According to local reports, a woman called police saying that her child had been injured. She said that when she went to pick up her kids on Saturday, her son had been crying. When she asked Jackson what happened, he told her, “I had to fix his little attitude.”

The kids told the woman that Jackson slammed the boy to the ground, causing him to fall down the stairs, resulting in his arm to fracture. She said the child couldn’t move his right arm beyond wiggling his fingers.
