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.
