RISING SUN, Ind. – NFL football player Pacman Jones (whose real name is Adam) has been known for being able to supply a good quote during his career. Though, it appears the former ball player may have saved his most caustic and racist quotes for an offseason trip to the casino.
Jones was arrested on February 27th during an altercation with police at an Indiana casino. However, what he said to the arresting officers after they tackled him while trying to escape, is making even more headlines, according to TMZ Sports.
Contact with Jones began when officials say Indiana Gaming Commission Enforcement agents responded after he (Jones) was suspected of “capping bets,” which is shoptalk for adding more chips to a bet after you know the outcome of the game.
As a result, Jones didn’t take kindly to the allegations. Moreover, he told several officials, “F*** you” … while moving his hands in a threatening manner and gesturing with his middle finger, according to the court docs.
During the altercation, IGCE agent Christopher Norton says Jones turned to another IGCE agent and told him, “I will kill you … I will whoop your ass.”
Norton says Jones continued to act in a threatening manner, so he subdued the NFL player and placed him in handcuffs. It was then Norton says he smelled booze emitting from Jones.
During the entanglement, Jones continued to verbally harass the arresting officers as he was led away. However, according to TMZ, things were about to get even crazier.
While the agents were handing Jones over to the Ohio County Sheriff’s Dept., Jones managed to break free and tried to make a run for it. However, officers ultimately subdued him.
After he was recaptured, Jones continued to swear at the cops. The most vulgar quotes attributed to Jones include, “F*** you,’ ‘Suck my d***” and “You’re a bunch of crackers.”
Yet another officer claims Jones also said, “Suck my d***, n***er.”
Jones was hit with a litany of charges stemming from this incident, “including felony intimidation and felony battery against an officer.
“The other charges, all misdemeanors, include cheating at gambling, resisting law enforcement and public intoxication.”
The incident is similar to a 2017 arrest at a Hyatt hotel — when Jones was captured on video telling an officer to “suck my d***” and “I hope you die.”
Jones remains unsigned after getting released from the Denver Broncos in November. The 14-year veteran is well-traveled in the league, having played for Tennessee, Dallas, Cincinnati, and Denver. He has reportedly made close to 40 million during his NFL career.
