Pacman Jones has been charged with assault for punching a woman at a bar in Cincinnati last week, but the Bengals cornerback is claiming that he acted in self-defense.
ESPN 1530 in Cincinnati obtained security footage of the incident, which allows us to review what happened.
It’s hard to tell exactly what was going on, but it looks like Pacman was walking along the sidewalk next to the bar’s outdoor patio. He stops to talk to a few people seated on the patio. As he’s talking with them, a woman who was standing against the wall of the bar approaches him and they begin to talk (or argue). Pacman leans over the rail to talk with the woman and points his finger at her. The woman then reaches out and sticks her beer bottle in Pacman’s face, almost like she wanted to pour it on him (screencap below).
