Tavaris was reportedly intoxicated during the incident.
Jackson was visiting family in Kissimmee, Fla., just south of Orlando. His children were reportedly asleep during the confrontation. A witness grabbed a hold of Jackson to stop him from shooting, according to the arrest report.
When Jackson pulled the gun, his wife said, “You better be accurate because you ain’t accurate on the field.” She grabbed an iron and kitchen knife to protect herself.
Jackson, 33, has been in the NFL for nine years. He has played for the Seahawks, Vikings, and Bills, and hasn’t started a game since 2011. In March, it was reported that the Seahawks wanted him back for this season.
