KU basketball star Josh Jackson won’t miss games after misdemeanor property damage charge

University of Kansas freshman men’s basketball star Josh Jackson, 20, was charged Friday in Douglas County District Court with misdemeanor property damage. The charge relates to a Dec. 9 vandalism of a KU women’s basketball player’s car outside the Yacht Club bar in Lawrence. That player, McKenzie Calvert, is the same woman who a university investigation found Lagerald Vick, Jackson’s teammate, likely committed domestic violence against more than a year ago. KU coach Bill Self said Jackson, who has played all 28 games, had already been disciplined. The women’s player has seen her minutes per game nearly cut in half after reporting the incident to police.
