Free agent cornerback Adam "Pacman " Jones was involved in a fight with an employee at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta on Tuesday evening, resulting in the suspect being arrested, according to TMZ.
Words were exchanged between Jones and Ragin before Ragin punched Jones in the face, cutting the former Cincinnati Bengals player's eye, police said. Jones, in what police said was self-defense, knocked Ragin to the floor. During the course of the fight Ragin also struck a companion of Jones, causing an injury to her hand.
The Bengals star calls out Ragin, who according to police, went after Jones and initiated the physical altercation.
Jones' decade-plus long career has been plagued with controversy.
TMZ Sports obtained the video, which shows the airport employee verbally accosting and then physically attacking Jones. The employee was then arrested by members of the Atlana Police Department and charged with battery. In February of the following year, he was arrested for obstruction of justice following an incident at his Georgia home. The Titans suspended him for one game following that incident. Both declined medical treatment. The airline staffer, not the National Football League player, made first contact by attacking with a closed first, authorities claim. He also pleaded guilty to obstructing a police officer previous year, served a few days in jail and was suspended by the league for a game.
