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.
