No, Tarvaris Jackson Isn't In Trouble With The Law

Tarvarius Jackson faces two counts of armed robbery, one count of aggravated assault, one count of murder and two counts of felony murder. Jackson is one of four young men indicted in the killing of a security guard in Georgia back on September 5th. Don't believe me? Here's the link.

No, Tarvarius Jackson does not play quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. Tarvaris Jackson (no 'u' in the first name) does. While the merits of his play have been thoroughly debated in this space numerous times, our T-Jax is still by all accounts an outstanding citizen.

Had you worried there for a bit, didn't I? My uncle, a bitter "former" Vikings fan that gave up all hope after the infamous Drew Pearson shove in the 1975 playoffs, sent me the link with the first sentence of this post as the subject line. For about ten seconds, I was fooled. Don't let anyone fool you today.

Note: Before you go nuts in the comments, I am in no way making light of the awful crime that was committed. I'm simply sharing how my smart-ass relative temporarily scared the crap out of me during an otherwise painfully slow news cycle in the Vikings offseason. Enjoy your rest of your Thursday and rest easy knowing that the Vikings players have kept their names off the police blotter. (**cough cough** JOHNNY JOLLY **cough cough**)
