Police: Cowboys' Adam Jones involved in fight

DALLAS (AP) — Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was involved in a fight with one of his bodyguards, according to Dallas police, the night before attending a previously scheduled team meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

No one was arrested and no one will be charged in connection with the fight late Tuesday night at The Joule, an upscale downtown hotel.

Jones missed all of last season for Tennessee while serving an NFL suspension for off-field incidents. Goodell fully reinstated the cornerback, acquired by Dallas in a trade in April, just before the season opener.

"Someone from the business called police," Dallas police spokesman Cpl. Jerry Monreal told The Associated Press. "Police arrived and spoke to the parties after they had a verbal argument. Both parties agreed to leave, and they left."

The incident report lists no names, and Monreal said he did not know if Jones was involved in the fight, which was first reported by Dallas-Fort Worth TV station KTVT.

But the details of the incident and Jones' involvement were confirmed to The Dallas Morning News by Deputy Chief Vince Golbeck, who is a commander of the central patrol division, which responded to the call. Golbeck was not in the police station Wednesday night, and a dispatcher at the central patrol division declined to comment.

Jones' agent, Warrick Robinson, said he had spoken with Jones on Wednesday but declined to discuss the details of their conversation. He referred all questions to the Cowboys. Team spokesman Rich Dalrymple did not immediately respond to an e-mail and voicemail left by The Associated Press.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the NFL had no comment.

Before meeting with the Cowboys on Wednesday, Goodell said to reporters in San Antonio: "Adam knows how much emphasis I put on making sure that he makes good choices going forward, that he avoids situations where he can reflect poorly on himself, the Cowboys or the NFL. So far he seems to have been able to do that very effectively.

"I am supportive of him and am hopeful that he will be able to do that for the rest of his life. I am hoping he will not only be a great NFL player but he will continue to do the right things so he can lead a productive life off the field as well."

Before the latest incident, Jones has been arrested six times and involved in a dozen incidents requiring police intervention since Tennessee drafted him in the first round in 2005. That includes his connection to a shooting at a Las Vegas strip club.

Goodell suspended Jones in April 2007 after an accumulation of arrests and legal problems.

At the time of his reinstatement Aug. 28, Jones said: "I know my responsibilities to the NFL and I'm going to hold my own and do what I need to do to make sure I stay where I am right now, which is reinstated. I work hard every day to make sure I don't make the same mistakes. Can I say I would never ever make the same mistakes? No, I can't say that. I'll make sure I put myself in way better situations than I have put myself in the past."

Does this really surprise anybody?
Jerry Jones no doubt has the money to insure the bodyguard doesn't press charges.

I hope you are right, my friend. We need as many distractions to this Cowboy team. The team I hate most.... the Cowboys. :x

Here's the skinny.... though no police report has been filed and no charges pressed by the team bodyguard (the man Pacman got in a fight with)... reports say that he will still have to go to New York and answer questions from Goodell. Also noteworthy is that Pacman has been starting for ProBowl CB Terrance Newman who is now sidelined with a sports hernia and will not be able to play for 4-6 weeks. If Pacman gets ousted by Goodell, then the depth in the Cowboy secondary will be severely hampered. GREAT NEWS!!!

This will be swept under the rug as fast as possible. You saw the beginnings of that when no police report was filed. Jones will find a way to make this go away.

You know it’s true! I bet Jones is on the phone right now to the Commissioners office: “hello buddy, do you mind if I use your broom? Yea, the really big one you used to sweep that pesky little Patriot’s “cheating” issue under the rug with.”

And people wonder why I hate JJ so much. He makes Bob Kraft look like a boy scout. You don't ever hear of anything underhanded by Jones, because he's that big of a snake. He's been doing crap like this for years. The Cowboys are like the Bungals.... they just have better lawyers and Jerry Jones.
