Titans' Jones Found Not Guilty, Case Dismissed

Titan's star cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones won a big victory in court Thursday, and he sounded off afterwards.

Jones was accused of spitting on TSU student Krystal Webb during an altercation in a Nashville nightclub last October.

"After words started being said back and forth, he hawked up everything in him and spit on me and it hit me in my face and my hair," Webb said.

Witness Crystal Ross claimed she saw it happen.

"And he cocked his head back, and spit on her face and that's when the conflict started," Ross said.

Jones disagreed from the stand in court. He said they were lying and that he was on stage at the time as a guest at the party.

"If I was to spit on her, I had to spit on everybody around her because I was up on the stage," Jones said.

Pacman's attorney dropped a bomb when he announced the victim had requested $50,000 to settle. Pacman refused.

"I would be a fool to give her $50,000 for something I know I didn't do," he said.

The alleged victim's attorney gave no comment on the deal.

On the bench, Judge John Aaron Holt found holes in the victim's story and dropped all charges against Pacman. 

"I've learned my lesson. I'm a bigger target than I was before this incident. Now I really have to watch where I go. Maybe I'll chill out at a jazz bar somewhere with some older folks," Jones said. "I'm just happy it's over with. I'm ready to get back to football."

Jones still faces civil charges from the case, although lawyers said it's much harder to win a civil case after the criminal charge is dropped.  

He paid a $100,000 fine to the NFL following the incident, but he will get that money back after the case was dismissed.
