Adam 'Pacman' Jones allegedly attacked at airport

Free-agent National Football League cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was involved in an altercation at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta on Tuesday evening.

Frank Ragin, an employee of facilities management company ABM, "made a gesture toward" Jones, the TMZ article states. He says Ragin was the aggressor and Jones defended himself - a claim supported by video of the altercation.

This time it seems trouble found Adam Pacman Jones instead of the other way around.

Daugherty says that at some point during the fight, Ragin ended up hitting a woman who was with Jones, injuring her hand. The employee was then arrested by members of the Atlana Police Department and charged with battery. Ragin was taken to an area hospital to be treated for his injuries. In February of the following year, he was arrested for obstruction of justice following an incident at his Georgia home. A skirmish broke out when a security guard intervened.

Pacman and his friend are said to have declined medical treatment. Jones received a one year suspended prison sentence for his role in the altercation. Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 National Football League season and a portion of the 2008 season.

If Jones does get signed, he will miss the first game of the regular season for a violation of the league's personal conduct policy. Most recently, he played for the Cincinnati Bengals.

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