Ex-NFL star Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones arrested in alleged beatdown


Troubled former NFL star Adam “Pacman” Jones was arrested once again early Monday — accused of kicking and punching someone unconscious, according to court records.

The 37-year-old retired Cincinnati Bengals cornerback was arrested in Hamilton County, Ohio, just before 2 a.m., online records show.

Jones was charged with misdemeanor assault and is due to face a judge Monday. He appears set for release after already posting 10 percent of a $25,000 bond, the records show.

The former star is accused of punching and kicking a man named Kevin Straits in the head until he was unconscious, according to court documents obtained by the Cincinnati Enquirer. No other details were immediately available.

Before his retirement in 2019, Jones’ 12-year career was repeatedly marred by trouble with the law.

He missed the entire 2007 season after a shooting incident in Las Vegas, and was arrested in 2017 for allegedly “pushing and poking (a security guard) in the eye” outside a hotel in Cincinnati.

Just before his retirement, he was also busted for allegedly threatening cops after he was accused of cheating at an Indiana casino. He spent about two weeks in jail on the charges.

He also hit headlines in 2018 for a wild caught-on-camera brawl with an airline employee.
