Former NFL defensive back Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones was reportedly arrested in Cincinnati on Monday morning on charges of misdemeanor assault. According to WCPO Cincinnati, court documents say Jones punched and kicked a person in the head until they were unconscious.
This is certainly not the first time Jones has been in trouble with the law.
In March of 2019, Jones was arrested at the Rising Sun Casino in Indiana after officials with the Indiana State Gaming Commission were called to investigate reports of someone cheating at a table. Jones was suspected of “capping bets,” which is a form of cheating where the outcome of the game is known, and the player then adds more chips to his winning bet.
Jones didn’t take kindly to the allegations — telling multiple officials, “F*ck you” … while moving his hands in a threatening manner and gesturing with his middle finger, according to the court docs.
During the altercation, IGCE agent Christopher Norton says Jones turned to another IGCE agent and told him, “I will kill you … I will whoop your ass,” accordin to TMZ.
Norton says Jones continued to act in a threatening manner, so he subdued the NFL player and placed him in handcuffs. It was then Norton says he smelled booze emitting from Pacman.
While Jones was being taken to the gaming office, the NFL star allegedly continued to berate law enforcement officers … saying, “F*ck you,” “You ain’t sh*t” and “You ain’t nothing but a bitch.”
This all came after Jones was arrested in early 2017 after reportedly poking a security guard in the eye and headbutting police officers at the Millenium Hotel who were trying to restrain him and then spat on a jail nurse.
Jones played 12 years in the NFL spending eight seasons with the Bengals, two with the Titans, one with the Cowboys before his final season came in 2018 with the Broncos. He retired from the NFL in 2019.
