Phoenix Suns Forward and former Kansas Jayhawks star, Josh Jackson, was arrested this weekend at Miami's Rolling Loud festival.

Jackson was released Saturday on $1,000 bail.

Andy Slater of 640 The Hurricane first reported the news of Jackson's arrest. The escape charge was initially charged as a felony with the resisting arrest charge as a misdemeanor.

A Suns spokesperson told ABC 15 in Arizona that the team is aware of the arrest and is "in the process of gathering more information". This past year, during his second season in the NBA, Jackson averaged 11.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists while playing 25.2 minutes per game for Phoenix. For instance, he was fined $20,000 by the team last season after he skipped a team-sponsored autograph signing. During his single season in college at Kansas, he pled not guilty to misdemeanor property damage after being charged in 2017 for allegedly kicking a door and tail light of a auto driven by a KU women's basketball player.

He was also suspended for one game following a separate incident in which he backed into a vehicle and left the scene.
