Murray State Guard Accused Of Running Into People- In A Bad Way

((HT: WPSDLocal6/Paducah, KY))

Murray State basketball player Zay Jackson appeared in court to answer to charges of assault from Sunday.

Allegedly, Jackson was in a Wal-Mart where Jackson allegedly assaulted two people with his car. The victims suffered minor injuries.

The judge reduced each of Jackson's two counts of 1st degree assault to 2nd degree assault, and his bond was also lowered to $15,000. He remained in jail as of Monday afternoon.

Jackson's preliminary hearing is set for September 26th...

Murray State Athletic Director Allen Ward released the standard, brief statement stating that they are aware of what happened and are not commenting further...

Of course...

It was the lead story in Paducah...
Murray State released the following statement from head coach Steve Prohm: “I was disappointed and surprised to learn of the incident on Sunday involving Zay. I will continue to work with the authorities to gather and evaluate the facts as quickly as I can to get a clearer picture of what actually happened. Until that time, Zay has been suspended from all team activities. There is a standard of conduct I expect from all my players, and from what I know at this point, that standard was compromised. I will support Zay in his efforts to make this right, but I anticipate this matter will take time to fully resolve."
