Adam “Pacman” Jones will have to pay up for his involvement in a 2007 strip club melee. As of Friday (June 15), the NFL star was ordered to shell out $11.6 million in damages to victims hurt during the altercation, that started as a fist fight and erupted in gun violence.
A Nevada jury found him responsible for the incident, despite the fact that he was not the shooter. Security guards Aaron Cudworth and Thomas Urbanski filed suit against Jones, and were awarded the hefty sum. Of the $11.6 million, Cudworth will get $1.3 million, while Urbanski—who was left paralyzed—will receive $9.6 million. His wife also sued Jones and was awarded $750,000.
Following the incident, Jones pleaded not guilty to felony charges, and received 1-year probation, plus 200 hours of community service.
