Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has been arrested in Central Florida after allegedly pulling a gun on his wife, reports Chris Hush of WESH.

In the arrest report, Jackson is accused of pointing a loaded gun at his wife while intoxicated and threatening to kill her. Jackson’s kids were asleep during the incident, and a witness in the house stopped Jackson from shooting, according to the report.

Jackson, 33, was a first-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2006. Across two stints, Jackson has played four seasons for the Seahawks, including the last three years.
