Woman accuses Pacman of striking her

Tuesday, January 15, 2008 at 12:02pm

Suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is accused of striking a woman in a north Atlanta strip club in the early morning hours of Jan. 3.

The woman, an Atlanta defense attorney named Wanda Jackson, filed a report with Atlanta police against Jones, whom she accused of striking her in the Body Tap Strip Club around 3 a.m. on the day in question.

Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for a string of off-field incidents that included not reporting a pair of arrests in Georgia from 2006. Jones was also in a Las Vegas strip club last Feb. 19 where three people were shot outside the club. Jones, who was charged with two counts of felony coercion, eventually pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct.

According to the report, Jones and Jackson, whom the report said is handling a divorce case apparently involving the Titans football player, began arguing in the club. Jackson alleges that Jones punched her in the left eye, causing a bruise.

According to the police report, Jones is accused of assault and battery and, according to a WSB television report, Jackson has filed for the issuance of an arrest warrant in Fulton County Magistrate Court. That will be heard on Feb. 8 before a magistrate, who will determine whether a warrant will be issued for Jones’ arrest.

The latest incident brings the number of times Jones has been involved in an investigation or questioned by police to 12 since the Titans spent the sixth overall pick on him in the 2005 NFL Draft.

Jones still has one charge pending in Georgia stemming from a 2006 felony obstruction of an officer case, as well as a public drunkenness charge in Murfreesboro that is scheduled to be revisited on Jan. 31.

Also, Jones is on probation from his no contest plea agreement in the Las Vegas case. He also faces civil litigation from all three shooting victims in the case, including Minxx Gentleman’s Club security guard Tom Urbanski, who is paralyzed from the waist down as a result of a bullet striking him. Although Jones was accused in that matter of inciting the fight inside the club that eventually led to the shooting, no link was ever made between him and the shooter, who remains at large.

Jones’ case for reinstatement is scheduled to be reviewed by Goodell after the Pro Bowl.

Greg Aiello, senior vice president of public relations for the NFL, when asked about the latest matter involving Jones, only reiterated that, “his status will be reviewed after the season.”

Efforts to reach Jackson or Jones’ attorneys Manny Arora and Worrick Robinson were unsuccessful.

A lawyer in a strip joint? “That boy ain’t got no luck!” Or brains!!!!

Hey, Pacman, I've got a little advice for you that apparently no one else is giving you, "STAY OUT OF STRIP CLUBS AND NIGHT CLUBS, ESPECIALLY AFTER HOURS". You can't get into trouble and be accused of anything if you just stay out of these types of establishments.

By: BuckyDent on 12/31/69 at 6:00

Pacman has been given that advice many times. He must be the stupidest person alive on earth.

By: revo-lou on 12/31/69 at 6:00

Naw, he just loves the “ladies”. But, it would appear that they don’t like him too much, if he is trolling at strip clubs!!!!

The screen writers that are on strike in tinseltown couldn't come up with a bigger soap opera type script than what Adam manages in real life. Maybe a sequel to Brewster's Millions should be made starring Adam Jones as the man who can squander away millions of dollars and a hall of fame career faster than anyone alive.

This guy just doesn't get it! If the latest is true, I don't see him getting out of it this time without going to prison. He has some serious issues. See ya!

The question comes to mind "What on earth is a female attorney doing in a boobie bar at 3am?". This story will end up being even stranger than it now appears, I think. But I concur with the opinion that anyone hitting an attorney in a strip club is definitely worthy of an appearance in an episode of "America's Dumbest Criminals".

So, Pacman's gettin' divorced? Does the article really say that?

By: Time for Truth on 12/31/69 at 6:00

There goes the rest of his fortune, although I think he'll need a new attorney....

This guy needs to do some jail time before he kills someone.

By: Time for Truth on 12/31/69 at 6:00

I just re-read and apparently the divorce case "involves" him. I don't even know that he's married.

Hope for HIS sake as a person that this is not true. Hope for the TITANS sake that all the talk lately about the entire locker room wanting him back on the team won't influence Bud's call on whether or not to keep him or cut ties with him.

"in the Body Tap Strip Club" ... What did she expect to happen to her in the Body Tap? She just got her body tapped, that's all. And I've wanted to tap just about every lawyer I've seen. I give Pacman a pass on this one.

Good one, cdenney!

Gotta love the stupid posters, don’t you? They bring so much to the table.

I've said this many many times, PacMan Jones is GAY because he is always hitting women and always surrounded by men. He's from Atlanta also, which is a good indication that he's gay. I've never heard of him getting into a fight with another man. He has ALL the signs of being a gay man on the DL.

This is a lot of posts for an article listed later in the day (though few of any substance), and so it seems to be of interest to many good people in addition to myself; "Pack Man Battered a woman, in a strip club".Let me say a lot about this; firstly that I have not been in a "strip club" in many years. I have seen a guy get bounced for "abusing" a stripper, in a club, and it was not a freind of mine.Nextly I have never actually "slugged" a female though i have seen some who truly deserved it (and some that did receive it).There are some scum bags in tennessee who want to insinuate that i would or did hit some gal, though i did not and have never been formally accused nor charged with it; nor of any kind of abuse or battery; (the "businessmen" I mention just want to protect oligarchy & commit extortion, in ragard to the insinuation of the matter).What does it mean when some supposedly normal people want to insinuate that a particular man has been a "contestant in a tough-man contest" (whether he has or not), and also that the man has a problem with his "bowels" and is a suspect in some undislosed crime, (while some of the same Insinuators inquisitors are building jails and ruining the state penitentiary system)?To me it seems a plan to get the man in jail, beat him in to submission, and then violate his "bowels"; not that i'm paranoid, nor nothin (nor homosexual, nor criminal).

Wake up Bud-this guy is a loser and will drag the Titans down with him

Tharon - uh, I'm not sure what you just said, but it scared the h..l outta' me.

Does anyone ever wonder what is going on inside Pacmans head as he ponders events of the moment. Would you not think that he would be getting an inkling that civilization right or wrong works a lot differently away from the ghetto? What about his curriculum at West Virginia? I would love to know his courses and his instructors. I cannot imagine what West Virginia went through to find him a curriculum that he could be comfortable with.

TITAN1, this is yo' booyyyeeee Pacman. You defended Pac all year, saying he should be proven guilty in court. Are you sticking to your guns saying we should reserve judgment until the court system decides, or are you finally getting on baord. Better late than never I suppose. Hey TITAN1, you still the king of your Second and Demonbreun trailer park tailgate party?
