WNBA player Deanna Jackson was arrested in Israel after engaging in fisticuffs with an opponent in the Israeli league in which she plays during the offseason.

She was arrested Wednesday night after attacking Ina Gourevitch, an Elitzur Ramle guard, following the league championship game won 81-68 by Ramle. In the closing minutes of the game, Jackson and Gourevitch got into a skirmish and shouted insults at each other.

Police said the clash spilled into the parking lot, where Jackson sought out Gourevitch and punched her, breaking her nose.

Wait, her last name's Jackson?  Is she related to Stephen Jackson?  'Cuz he's got them crazy eyes.  He's the kind of guy who'd fire a gun into the air outside a strip club if he got the chance.

Thanks to readers Ned and Matt, the latter of whom says: "And YOU can count… on me waiting for you in the parking lot!"
