Kansas City Man admits illegal ammunition possession and assault on federal officer

Date:

Kansas City, Missouri – A Kansas City man named Charles D. Jackson, who goes by nicknames “Grove Street” and “C Jackem,” has confessed to federal charges of having ammunition illegally and attacking a federal law enforcement officer. Jackson, 30, admitted his guilt to U.S. Chief District Judge Beth Phillips, facing charges of being a felon in possession of ammunition and assaulting a federal officer.

The incident occurred on August 24, 2023, when ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives) agents executed a search warrant at Jackson’s home. As they approached, an ATF agent used her vehicle to block a black Kia sedan in the driveway. Despite the officers wearing body armor and identifying themselves as ATF Police, and using emergency signals, Jackson tried to escape. He attempted to drive away, crashing into the ATF vehicle multiple times.

The agent managed to stop him by pushing the Kia into the garage, which immobilized it and caused damage to the ATF vehicle. Jackson has agreed to cover the costs for the damage as part of his plea deal.

Inside the car, agents discovered a loaded AR-style pistol without a serial number and an extended magazine holding 39 rounds. As someone with a past felony conviction for first-degree robbery, Jackson is legally banned from possessing any firearms or ammunition.
