Former NFL player Adam “Pacman” Jones saw his career repeatedly derailed by off-the-field incidents during his time in the league, and the man who’s struggled to stay out of trouble since retiring has once again ended up in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons.

Jones spent more than a decade playing as a defensive back for the Titans, Cowboys, Bengals, and Broncos, but his career was marred by a ton of legal incidents—including a wild melee at a strip club in Las Vegas that led to him being suspended for the entirety of the 2007 campaign.

That’s really just the tip of the iceberg for someone who once decided to fight his own bodyguard, was detained for supposedly cheating at a casino, and ended up in handcuffs yet again for allegedly beating someone until they were unconscious in a bar fight in 2021.

You may also remember the time he knocked out an Atlanta airport employee who made the ill-fated decision to throw hands with him in 2018, and while Shaquille O’Neal asserts Jones didn’t do anything wrong in that situation, he’s in hot water yet again for another incident that unfolded while he was flying.

According to TMZ, Jones was arrested yet again on Monday morning after police at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport were called to deal with an “unruly passenger” in the form of the retired RB who was detained and charged with “alcohol intoxication, disorderly conduct and terroristic threatening.”

As the outlet notes, Jones had filmed himself sharing his thoughts on the matchup between the Bengals and the Browns while walking through the airport shortly before news of his arrest broke.

On Monday morning, Adam Clements of WKRC caught up with Jones after he was released from jail, and the wide receiver described the charges as “b******” while sharing his side of the story.

I guess we’ll just have to see how this pans out.
