Man arrested in strip club disturbance involving Pacers

A man was arrested on criminal recklessness charges for a fight outside a strip club in which police say Indiana Pacers guard Stephen Jackson fired a gun in the air after he was slugged in the mouth and hit by a car.

Deon Willford was charged with felony counts of criminal recklessness, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident and operating without a license, police said Tuesday.

Police also questioned another Indianapolis man, who was later released. Police were still looking for a possible third person who had been with the other two men at the time.

Four Pacers were involved in the mayhem at Club Rio early Friday. Police said Jackson fired a gun in the air in apparent self-defense and was struck by a car that sent him tumbling onto the hood, reports AP.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Saturday that Jackson and teammates Jamaal Tinsley, Marquis Daniels and Jimmie Hunter committed an "error in judgment" by staying out late during training camp but he was relieved no one was seriously injured.

Jackson was expected at Pacers practice Tuesday for the first time since the fight.
