Titans’ Jones Faces Charges

- — From News Services

Suspended NFL player Adam “Pacman” Jones will face two felony charges in a strip club melee that preceded a triple shooting in February inside the Minxx club, Las Vegas police said in a statement.

Since Jones was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in April 2005, he has been involved in 11 police investigat­ions, including efforts by Atlanta police to question him about a shooting early Monday after a fight at an Atlanta strip club. He has been arrested five times in a little more than two years. He has not been convicted of any crimes.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello did not say yesterday whether the Las Vegas charges would affect Jones’s suspension for the upcoming NFL season.

Jones agreed this month not to appeal the suspension, and officials said Jones had a chance to be reinstated after 10 games if he adhered to team restrictio­ns and had no further “adverse involvemen­t with law enforcemen­t.” Missing the entire season would cost Jones his salary of nearly $1.3 million.

Arrest warrants were issued for Jones, Robert “Big Rob” Reid of Carson, Calif., and Sadia Morrison of New York, an aide to Clark County District Attorney David Roger said.

Jones, 23, faces two counts of felony coercion stemming from allegation­s he bit a bar bouncer on the ankle and threatened to kill club employees, according to a criminal complaint filed in Las Vegas Justice Court.
