Adam “Pac Man” Jones is no stranger to trouble as his football career as a whole was marred with off-the-field issues. His latest situation comes in retirement as he’s now been sentenced to a 30-day jail sentence for knocking out and then beating a man unconscious.
Nothing has changed with Pac Man who was also filmed in 2018 getting into it with a guy in an airport as his baby’s mother desperately tried to intervene.
This most recent incident took place at a bar in Cincinnati, back in February of this year. The original sentence was 180-days but 150 of the days were suspended.
Pacman will also be sentenced to nine months probation, with no alcohol consumption while having to follow a 9PM curfew.
A lover of the nightlife, Jones has had multiple disorderly conduct and assault charges. His 2007 incident at a Las Vegas nightclub left a bouncer paralyzed and a dancer at the the club was also assaulted.
Back then, Jones was at the height of his popularity and used to frequent various strip clubs carrying large trash bags of singles. As a result of the incident Jones’ was suspended for an entire 2007 season and part of the 2008 season as well. He had a civil suit of $11 million levied against him, which he had to pay.
Pulled over by police time after time throughout his career, he once told an officer,
“I hope you die tomorrow.”
Jones Was A Talented Player, But His Troubles Are What Most Remember
Jones never really lived up to expectations, considering how high he was drafted by the Tennessee Titans.
A good cornerback and even better returner, the stigma surrounding Jones will always be about his off-the-field-issues.
Jones was selected No.6 overall and showed the talent of a Top 10 pick in his first two seasons with 4 interceptions and 23 passes defended. Jones was also an Uber talented kick and punt returner who had four return touchdowns while also gaining 1,618 yards on kick returns and 712 on punt returns.
