Pacman Jones sounds, gulp, innocent

I don't like Pacman Jones. If he moved next door tomorrow morning, my house would be on the market by lunch.

That said, I'm tempted to believe Jones didn't deserve what happened to him outside a bar early Sunday morning in Cincinnati.

Read this for yourself. No need to give you the play-by-play, but the key passage is here, courtesy of Jones' agent, Peter Schaffer:

Jones was out with friends when another female threw a punch at his wife. Jones walked up to police and said he wanted to file charges. According to other witnesses, Jones became upset as the woman who punched his wife started walking away -- while police became more concerned about Jones. After he uttered a few profanities at officers, they arrested him.

If that's the way it went down, Pacman was arrested for trying to do the right thing and losing his temper when his actions went unrewarded.

Let me put it like this: If the agent's version of the story is true, you could substitute "Gregg Doyel" for "Pacman Jones" -- because my reaction would have been similar.

If the agent's version is remotely close to accurate -- and that's a huge "if" -- the police owe Pacman an apology. And Pacman owes the police a lawsuit.

Update (4:02 p.m.): I forgot to mention, Pacman Jones already has been wrongly arrested once by cops in Cincinnati. Happened in October.

Amen LostBoySteve.  I think you said it all.

Doyle might be as stupid as he looks.  I did get a laugh out of the "replace PacMan Jones with Gregg Doyle" comment.

Make it Rain Gregg make it Rain!!!

Although you are failing to bring up the first question mark. Why are adults punching each other? Maybe he is innocent but it just seems there are certain people who are always in the mix, always asking for trouble, always in the wrong place. I don't recall my wife and I ever being in a situation where another woman is punching her.

Pacman is such a nice,easy going ,mellow,upstanding man that WVU told him to leave and not come back.Rich Rod would sell his soul to win a football game and he told Pacman to leave.He's on super secret probation for a reason.He and the Bengals deserve each other and Im sure Mike Brown will come riding in on a white horse to save him.

Innocent or guilty, if I had a history with police like Pacman, I would learn to watch it. Celebrate my wife's birthday, have a good time, home by midnight. Nothing good happens after 2 a.m.

Wow, up north it seems grade school was optional. I love when people make fun of someone and 'correct' them, yet are incorrect. Keep it coming man! I mean, you had enough time to think about it while you were posting and you still were wrong.

Doyel Strikes Again

I love Doyel's Articles. Some thinking outside of the box and piss off most ppl that actually take time to write comments on articles (usually the worst kind of sports fan, and person in general).... The only person more unrealiable then Pacman Jones is the Cincinnait Police, they are terrible. Sadly I feel that Pacman probably is innocent in this.

This may well be the STUPIDEST blog post I've ever read. Even with the "HUGE IF" in there....that's like saying "If OJ Simpson is telling the truth..." C'mon man!

1. Note in the agent's statement that he's "out with friends" -- he's IN A BAR. He should not be ANYWHERE within 1000 feet of a bar considering what's gone down. His making more than 99% of the US population depends on him NEVER BEING IN TROUBLE AGAIN...yet he's out at least someone who was drinking alcohol.

2. Some random woman just decided to punch his wife in the face?!?!?! I've been around a LOT of women and dude, it really does take two to tango. I'm not buying this was a walkby punching.

3. Even his AGENT is admitting he "uttered a few profanities" --- love how that's spun as if PACMAN is muttering under his breath or something. GIVE ME A BREAK.  He's screaming and yelling swear words at cops. When in doubt...walk away. Even when not in doubt but on your 27th strike with the NFL....WALK AWAY.
