University of Florida football player J.C. Jackson was arrested Saturday night for his role in an armed robbery in Gainesville, FL., where he’s being held by local police on $150,000 bond.

Jackson, a 5-11, 195-lb. defensive back who redshirted for the Gators his freshman year in 2014, turned himself over to cops hours after allegedly setting up the robbery that allowed two gunman to steal $382 in cash, marijuana and two video gaming consoles.

According to the police report, Jackson called the victim and set up a visit to his apartment to hang out and smoke weed. When Jackson – who the victim described as an acquaintance – arrived, he opened the door without knocking, looked in to find the the victim and two guests inside the apartment, then closed the door behind him.

Jackson was then let into the apartment, only this time he was joined by two unidentified males. He soon walked out the door again, supposedly to answer a phone call.

That’s when one of the visitors allegedly pulled out a gun, ordering all the victims on the ground while his accomplice emptied their pockets. The crooks also made away with weed and the gaming systems – reportedly Xboxes – before fleeing in “Nissan-type” car, according to News 4 Jacksonville.

Jackson never returned to the apartment, but called his victim later that day once police arrived at the crime scene.
