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.

But it's his teammates that stepped up in a big way during the Bucks' smashing of the Boston Celtics in Round 2. Jokic collected his fourth foul with just over two minutes left in the third quarter and headed to the bench.

Considered a potential No. 1 overall pick while playing at Kansas, Jackson found trouble during his lone season in college.

Jackson averaged 11.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 2018-19, his second National Basketball Association season.

The second-year forward was supposed to sign autographs at the Fry's grocery store on 20th Street and Camelback Road in February but never showed up.

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.
