A day after Pacman Jones abandoned an appeal of his yearlong NFL suspension, Las Vegas police will take what they believe is a fortified case to the district attorney today, trying to persuade him to move forward with charges against the Titans cornerback, reports The Tennessean. Assuming that Clark County District Attorney David Roger is swayed and moves forward, official charges against Jones probably would kill any chance he has to be reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after 10 games this fall.
Las Vegas police have been investigating Jones’ role in a Feb. 19 strip club melee that ended with a triple shooting. On March 26, police publicly recommended that the district attorney file three charges against Jones: felony coercion, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor threats to life. Police labeled Jones an “inciter” but said they had not established any link between him and the unidentified gunman. Roger requested further investigation.
“They are going to the DA’s office” today, said Jose Montoya, information officer for the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. “They are probably looking at the same charges. They think they’ve got a little bit stronger of a case”. Attorneys representing Jones did not return phone calls. His agent, Michael Huyghue, said he’s dealing with league matters while the attorneys deal with criminal issues. Continue to visit NFL GRIDIRON GAB for continuous coverage of the Pacman Jones case.
