Witness: Pacman Jones Was ‘Pretty Far Gone’ at Lounge Before Arrest

Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones was arrested Sunday morning for causing a disturbance at a bar in Cincinnati. He was charged with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct (while intoxicated) and resisting arrest.

Pacman has made himself out to be a victim, saying there’s no reason he should have been locked up. He maintains he wasn’t yelling, using profanity, or resisting arrest.

Jones’ agent, Peter Schaffer, painted Pacman as an even larger victim. “He did not do anything wrong,” Schaffer told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “For him to go through this is a shame. He’s doing the right thing by not taking the law in his own hands.”

Schaffer says Pacman volunteered to take a breathalyzer and that one wasn’t given.

Contrary to what Pacman and his agent would like you to believe, we’re told he was pretty wasted during the night. A witness tells Larry Brown Sports that Pacman, who was with a large group throughout the night, “was pretty far gone.” The witness added that Pacman “was having a good time to say the least.”

Make no mistake about it, Pacman is on a zero tolerance policy from the NFL; it’s in his and his agent’s interest to fight all charges while proclaiming innocence. They’re doing everything possible to make Pacman seem like he was wronged because they’re desperate to protect his livelihood.

Pacman Jones Wears Neck Brace in Mug Shot After Bar Arrest (Picture)

The last time Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones got into trouble, he was mistakenly arrested because of a confusion over identities. It does not appear as if he’ll be as fortunate to avoid trouble this time.

WLWT in Cincinnati (via Pro Football Talk) reports that Pacman Jones was arrested early Sunday morning for causing a disturbance at a local bar. From their report:

According to reports, Jones got into an argument at the bar and when he was asked to leave, witnesses said he was uncooperative.

When police were called, Jones reportedly still refused to leave the bar.

As officers tried to arrest Jones, police said he tried to get out of his handcuffs. The report said two officers were needed to restrain him.

Pacman was one of the most notorious trouble makers in the NFL and missed the entire ’09 season because of it. He ended up signing to play in the CFL and then signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in May last year. He had avoided trouble since then, but it looks like he couldn’t go too long without having another incident. And if you have forgotten his history, this is a good starting point to catch you up. By the way, sweet neck brace, Adam.

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.

Bengals Disgrace Themselves by Signing Pacman Jones, Have Lost Me as a Fan

Three years ago I mocked the Bengals because their players couldn’t stay out of trouble by ranking their players’ arrests based on the crime. After bad boys Chris Henry and Odell Thurman were heavily suspended by the NFL, I figured the Bengals would learn not to harbor poor character guys for fear they wouldn’t be able to make it onto the field. Clearly that was nothing more than a hope, because the Bengals proceeded to take players with major character issues in each of the past three drafts. 2008 pick Jason Shirley was kicked off his college team and arrested for DUI, 2009 pick Bernard Scott had been arrested five times, and 2010 second-round pick Carlos Dunlap got popped for DUI the week of the SEC Championship game. As if that wasn’t enough, the Bengals brought on Cowboys castoff and firearms dealer Tank Johnson who’s managed to stay out of trouble, Larry Johnson who had several assault arrests in Kansas City, and Cedric Benson who worked out nicely for the club.

Cincinnati must have been convinced that they were doing the Lord’s work, because the recent success of the team got to their head and they decided to do the stupidest thing I could imagine this off-season. The Bengals brought in cocaine user and all-around idiot Matt Jones and strip club addict and trouble magnet Pacman Jones for workouts. They signed Jones but were initially unimpressed with Pacman. A few months later, they agreed on a two-year deal with Pacman Jones who’s set to sign this week.

Pacman Jones Signs with Winnipeg Blue Bombers of Canadian League

CFL/Pacman Jones: at long last in his most suitable destination — Canada. With no NFL teams taking a bite of the badboy, Pacman had few choices left if he wanted to play professional football. The latest Jerry Jones bust has signed a one-year deal to play for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL. Pacman says he’s disappointed to be out of the NFL but excited to have a new opportunity. As for Winnipeg, it’s a win-win deal:

“If I was in the same position in the NFL I might have a lot more reservations,” [player personnel director John] Murphy said. “But for me it’s a win-win. I’m smart enough to know that if I’m looking for somebody who can be a playmaker for the second half of our season, there isn’t a better football player who’s not in the NFL, at 25 years old, who’s ready to play football, is going to play with a chip on his shoulder, and is going to bring some fun and excitement to our team, our locker room, our city, and our league.

“And at the same time it’s a business decision as well as football decision. From a marketing standpoint, a business standpoint and a football standpoint, I could go to 100 NFL training camps and every preseason game and more people will hear and know about the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the next two weeks — from the coverage we’ll receive — than in the last 10 years.”

Does that mean they’ll sell more tickets or just become a more popular name amongst players looking for a job? I’m actually wondering why Pacman didn’t wind up in the UFL. Is the UFL trying to play it straight or did the CFL offer more money and Pacman chose to do that? Could this actually be a step in the direction towards an NFL return for the strip club lover?

Pacman Jones Gets Into Fight During Pros vs. Joes TV Show Taping

Pacman Jones WrestlingConsidering no NFL teams have shown interest in him, I’m surprised Pacman Jones hasn’t gone back to TNA wrestling for a second spin as “The Lap Dance Man.” Maybe the paychecks doing the turnbuckle thing weren’t quite cutting it for Pac. Anyway, I guess he’s still trying to stay in football shape, and he’s been doing it by participating in Spike TV’s Pros vs. Joes show (they’re clearly using the term “pro” lightly). Naturally, since trouble and Pacman Jones are like synonyms, you could guess what happened on set. From PFT:

According to Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, who attended one of the sessions, Pacman and one of the “Joes” got into a fight … The hit came from Dan Adams, a former linebacker at Holy Cross who once made 21 tackles in a single game. Pacman had been calling Adams “Waterboy.” A few minutes after the hit, the two started punching each other, and they had to be separated.

“He hit me 10 yards out of bounds, kind of a cheap shot,” Adams said. “I couldn’t sit there and not retaliate. You’ve got to have some pride and dignity.”

Clearly, because nobody would ever want to be outclassed by Pacman Jones. Now I wonder if Roger Goodell will find a way to suspend Pacman for this one. Do you think this could be held against the player formerly known as Adam regarding the personal conduct policy should Pac make a return to the league? I’d say the odds are fair.

Pacman Jones: ‘I Likeded the Strip Clubs’

Pacman Jones has quite the notorious history and might very well be the dumbest football player ever, all respect to Leon Lett. To think this clown actually was enrolled at a university is a joke and just makes West Virginia look all that much worse. The guy’s got a rap sheet thicker than Jon Gruden’s playbook and was suspended by the league for his involvement in a strip club shooting in Las Vegas. Then prior to his disciplinary meeting with the commissioner, he dined at a strip club because he likes the food there. Now in an interview with James Brown on CBS, after being cut by the Cowboys because of new allegations about another strip club shooting incident, Pacman reaffirmed his love of the strip clubs:

Quote 1a of the Year: “Strip clubs are like regular clubs.” I guess so, you know, minus the whole nudity thing.

Quote 1b of the Year: “I likeded the strip clubs.” Doesn’t get much better than that.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m heading off to the Spearmint Rhino on Sepulveda to secure a 1-on-1 interview with Pacman for LBS. Guy’s in Studio City for the weekend — I’m not going to miss out on my shot.
