Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Adam “Pacman” Jones is in trouble with the law again. This time he is being charged with assaulting three people including a cop and a nurse.
According to various news outlets, Pacman Jones appeared to be “doing the most.”
Jones, 33, was booked at 12:25 a.m. local time and is scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m., so details are scarce until then. But police were called to the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Cincinnati, and things allegedly escalated from there.
WLWT-TV reports that Jones is accused of beating on a hotel room door while screaming and swearing, and pushing and poking someone in the eye. FOX19 reports that Jones is accused of kicking and headbutting an officer while refusing to enter a police car
At the Hamilton County Justice Center, Jones is accused of spitting on a nurse on the jail’s medical staff.
Poking somebody in the eye is misdemeanor assault. Banging on the door and cursing, that’s just a disorderly conduct charge. Even after allegedly kicking and headbutting a cop, he’s only getting charged with obstructing official police business.
But spitting on a nurse or as the law calls it now, “harassment with a bodily substance?” That’s a felony, brother.
This is not Pacman’s first run in with the law. He has been involved in multiple nightclub shootings and fights. His behavior got him suspended for the entire 2007 NFL season and part of the 2008 season. But after being reinstated, he’s kept out of trouble for the most part, raising most of his hell on the football field.
Details are still emerging about this case.
