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.

Gregg Doyel admits he is Stupid

guys you are missing the point bashing Greggie this time. He admitted he is stupid enough to think he should curse at and harass police officers. Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery. Greggie should be applauded for being dumb enough to admit he is this stupid.

Hey Goat, you prolly also think that Clinton was only trying to moisten his cigar. Give me a break, there are more thug players than there are bad cops. Stop with the conspiracy BS.

Pacman Jones has a reputation that in some ways actually makes it easier to believe that he is innocent in this instance. The reason for this is because of his reputation. I would not find it hard to believe that if Pacman Jones went to a cop with even a reasonable request he would be fairly prone to being harassed by the cop because, hey, if the cop knows it is Pacman Jones and know his reputation then they know that they have an easy way to get instant publicity for themselves by being a d*ck to Pacman and then arresting him. Very believable as well, cops can be major league d*cks that abuse their petty power. Something is even fishier if you read the actual story. They arrested him for disorderly conduct while intoxicated, yet Pacman Jones offered to give the officers a breathalyzer test and they wouldn't give it to him. Very easy to believe that this is a case of abusive cops trying to get in the headlines by arresting Pacman Jones.

Is this is really the same idiot that just wrote a column about how no one else in the world has gay friends and most the world is homophobes and someday we will all get it?! (Jackson post) Now he gets part of a story about a trouble maker who plays football and we are to believe after all the problems 'check my pac man' has been through he is the innocent one? What a joke, dude you are embarassing yourself. You actually quoted his agent? REALLY?! Get your priorities 'straight' you goof.

Right, some lady throws a punch at his wife, out of the blue, for no reason. Sure. Then the chivalrous Pac-Man just wants the offender arrested. Then I suppose he curses out the cops when they don't move fast enough to arrest this woman? Right, all sounds perfectly plausible and the Jones were just standing there minding their own business. Poor victims in this whole sordid affair.

I don't know if he is or isn't innocent, but surely something is being left out of the story.  Otherwise I'm supposed to believe that some random woman came up and threw a punch at Pacman's wife with no provocation.  Sounds kind of fishy to me, and considering the party involved I find it difficult to believe he was a complete angel in the evening's festivities.

95 percent chance he's innocent. 1) This is it for Adam. He knows one more issue and his career is over. 2) His attitude, demeanor and approach to the game is a sincere 180 from as recent as Dallas. 3) His story is believable, and any man would've done the same. 4) He LOOKS like the exact type of guy that the police would harass. I won't spell it out, but the fact that the police so quickly assumed he was suspect must be extremely frustrating, and I can understand if he got really upset. Hang in there PAC, you have supporters and we can't wait to see what you have in store for 2011.

He always claims that he is falsely arrested and harassed by the cops.  Someone should give him a copy of the "The boy who cried wolf" and see if he gets it.  It's probably too late now for him though.
