Former "Baywatch" star Jeremy Jackson was arrested for stabbing a man, but he says it was self defense in the midst of a wild party.
Jeremy was jailed Saturday, after cops nabbed him for allegedly burglarizing an Airbnb. Police say during the arrest they realized he fit the profile of a man who stabbed a guy the day before.
Jeremy tells TMZ, he rented an Airbnb and threw a party with some women. During the shindig, he says a guy showed up, beat him up and robbed him to the tune of $2,300.
This is where it gets bizarre. Jeremy says one of the women said she knew a guy who could help him get the money back, so Jeremy told her to get him over STAT. He says the guy showed up but then turned on him and tried robbing him as well.
Jeremy says the guy pulled a gun, and in self defense he pulled a buck knife from his jeans and stabbed the guy in the stomach area and arms. The guy dropped the gun and ran.
Jeremy identifies the guy as a Canoga Park gangbanger with a clown tattoo on his face.
As for the burglary ... Jeremy says he went back to the Airbnb the day after the stabbing to retrieve his Gucci sunglasses and some other items and had to break in to get them. That's when the cops were called.
