Ya gotta stop that evil air...

What is it with basketball players, anyway? Stephen Jackson had a gun with him and got in an altercation outside. Doofus. My favorite part of the story is that he told police he fired his gun up in the air "in self defense". What was the air trying to do to him?

I'm sure there's a lot more to the story. Probably an ex-girlfriend in the car that allegedly hit him, too.

Pacer punched, hit by car, fires shots
Friday October 6, 2006

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana Pacers player Stephen Jackson was hit in the mouth, struck by a car and fired a gun outside a strip club early Friday, police said.

Stephen Jackson was one of four Pacers involved in a shooting outside an Indianapolis strip club early Friday morning.

Jackson, 28, told officers he fired his 9 mm pistol four or five times in the air in self-defense after he was punched and hit by a car outside the club, said Sgt. Matthew Mount, spokesman for the Indianapolis Police Department.

Jackson went up onto the hood of the car, Mount said.

There were no reports of anyone being struck by the gunfire, and police did not make any immediate arrests. Police are looking for the car that hit Jackson and others involved.

An argument involving patrons, Jackson and other members of the Pacers began inside the club, Mount said. The players said they left the club, but patrons followed them outside.

"At some point when leaving the club, a verbal altercation ensued that turned into a physical altercation," Mount said.

Jackson was limping but refused medical treatment at the scene, Mount said. He conferred with a Pacers trainer and sought medical treatment at a hospital.

The other Pacers at the scene were Jamaal Tinsley, Marquis Daniels and Jimmie Hunter.

Tinsley and Daniels also had guns in their cars, and all three players had permits for the weapons, Mount said, although Daniels' permit was issued in Florida.

The Pacers planned to release a statement about the incident later Friday. The Associated Press left messages seeking comment with Jackson's agent, Dan Fegan.

Jackson joined the Pacers in 2004 and averaged 16 points last season.

Daniels played for the Dallas Mavericks last season.

As Colin Cowherd said on ESPN radio: "Any story that starts out '3:00AM at a Gentelman's Club' can't be good."
