LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada judge has sentenced a man to four to 10 years in prison in connection with a 2007 melee at a Las Vegas strip club that also involved Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/rqdGiN ) 32-year-old Arvin Kenti Edwards, of Renton, Wash., was sentenced Thursday for a shooting that wounded two people paralyzed another.

Police say Jones met with Edwards after Jones was ejected from the club after a brawl, and Edwards opened fire moments later.

Authorities say Jones instigated the brawl by throwing money onto a stage then became angry when strippers picked up the bills.

Edwards pleaded guilty in September to attempted murder in an arrangement that means he doesn’t admit guilt but acknowledges prosecutors could prove a case against him.
