Former NFL cornerback and return specialist Adam Jones has been part of a tussle, but this time away from the field.
Jones, also known by his nickname ‘Pacman’ who predominantly played for Cincinnati Bengals, was recently involved in a bar brawl and has been arrested in Hamilton County.
In an exclusive video footage obtained by TMZ, several people are seen in a brawl taking place inside a bar, including Jones who got into an altercation with a bouncer and another person. Check it out below-
A witness present at the sport reported that Jones “pushed his way back in and it started getting aggressive” after the other person verbally agitated him and the player “knocked the security guy out then proceeded to kick the guy in the head multiple times.”
I did what I needed to do: Adam Jones clears up the incident
As Adam Jones was leaving the bar in his Rolls Royce, he was apprehended by the police on the spot over charges of misdemeanor assault and will be facing a Hamilton County judge on Monday morning.
After he was bailed, Jones went onto The Pat McAfee show to elaborate on the incident, claiming that it was a brawl between bouncers of competitor clubs and he was trying to stop the fight.
“When I turned around they [were] already on the floor so I separated them,” Jones asserted on the show, “that’s when punches, chairs, whatever they was throwing. I did what I needed to do.”
“I’m done fighting, bro, unless anyone wanna pay me,” the 37-year-old, who has also enjoyed a short stint as a professional wrestler for TNA, stated, while also adding that he was not drunk during the brawl.
A 2005 first round draft pick, Jones made his NFL debut for Tennessee Titans. After a short stint with the Dallas Cowboys, the player went to join Bengals in 2010 and became permanent until 2017. The next year, he retired at Denver Broncos.
