Phoenix Suns forward Josh Jackson was arrested at Rolling Loud Music Festival in Miami Florida, this past weekend after making repeated attempts to enter a VIP area without a proper pass, according to reports.

Jackson tried to enter a VIP section at the festival multiple times without a pass according to sources.

Jackson was allegedly told to sit on a golf cart and stay still by an officer after the incident, but got up and ran away.

Andy Slater of 640 The Hurricane first reported the news of Jackson's arrest.

A Suns spokesperson told ABC 15 in Arizona that the team is aware of the arrest and is "in the process of gathering more information". Jackson posted a $1,000 bond on Saturday.

Jackson, 22, faces charges of resisting arrest without violence and escape.

He was also suspended for one game following a separate incident in which he backed into a vehicle and left the scene.

On the court, Jackson has shot just 42% in his career with the Suns.
