According to witnesses on scene, during the police stop, the officer handled Jackson roughly and raised his voice to the Eagle. Reports say Jackson was cooperative throughout the incident and did what was asked of him. DeSean was eventually released without a ticket, raising the question of whether the detainment was even necessary.

DeSean Jackson is a champion against Pancreatic Cancer and runs Foundation 10, his own foundation to search for a cure. Today's charity event was to be held at the Trinity Baptist Church in Philadelphia to promote screenings and raise awareness for personal health.
