Default Re: OT- NFL-Titans Pacman Jones Arrested during All star weekend

This happened Friday
FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has drawn the attention of authorities again. This time police arrested a man for threatening him with a pocket knife.

Police arrested Clayton Smith of Spring Hill on Friday night after he pulled the knife on Jones at a bowling alley. Smith "threatened to beat up Mr. Jones and to use the knife on him," said Franklin police detective Stephanie Cisco, who was at the Franklin Family Entertainment Center when the incident occurred around 10:15 p.m.

She said Jones, who has been questioned by police in 10 separate incidents since being drafted in April 2005, wasn't doing anything wrong.

"Mr. Jones was here just trying to be a normal customer, trying to bowl" with several other people, Cisco said.

Smith, 33, was charged with aggravated assault. He was being held Sunday in the Williamson County Jail on $5,000 bond. The detective said Smith previously has been arrested for stalking, unlawful weapon possession and drug offenses.

Jones isn't welcome back at the Titans' headquarters on March 19 when players start their voluntary offseason conditioning program, according to coach Jeff Fisher.

Fisher said Friday that Jones, who was questioned by police after a triple shooting at a Las Vegas strip club Feb. 19, failed to inform team officials about two arrests in Fayette County, Ga., last year. That included one related to a search for drugs at the home Jones bought for his mother.

Jones' attorneys Worrick Robinson and Manny Arora said on a local radio station Friday morning that they didn't expect Jones to be charged in the Las Vegas incident, but acknowledged that their client too often is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"If he doesn't commit to changing it, at some point it's going to be too much," Arora said. "It may already be there to some extent."

Fisher and the team's chief operating officer met with Jones' lawyers at the attorneys' request earlier Friday for what Fisher characterized as an information-gathering meeting.

The coach said the Titans are still gathering their own information before deciding whether to keep Jones on the roster or to release him. He said Jones must be cleared of legal problems before he can report back with the team.
