Titans’ Pacman Jones Arrested Again

According to a police report, officers arrived at Club Sweetwater just outside downtown Murfreesboro and saw Jones arguing with a woman. Police later found out that the woman was there with Jones to watch a rap concert. Police said Jones was upset because the woman's purse was missing and his wallet and cell phone were inside that purse.

Toya Garth was the woman accused of stealing the purse, and she said that the situation was all a misunderstanding. She claimed that she and Jones are friends and this was just a fight between buddies that was blown way out of proportion.

Officers said Jones appeared to be drunk when they got to the bar, so they asked him to leave. They said that's when Jones began yelling profanities and causing a disturbance.

Police said Jones tried to leave the scene in his car. Jones was not driving the vehicle at the time, but police officers said he was leaning out the passenger's window screaming at security officers, and that's when police stopped the car and arrested the Titans star.

"He continued to be belligerent and yell profanities at the officers and cry on the way to the Sheriff's office. At the Sheriff's office, he was up and down. He would continue also to shout profanities there and to cry there as well," said Lt. Alvin Baird of the Murfreesboro Police Department. "The first time the officers encountered him, they didn't know who he was, they just saw two people arguing outside the Sweetwater Saloon and, upon investigation, found out who he was. There was a report taken as to a purse that was supposedly stolen. Mr. Jones was given an opportunity to file a report as far as his stolen wallet but he refused to do so."

People associated with the club were quick to defend him. Monya Perez said her father owns the club and her husband was actually the bartender serving Pac-man's crew. She said they didn't cause any problems. She believed Pac-man was locked up because he's black.

"We've had some incidents with police here, some racial issues I believe," Perez said.

Police said that's not the case.

"We'll arrest anybody, any color if they're down here drunk acting a fool," Lieutenant Alvin Baird of the Murfeesboro Police Department said.

Jones, 22, was released from the Rutherford County jail after posting bond. This latest brush with the law wasn't the first for Jones, and it marked the fourth time a Titans player has been arrested since May of this year. All of this despite head Coach Jeff Fisher's stern warning following last season about what kind of behavior would and would not be accepted.

"No tolerance for any off-the-field legal issues. That relates to the entire team. There's a "no tolerance" policy as far as we're concerned. I will not tolerate any off-the-field issues. There will be definite disciplinary action taken by the organization," Fisher said on January 2, 2006.

In July, 2005 Jones was charged with assault after a brawl at a Nashville night club. That case was eventually settled.

The Tennessee Titans just wrapped up training camp on Thursday and will play their third preseason game Saturday night against the Falcons in Nashville.

It is not know if he will be playing in Saturday's game against Atlanta at LP Field.
