The Immokalee High graduate was taken into custody at the Bristol County Jail & House of Correction on Monday afternoon. Jackson was brought to the jail by local police after an appearance in probate court.
“We are aware of media reports this afternoon pertaining to J.C. Jackson. We will continue to gather information on this matter and will refrain from further comment at this time," the Chargers released in a statement.
Jackson, 27, joined the Patriots in 2018 as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Maryland.
He played four seasons with New England and recorded 158 total tackles, 25 interceptions, and 53 passes defended in 62 regular-season games. He was part of the Patriots' Super Bowl LIII team his rookie season and made the Pro Bowl in 2021, his last season with the team.
In March, Jackson signed a five-year, $82.5 million contract with the Chargers that includes $40 million in guaranteed money.
Jackson missed two of the first four games this season after undergoing ankle surgery in August and suffered a season-ending injury on Oct. 23, when he ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee in the Chargers' Week 7 loss against the Seattle Seahawks.
