Jeremy Jackson, 34, former ‘Baywatch’ TV show star, was arrested
on suspicion of stabbing a man and fleeing. The incident unfolded when
officers received a call that someone stabbed a man in his left upper
torso with a knife in Westlake, CA and then fled.
The victim identified his attacker as “Hobie” the name of Jackson’s
character on the television show. The day after the attack, the police
received a call of a possible prowler in the same neighborhood where the
attack occurred. The officers stopped the alleged prowler and identified
the man as Jackson.
Jackson was taken into custody for
assault with a deadly weapon and released the same day on bail. If convicted,
Jackson could face up to 5 years in State Prison.
