on him because hes a pro player and rich, fact is , is his past is haunting him just like the whole criminal system, and or driving record and or credit scores. Its a shame people cant see people for who the person acually is and what he became today. Knowone was there and can say shit. and not what the might have done in the past, we all have skeletons in out closets and or something we regret doing. Stupid ass system we have in america , someone fucked up and now they are hemmed up on some bullshit ass charges in my opinion.
