Pacman Jones was supposed to be walking the straight and narrow. Now the news hits that he was fighting with a member of his own security team.
This bad news because starting corner Terence Newman could miss six weeks because he may need sports hernia surgery according to ESPN.com.
My man Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram is all over this story:
Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is in trouble again.
CBS/Channel 11 first reported Wednesday that Jones was involved in a fight Tuesday night at the Joule Hotel in Dallas, damaging a bathroom.
Police were called to the scene, but no charges were filed.
At least two sources confirmed the incident for the Star-Telegram:
According to the sources, Jones was attending a party hosted by the rapper Ludacris, who is in town shooting a movie with actor Mark Wahlberg.
Jones apparently got in a violent scuffle with his bodyguard, Tommy Jones. According to a source, it’s not the first time Jones and his bodyguard have come to blows.
Tuesday’s altercation came less than two weeks after Jones had been told by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to refrain from going out and to keep a lower profile.
Staying out of social situations that could lead to trouble were part of the stipulations of Adam Jones’ reinstatement to the league after being suspended in 2007 for repeated violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
“It’s in his best interest to keep that profile low,” Jerry Jones said recently.
Coincidentally, news of Jones’ latest incident came the same day NFL commissioner Roger Goodell visited the Cowboys’ Valley Ranch facility.
