Baywatch Favourite Going To Jail After Stabbing Woman

Here’s another sad tale of a former child star going off the rails.

Jeremy Jackson, who grew up on our TV screens as Hobie Buchannon, the son of David Hasselhoff’s character Mitch on Baywatch, is heading to jail after stabbing a woman.


The former star has been sentenced to 270 days in prison and five years probation following the incident in 2015.

According to TMZ, the judge gave the Jackson 109 days credit. It means he’ll only have to serve 161 days behind bars.

There are some suggestions he may get out even sooner for good behaviour.

Jackson was also instructed to take anger management courses and to stay completely off drugs as part of his probation.  

The 2015 incident, saw Jackson stab a woman with a knife after they got in an argument in the street.


It’s alleged he was trying to steal her boyfriend’s car when she confronted him and was stabbed in the back, leg and arm.

Jackson previously was arrested in 2005 after setting up a meth lab in his home.

His public struggle with sobriety has seen him appear on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.

He also found himself in trouble after exposing a fellow castmate’s breasts on Celebrity Big Brother UK.
