Remember back in July when it was reported that armed men broke into Stephen Jackson’s house, locked his wife in a bathroom, and took off with a gun and some luxury items?
Well now Stephen Jackson says he thinks the whole thing never happened. Jackson is quoted as saying the following by the Charlotte Observer:
“To this day, there’s been no proof of anyone breaking in, so my attitude is it didn’t happen,” Jackson said. “I was going through a divorce situation with my wife at the time, so there were a lot of emotionally different things going on.
“Nothing was stolen, no breaking and entering. If it did happen, I thank God that she’s OK. If not, then I’m ready to put it behind me.”
Sounds like a case of a disgruntled soon to be ex-wife trying to get some sympathy. I’m pretty sure it’s a crime in and of itself to report a false crime. The law enforcement officials that wasted their time searching for fake robbers could have been solving and preventing real crimes. Could Jackson’s wife face a criminal investigation based on these new revelations? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
