Pacman Jones Accused of Punching a Woman January 15, 2008

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.

Marquis, if Pacman’s most recently reported exploits turn out to actually be true, he’s gonna have to get behind Mike Vick in the line of players looking to return to football. This guy has mad skills and I love watching him play, but he’s the Brittney Spears of the NFL.

If it is in fact true. It begs the question why? And if you can give me the ansewer to that then ansewer this why would Mike Vick smoke weed while hes waiting to be sentenced. Why would O.J. break the terms of his bail? who knows

K.C. – I don’t know all the details or if there is even truth to this, but because Vick got nicked for the marajuana charge he apparently was able to get into a program while incarcerated that, if he successfuly completes, would actually speed up his possible parole. Some cynical folks even are thinking he did it on purpose. Like I said, I don’t know if all of this is true or not, but it is kind of amazing that as soon as the sentence started to be served this new way of getting out early showed up. As for O.J., talk about sad. I can remember cheering him on when he broke 2,000 yards. He was a hell of a football player and in many ways I feel as sad for him as any of these fallen heroes.
