Jeremy Jackson has been arrested and sent to the jail on suspicion of stabbing a man in Los Angeles.
The actor who played the character of Hobie Buchannon in the popular TV series “Baywatch has been reportedly taken into the custody for injuring a person with the knife. The police sources said the arrest was made when the victim identified the suspect as Hobie, the former Baywatch actor and the son of David Hasselhoff’s character Mitch Buchannon.
Now here is a twist in the tale. Police received a report of burglary on Saturday in the same neighborhood where the man has been stabbed. When police arrived, they found that the burglar fits the profile of the man who was suspected of stabbing a day before. It was Jeremy indeed and they arrested him immediately.
According to TMZ, Jeremy claimed he is innocent and did nothing wrong. He said actually it was he himself who became a victim of an armed assault. Some guy pulled a gun on him and he defended himself with the knife. In self-defense, he stabbed the guy in stomach and chest area. After that, the guy dropped his gun and ran away. Reports suggest that Jeremy was released on that same day on $30,000 bond.
Jeremy Jackson, who was featured in the “Baywatch” from 1991 to 1999, had a troubled life history. In an interview on Child Star Confidential, Jeremy admitted of having a severe drug problem. He also checked himself in a rehab and claimed that he is clean and sober since 2000.
