Jason was sentenced to probation and 300 hours of community service.And now we can look forward to seeing him on the Strictly dance floorIt was announced on The One Show in early September that Jason will be one of the 12 stars competing on Strictly Come Dancing this year.He said he was “proud and humbled to be participating” in the 18th series of Strictly Come Dancing, saying: “Strictly was the first show I ever watched when I moved to the UK and I’m a massive fan.
“My 6-year-old daughter never got the chance to see me run out on the field at an NFL game but she is very excited about me taking to the dance floor. I hope I can do her proud.”
