Jeremy Jackson is headed to rehab.
On Tuesday, it was reported the Baywatch actor was released from jail on a bond and almost immediately checked himself into a rehabilitation center. The troubled celeb's lawyer confirmed the move to a treatment facility was not court ordered and was completely Jeremy's decision.
Well that's good to hear!
As we previously reported, the 35-year-old was arrested for a second time this summer after he allegedly stabbed a woman following his attempt to steal the alleged victim's boyfriend's car. So scary!

However, the reality TV star has since pleaded not guilty to the charge and is expected back in court on November 20.
Unfortunately, this is not the Celebrity Big Brother alum's first run in with the law. Previously, Jeremy was arrested back in April for stabbing another man but the charges were eventually dropped since he claimed it was self defense.
Not to mention, the controversial celeb reportedly got into ANOTHER brawl last year at Paris Hilton's Malibu beach house. Yikes!
Still, David Hasselhoff's TV son has a history of substance abuse problems as he appeared on Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab program back in 2011.
Here's hoping this time away will give Jeremy the help he so clearly needs.
