Police Apologize to Pacman Jones After Mistakenly Arresting Him
Nothing like adding another chapter to the many adventures of Adam “Pacman” Jones. Believe it or not, Jones actually did nothing wrong during his most recent run-in with police officers after the Bengals-Bucs game on Sunday. Believe me, I wouldn’t be buying it if the Cincinnati Police weren’t selling it.
As SbB live points out, Cincinnati Police admitted on Tuesday that they arrested and put Pacman Jones in handcuffs by mistake on Sunday. Apparently, Jones was in a turn only lane and started going straight which caused his car to almost hit another. In order to avoid a crash, he swerved onto the sidewalk and caused a pedestrian to fall. No one was injured but it sounds like a bonehead driving maneuver from Pacman if the report is accurate.
A detail cop ran over to where it all happened and thought there had been an accident, so she ran Pacman’s license and found a warrant out for a man by the name of Adam Jones. After she handcuffed Pacman, the dispatcher let the officer know that it was not the Jones who plays for the Bengals.
The police have since personally apologized to Pacman and Marvin Lewis for the mistake. It’s amazing how trouble just seems to follow some people whether they’re at fault or not. I’m sure the swarm of people who gathered around a handcuffed Pacman were thinking “here we go again.” Fortunately for the Bengals, their list of arrests will stay where it was (around a few hundred) for the time being.
