Sus­pended Pac­man tears up over sup­port

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS - THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

CINCIN­NATI — Cor­ner­back Adam (Pac­man) Jones ac­cepted his onegame sus­pen­sion for an off-sea­son mis­de­meanour con­vic­tion, and he got emo­tional Thurs­day over the un­wa­ver­ing sup­port he’s re­ceived from Ben­gals owner Mike Brown.

Jones is sus­pended by the NFL for the sea­son opener as a re­sult of his con­fronta­tion with a ho­tel se­cu­rity em­ployee and an ob­scen­ity-filled tirade against ar­rest­ing po­lice of­fi­cers. He pleaded guilty to a mis­de­meanour charge as part of an agree­ment, and other charges were dropped.

Brown un­wa­ver­ingly de­fended Jones dur­ing in­ter­views at the team’s an­nual pre-sea­son lunch on Tues­day, say­ing the cor­ner­back in­spires him.

“Words can’t ex­plain,” Jones said. “I can’t ex­plain. I’m just deep from my heart that I have some­body that un­der­stands me as a per­son and that’s not quick to judge.”

Tear­ing up, he said, “See you all,” and he walked away.
