PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Los Angeles home of former Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson was invaded on Wednesday, according to a report from TMZ.com.
TMZ reported on Friday that their law enforcement sources says four to five people raided Jackson’s home in Tarzana, CA with guns. Jackson was reportedly not home during the invasion, but there were “roughly” six people inside of his house who “fought” off the intruders.READ MORE: WATCH LIVE: Gov.

One person in the home, per TMZ, suffered minor injuries after being “pistol-whipped.”
Furthermore, TMZ reports one source says the target was “someone staying inside of the home,” not Jackson himself.
Jackson, now with the Washington Redskins, was released by the Eagles back in March of 2014 after an NJ.com report cited Jackson’s gang ties, which he later vehemently denied.READ MORE: WATCH LIVE: Head Coach Nick Sirianni, Eagles Players Speak To The Media
“Company you keep man, company you keep,” Ike Reese said, reacting to the story Friday on the 94WIP Mike & Ike Show. “Even though he wasn’t there, but still.”

“But here’s the thing, one day he will be,” Reese’ co-host Michael Barkann replied. “It’s who you ride with and if those are the guys he’s riding with—we used to say this all the time about AI—if those are the guys you’re riding with and you happen to be at home. I’m surprised that only someone got pistol-whipped and no one got shot.”MORE NEWS: Philadelphia Weather: Slow-Moving Storm System Bringing Potential For Gusty Thunderstorms, Flooding
