NFL Star Pacman Jones Throws Blows With Airport Employee In Atlanta

Former Cincinnati Bengal Adam "Pacman" Jones, who has had run-ins with the law and a few National Football League suspensions over his career, was the victim of an assault Tuesday night at the Atlanta airport, according to reports and a video captured by TMZ.

According to police, airport worker Frank Ragin "made a gesture at Jones" that launched an argument between the two near gate B6 at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Tuesday night. Officials say Ragin made a "gesture".

Ragin allegedly punched Jones, who pushed Ragin to the ground.

Shortly after the Tennessee Titans drafted him in 2005, Jones was arrested for assault and felony vandalism for an incident at a Nashville nightclub.

England fans go wild at Odsal
That match against West Germany had ended in a 1-1 draw , with England going on to lose the penalty shootout. They were briefly silenced when Croatia equalised through Ivan Perisic in the middle of the second half.

TMZ reported that police said Ragin also hit Jones' female companion, injuring her hand. Police determined Ragin was indeed the aggressor, and he was arrested on two counts of battery.

Jones tries to take off his backpack, but instead throws a haymaker at Ragin. In February of the following year, he was arrested for obstruction of justice following an incident at his Georgia home. Both declined medical treatment. The NFL suspended Jones for one game for a violation of its personal conduct policy. Jones is then held back from punching him further.

Most recently, he pleaded guilty to obstructing police following a January 2017 altercation in downtown Cincinnati.

This is not the first time the National Football League star made headlines off the field.
