Former Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has pleaded not guilty in his assault case.

Osceola County Court records show that the not-guilty plea was entered on Jackson’s behalf on Tuesday.

Jackson is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon/without intent to kill in connection with a domestic dispute from last month in Kissimmee, Fla. in which he allegedly pulled a loaded gun on a woman reported to be his wife and threatened to kill her. The assault charge is a third-degree felony in Florida.

TMZ Sports reported last week that a judge denied Jackson’s request for a free public defender despite Jackson’s claim that he was broke and could not afford an attorney. Court documents list Warren W. Lindsey as Jackson’s main attorney. Lindsey is an Orlando-based criminal defense lawyer.
