Indianapolis Colts linebacker, and the man whose interception in the AFC Championship game versus the New England Patriots many believe sparked the ongoing deflate gate investigation, D'Well Jackson was arrested last night on assault charges.
The former Cleveland Browns man was involved in an altercation with a pizza delivery guy in Washington D.C., ABC 7 News reports.
Police issued Jackson with a citation after the 31-year-old allegedly punched the fast food worker in the face and back of the head following an argument over a parking space.
According to the reports, Jackson became enraged after the pizza boy took the spot which he said he only needed momentarily.
The Colts star swore at the driver before allegedly assaulting him. As well as any ongoing legal issues that arise, Jackson will now also likely face punishment under the NFL's updated personal conduct policy.

Although the incident took place during the offseason the NFL penalty could mean missing Colts practice or even game time until any legal matters are resolved.
Having played in every single regular season game since the beginning of the 2011 season (Browns 2011-2012, Colts 2013-2014) he will be hoping Tuesday's incident doesn't affect the 2015 campaign.
Jackson recently posted to Twitter a meeting with NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp. Its safe to say the week since hasn't gone well for either man.
