Just a quick taste of this "quality" citizen of the NFL community ...
10/2003: Jones was sentenced to one year in jail following a bar fight while he was a student at West Virginia University, but the sentence was suspended and he was placed on two years probation. His probation was scheduled to end on Thursday.
4/27/05: Adam "Pacman" Jones was at Club Blaze in Conley, Ga., around 3 a.m. ET on April 27 when officers responded to a fight involving two women. Andrea Akins, a supervisor at the club, told police she was punched in the mouth by a woman who was with Jones. But she later told police the woman "had nothing to do with the altercation," a police report said.
Both women were handcuffed, but were released without any arrests.
7/13/05: The Tennessee Titans' top draft pick, Adam "Pacman" Jones, was arrested Wednesday on charges of assault and felony vandalism stemming from a nightclub altercation. Jones surrendered to Nashville police at Titans headquarters Wednesday morning. Jones was in handcuffs, a white T-shirt and light blue exercise pants when he appeared smiling before a night court commissioner, who set bond at $7,000. The charges included one felony vandalism charge and two misdemeanor counts of assault.
9/5/05: The annual Nashville Sports Council Kickoff Luncheon was held at the Renaissance Hotel. Among the 800 guest was none other than Pacman Jones ... later that evening Jones was counseled for a loud verbal tantrum when he was told to wait in line for his vehicle. He also refused to pay for any valet services used that evening.
10/25/05: In a petition filed by the state, it was alleged that Jones has not made regular and sufficient contact with his probation officer and that he did not report his July arrest in Nashville in a timely fashion.
Judge Robert Stone in Morgantown granted the probation extension of 90 days, though the state requested for it to be extended up to a year.
4/11/06: Nine people were arrested on suspicion of having roles in two major drug rings that trafficked cocaine and marijuana in Sumner and Davidson counties, including a Nashville man with possible ties to Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones, authorities said yesterday.
Officers from Davidson and Sumner counties seized 1,653 pounds of marijuana, 128 pounds of cocaine, more than 20 vehicles and $608,000, police said.
4/18/06: Police say Pacman was one of 12 or more people that gathered at a gas station in Nashville when a fight broke out and gunshots were fired.
A surveillance camera shows that Pacman was identified as being in the crowd and he confirmed that fact to police.
8/23/06: Jones was also accused of simple assault by Toya Garth, who said Jones spit in her face. Garth said Jones "got very close to her and spit in her face, and which point she stated she spit back in his face,'' according to statement taken by police.
After Jones was asked to leave, police said he began yelling profanities and was arrested by Officer Matt Baldwin.
"Mr. Jones was given several opportunities to leave, he just wouldn't do it,'' Lt. Alvin Baird said. "As he was leaving he hung out the passenger side of the vehicle and began yelling profanities at the security at Sweetwater Saloon, and he put us in a place where we had to do something. Jones was also said to have bloodshot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol.
He was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
I guess I'm just getting old. But I can remember when kids looked up to athletes who were role models and gods to us.
I can remember following the career of Al Kaline, long time rightfielder of the Tigers. About 1960 he was offered the team's first hundred thousand dollar contract; he turned it down. He would only accept ninety thousand because the team wasn't winning.
Look what we have today.
Tennessee has Jones, the Cowboys have Owens.
Both jerks living in a fantasy world.
At least TO isn't involved with drugs, strippers and the gansta lifestyle ...
Our local shrink-on-call for the Tennessean said Jones has some anger-management issues.
He has proven that he can not abide by the rules of his probation, so they sentence him to more probation. No wonder he doesn't take it seriously.
I don't know, Michael Irvin is a good friend of TO's. So TO is pretty close to that by associateion.
Irvin was certainly guilty of much that was reported about him. Much like Sanders, his drug of choice was sex, and used drugs to get the sex.
AFAIK, Irvin has turned his life around and is now clean. Not perfect, but clean.
What we know about TO is from media reports so I am inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt regarding his lifestyle. His first impressions here in Dallas give me no reason to want him as a neighbor.
...de white man jus be keepin' a brother down and sh!t...
Two reasons for this,
1) High School and College Coaches (and AAU) can make a lot of money off talented players. Teenagers know this and will take full advantage of the situation. High Schoolers on TV, Colleges making millions in football, grown men going fanboy on 18-22 year olds
2) The MSM back then used to cover for the players, now they build them up to insane levels so they can tear them down.
I think we should move towards the English soccer league method for football and basketball. Turn them pro at 14, the coaches are hired by the pro teams with the job to turn these kids into good pros.
All the college teams become pro teams. Free agents, etc. The top three teams in the division will be promoted to the NFL level, the bottom 3 NFL teams dropped to the "College" level.
A new one at Club Mystic in downtown Nashville on 10/26/2006!
"A Metro Police detective on Saturday cited Titans cornerback Pacman Jones, charging him with misdemeanor assault, and the incident puts Jones' availability for today's game against the Texans in doubt.
Jones is accused of spitting in the face of a female Tennessee State student after an argument at a nightclub Thursday morning."
A mind like a trap, eh?
I was just listening to Mike and The Mad Dog sports radio when a regular called called in with a relative who was paralyzed from the waist down in the PacMan Jones shooting, he was a bouncer at the club.
Upon leaving the club earlier in the night with a fellow thug PacMan told the OTHER boucer that he would be dead before the night is over. Apparently the 2 thugs came back and went Wild West City trying to make good on the promise to kill the bouncer.
Bumping my comment from the other thread so people can see this thugs background.
Time to add another page.
