Former NBA player Sam Jacobson and his wife are charged with felonies in the sale of a Minnesota home five years ago. Jacobson and his wife, Traci Jacobson, each were charged Tuesday with theft by false representation and theft by swindle. They’re due in court Oct. 24. The charges stem from the August 2011 short sale of Sam Jacobson’s Apple Valley home to Traci Jacobson, who went by Traci Quam and was his live-in girlfriend at the time.
Incoming Knicks point guard Derrick Rose has gone on the offensive against an ex-girlfriend accusing him of gang rape — calling her the “sexual aggressor” in the incident and asking a judge to fine her, according to new court documents. “Really scorched-earth legal tactics by the new team leader,” sports-law expert Daniel Wallach noted to The Post.
Rose wants the woman fined ahead of trial because her parents wouldn’t show up for full depositions. As part of her case, the woman cites her “traditional religious upbringing” and changes in her demeanor after the alleged rape, and Rose says it’s impossible to substantiate these claims without grilling “the people who know her best — her parents.”
Detroit Pistons assistant coach Tim Hardaway is contesting drunken driving charges stemming from an April arrest in Oakland County, according to a WDIV-TV report. Hardaway’s vehicle was stopped by authorities along 13 Mile and Lahser roads, near his home. He had a blood alcohol level of .17 percent, according to court records obtained by WDIV. That is more than twice the state’s legal limit of .08 percent. Beverly Hills police declined to comment on the case, which is ongoing.
