Agent: Pacman pleased arrest made in case

The attorney and agent for suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones said Saturday that he is pleased an arrest has been made in the triple-shooting case in Las Vegas where Jones was in attendance on Feb. 19, 2007.

On Friday evening, Las Vegas police charged Arvin Kenti Edwards, 29, of Renton, Wash., with three counts of attempted murder in the triple-shooting that occurred outside the Minxx Gentleman’s Club in Las Vegas that left security guard Tom Urbanski paralyzed from the waist down.

“We have cooperated with the authorities there in every way, and we are pleased that, if they have the right man in custody, that the case can move forward and that we can move forward with some sort of normalcy in our lives,” Jones’ agent Manny Arora said.

Jones had originally been charged with two felony counts of coercion for allegedly inciting the fight inside the club, but pleaded no contest to a gross misdemeanor count of conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct in December.

Two other co-defendants with Jones, Robert Reid and Sadia Morrison, also accepted plea agreements in the case.

Jones has maintained all along that he had no connection whatsoever to the shooter.

Edwards was already in custody in Yakima, Wash., on unrelated domestic assault charges when he was charged with the shootings in Las Vegas.

Jones, meanwhile, is still trying to reignite his football career after serving a one-year suspension. He is still likely to be traded to the Dallas Cowboys, though the talks have been on hold after the Cowboys raised the offer last week after long negotiations at the NFL owners meetings two weeks ago.
