Unfortunately, it’s not to gamble and hit the strip clubs. The Las Vegas police, which already has been accused of incompetence, is seeking felony and misdemeanor chargers against Pacman Jones for the triple shooting at a strip club during NBA All-Star Weekend.
Police still don’t know who did the shooting outside the club but want to charge Jones and two friends for the melee that broke out inside the club. You know, the one one where Pacman slammed a stripper’s head against the stage.
Pacman has got more problems though. The major issue during the NFL owners meeting in Arizona this week is the player conduct policy and Jones’s name comes up in every mention of how to discipline players who run afoul of the law or are consistently getting themselves into trouble otherwise.
The Titans are considering dumping Pacman Jones entirely to be rid of the headache and have released this statement:
The club is deeply disturbed that the alleged conduct of one of its players has resulted in felony charges in one state and accusations of felony conduct in another state.
Since the NFL is preparing to introduce a new player conduct policy and since criminal charges and investigations are in progress, comment or speculation would be inappropriate. The club is currently reviewing its options with respect to the player
One of Pacman’s attorneys said that Pacman is very concerned about a possible suspension by the NFL. Maybe he should have though of that sometime between the 9th and 10th time that he was questioned or arrested by police.
