Pacman, back in handcuffs


Since completing a one-year suspension for multiple brushes with the law, cornerback Pacman Jones largely has stayed out of trouble. But for a minor incident with the man hired to babysit him in Big D (which got him suspended again but not arrested) and a case of mistaken identity during the 2010 season, Pacman has not been back in trouble.

Until now.

The folks at WLWT report that Jones, who now plays for the Bengals, was arrested early Sunday at a Cincinnati bar.

He reportedly was intoxicated and disruptive. He allegedly got into an argument, and he allegedly was uncooperative when asked to leave.

As Jones was being arrested, he reportedly struggled to get out of the handcuffs. Ultimately, two officers were required to restrain him.

With the league taking the position (ridiculous as it may be) that the personal conduct policy applies even though the players are currently locked out, it’ll be interesting to see how Pacman’s latest legal entanglement impact his career, given his history.

Jones, the sixth overall pick in the 2005 draft, has played for the Titans, Cowboys, and Bengals. Despite a few guilty pleas and plenty of arrests, he has never been sentenced to jail. If he remains on probation for any of his past legal issues, the latest incident could create a separate problem for Pacman.
