Pacman Jones Accused of Punching a Woman January 15, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Football, NFL, Sports.
Our good friend Pacman Jones is back in the news. According to ESPN.com Pacman has been accused of punching a woman at an Atlanta Strip Club:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A woman is seeking an arrest warrant against suspended Titans cornerback “Adam Pacman” Jones claiming he punched her at an Atlanta strip club.
Fulton County Magistrate Court officals told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Wanda S. Jackson asked for the warrant after a Jan. 3 altercation at the Body Tap Strip Club.
Jackson, an attorney, says she was in the club’s office when an angry Jones accused managers of stealing his money and bracelet.
Jackson said Jones lunged at her numerous times and then “sucker punched” her in the left eye.
Jackson did not immediately return a phone message requesting comment. Jones’ attorney Manny Arora said no warrant has been issued against Jones.
Last month Jones pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge related to a strip club shooting in Las Vegas last February that left one man paralyzed. He agreed to a year of probation, random drug testing, community service and anger management classes.
Jones has been arrested six times since being drafted sixth overall in 2005, including two arrests in Georgia in 2006 that the Titans did not learn about until 2007.
In April, Jones was suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for the entire 2007 season for his role in inciting the Las Vegas incident.
At the time of his suspension, one of the changes Jones told Goodell he intended to make was to stay out of clubs and to avoid situations in which he might be compromised. Goodell has said that he has apprised Jones that he will ultimately be judged by his actions, not his words.
In mid-December, the NFL rejected an appeal by the players’ union on behalf of Jones to have him reinstated for the final two games of the regular season.
