DA in Vegas eyeing 'Pacman' case after Ohio arrest
Monday, July 11, 2011
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The district attorney in Las Vegas says he'll review police reports of NFL football player Adam "Pacman" Jones' weekend arrest before deciding whether to ask a judge to jail Jones for violating a probation stay-out-of-trouble order.
Clark County District Attorney David Roger tells The Associated Press it could be weeks before he decides whether to seek jailing Jones for up to a year.
The 27-year-old Jones plays for the Cincinnati Bengals. He was arrested early Sunday at a Cincinnati bar on charges of resisting arrest and misdemeanor disorderly conduct while intoxicated.
Jones's lawyer in Las Vegas, Robert Langford, says he thinks charges against his client will be dropped.
Jones was sentenced to one year of probation in February for his role in a 2007 strip club melee in Las Vegas.
