Posting Pacman Jones stories are becoming increasingly tedious, so I have included all the background on his story at the bottom of the post so I can get straight to the juicy point. From NewsChannel 5 in Nashville, Tennessee we have perhaps the most amazing twist to the Pacman Jones saga.
In one of the greater ironies in life, convicted drug dealer and friend of Pacman, Darryl Moore, who made his living by selling illegal products on a daily basis, had enough sense to know that his friend Pacman Jones was on the wrong path. Here are some of the incredible quotes (made by the convicted drug dealer about Pacman) from a wiretap obtained by NewsChannel 5:
“We gotta slow down, man. We gotta get him focused on football, man. He’s focused on too much other s****,”….”You know, I was talkin’ to him the other day about smokin’, and he was like man, if I didn’t smoke I couldn’t take all the stress that I’m dealing with right now,’”…”Fisher’s being as patient as a m*****f***** as he can. Fisher gotta win. Fisher trying to win…He ain’t putting up with that s***,”…”He gotta concentrate on season…that ******* drug test coming up,” he said. “We telling him he needed 33 days before he took his ******* test; dry-out, and he didn’t…that’s let me know right there that he ain’t taking his ****** job serious.”

It appears as if Pacman Jones has a strong involvement in the shooting at a strip club in Las Vegas last week in which three people were wounded, one of whom was paralyzed (you can visit ESPN 760 to listen to Evan Cohen’s interview with the parents of one of the shooting victims). Before that, Pacman had a court case dismissed in which he was accused of spitting on a woman at a club. During that same court session, Pacman said he had learned his lesson and was done with trouble. Previously, Pacman had other trouble at clubs and was in court on public drunkenness and disorderly conduct charges. Additionally, Pacman’s ties to a drug dealer led to his car getting confiscated — which he eventually bought back. John Czarnecki of Foxsports.com said in his blog that the Titans were warned about Pacman’s troubles and still drafted him (via NFL Fanhouse). The Tennessean suggests that it will be difficult to prove that Pacman was criminally involved in the Las Vegas shooting.
