WSOCTV 9 in Charlotte is reporting that former Pacer, Stephen Jackson's home was robbed today by armed gunmen. Jackson was not at home. His wife was home at the time, and was apparently held at gunpoint before being locked in a bathroom as the assailants made their escape.

ProBasketballTalk's Matt Moore briefly touched on the situation in a post this evening. Jackson did not leave the Pacers on the best of terms, and his history of legal troubles will surely enter into the coverage of this incident. He has made mistakes in the past, but they really have no bearing on today's events. Whatever lingering ill will Pacer fans might have for Jackson should surely be set aside this evening. Let's keep him and his family in our thoughts, and may the culprits meet with swift justice.
