Jeremy Jackson, famous for the character of Hobie Buchannon, the son of David Hasselhoff’s character Mitch Buchannon in the 1990’s popular show “Baywatch” was arrested from 700 block of South Union Avenue. The police arrested him after the victim identified Jackson as ‘Hobie’- the name of his character on Baywatch.
The victim was attacked on 1600 block of 7th street. Jackson, who also uses his last name Dunn was arrested after he stabbed a man with a deadly weapon on Friday. The police was informed on Saturday about a possible prowler in the same neighborhood where the attack took place. He was released on $30,000 bail the same day. The man suffered a stab in his upper left torso.
Jacksons’ lawyer said that the stabbing was an act of defense. Someone pulled out a gun on Jackson and so he was compelled to use the knife. Jackson revealed that he had been in a party with some women and was beaten up and robbed off $2300 by one of his attendees. Jeremy’s lawyer clarified that his client is innocent and is trying to make a career back into the industry. He is trying his best to get his life back on track.
Jackson admitted that he quit “Baywatch” because of his severe addiction to drugs. He was a cast member at “Celebrity rehab with Dr. Drew” in 2011, where he said that his choice of drug was crystal meth. After an arrest for methamphetamine, Jackson said that he wanted to reinvent himself as an action star like Sylvester Stallone. Jackson was also addicted to steroids and used pills worth $20,000.
Earlier this year, Jackson starred on “Celebrity Big Brother UK,” but was cast out after he exposed the breasts of housemate Chloe Goodman. He was threatened by the police after he left the show.
