Adam “Pacman” Jones, cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys and general knucklehead, has had another incident. Early Wednesday morning in an upscale Dallas hotel following a screening of Max Payne, Jones reportedly got into a physical altercation with an off-duty police officer who was hired by the Cowboys as security for the troubled player.
CBS 11 in Dallas/Ft. Worth was the first to report the incident. As of now, no charges have been filed.
According to the report, there was a “violent altercation” in the bathroom with patrons clearly hearing that a fight was taking place. A mirror was broken and Jones, who was intoxicated, reportedly then left without paying his bar tab.
Good stuff, Adam.
Supposedly, Jones was not a guest of the hotel, but merely attending the movie’s opening party. Outside, Jones was perceived to be “clearly agitated.” He then took his shirt off (with a t-shirt under it) and then headed back into the hotel where hotel security broke up the bathroom brawl.
A league source told Profootballtalk.com that the fight started because the security guard mouthed off to Jones’ female companion.
Here’s the real downside for Pacman: the security guard was employed by the team. Which makes him…you guessed it, a team employee. Even though no charges were filed, he could still be subject to discipline under the league’s Personal Conduct Policy. Considering his long list of boneheaded behavior, this could be the end of the line for Pacman.
As of this posting, the Cowboys have no comment as they claim to have no knowledge of the situation.
In other, possibly related news, Jones fired his agent Manny Arora. This is the same agent that stuck by Jones while he screwed up repeatedly.
“Adam and I see things a little bit differently” Arora said. “He’s the boss, and he made this decision.”
Jones had reportedly become irritated in recent weeks with the Cowboys attempts to keep his profile low and keep him out of trouble. The incident Wednesday morning at the hotel and his issues with his agent could possibly be the culmination of his frustrations.
