Strip Club Owner Disputes Pacman's Lawyer

The co-owner of the Las Vegas strip club where three people were shot over the weekend said Tennessee Titans player Adam "Pacman" Jones came and left with the shooter. The account differs from that of Jones' lawyer. 

One man was paralyzed in the shooting. Las Vegas Police did not comment, but said Jones was just a witness.

Club owner Robert Susnar told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Jones denied knowing the shooter, but said the man was sitting next to him. He said he based his information on interviews with his employees and watching the club's surveillance video.

He said, "Pacman denied any knowledge of the shooter, but he was sitting right next to him. Those guys came in together and left together."

Susnar said the shooter and Jones came in together and left together. 

Susnar also granted an interview to local sports talk radio 104.5 The Zone where he said he spoke out to put some pressure on Pacman.

Jones' lawyer, Worrick Robinson, told The Associated Press in Nashville Wednesday that Jones did not know anyone involved in the shooting and was interviewed by local authorities as a witness, not as a suspect.

Police have not said Jones is a person of interest in the case. 

Susnar said the trouble started when Jones and his entourage came back to the club for a second time after 4:00 a.m. He said Jones and his crew behaved like animals. He and other witnesses in the club told police "numerous individuals in Jones' entourage began yelling and pushing the dancers."

The owner said Jones tossed hundreds of $1 bills on the stage and got angry when a stripper started grabbing them.

Susnar said Jones grabbed the dancer's hair and slammed her head against the stage. 

He also said Jones threatened to kill a bouncer who intervened. 

Witnesses also told police, "Jones challenged security and reached behind his back as if he was retrieving a weapon there."

Susnar said, "At that point Pacman said I'm going to kill you."

When order was restored and everyone was outside, Susnar said the gunman fired toward the front door, hitting two security guards and a female patron. 

Robinson said Jones was never involved in a fight.

"No, he was not involved in the fight. He actually had surgery on his shoulder last week. He had stitches in the front and back of his shoulder right now, and he's certainly in no position to get into a fight," Robinson said.

Police only have a vague description of the shooter, but Susmar said Pacman knows exactly who he is.

The NFL, Coach Fisher or the Titans have made no comment at this point.

Robinson did not return comments Wednesday about Susnar's comments.

This was not the first time Pacman has been linked to trouble since he's been a Titan.

In April of 2005, his name came up in an Atlanta strip club fight. In June 2005, Jones was in a hotel room where police found marijuana. No charged were filed.

One month later, Jones was arrested for assault and vandalism. The charges were dismissed. In April, 2006 a car registered to Pacman was involved in a drug trafficking ring. No charges were filed.

Just a few days later, he was at a gas station where gunshots were fired. In August, 2006 Pacman was arrested for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct. If he behaves, these charges could also be dropped.

In October of 2006, Jones got a citation for spitting in a woman's face. Charges were dismissed.
