Pacman Jones ordered to pay over $11 million in damages for strip club shooting
Now that he’s going by the name Adam Jones, speaking to rookies at the NFL symposium, and not getting into as much trouble, it’s easy to forget what a bad boy Pacman Jones once was.
Several years ago Pacman was involved in a shooting at Minxx strip club in Las Vegas, Nevada that had three victims and left one person paralyzed from the waist down. Pacman allegedly created the madness when he made it rain at the club and got into a mixup with a stripper.
According to TMZ, a Nevada jury ruled on Friday that Pacman was responsible for the shooting, and they ordered him to pay $11.65 million to three different victims.
Security guard Thomas Urbanski, who was paralyzed from the waist down after being shot, got $9.6 million. The other security guard who was shot, Aaron Cudworth, was awarded $1.3 million in damages. Urbanski’s wife sued for loss of marital relations and won $750k.
Pacman likely doesn’t have that kind of money, so it remains to be seen how things will be worked out, but it’s safe to say he’ll be owing big money in the future.
