Nashville Radio Listeners Hear Jones' Side From Attorneys

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Attorneys for Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones answered questions for nearly an hour at a Nashville radio station Friday.

Jones' attorneys Worrick Robinson and Manubir "Manny Arora, talked about incidents involving Jones in Las Vegas and Georgia with NewsChannel 5's radio partner, WGFX-FM 104.5 The Zone.

"The story seems to morph into different versions," said Arora of Garland, Samuel and Loeb law firm in Atlanta.

Arora accepted questions about his NFL star client for close to an hour Friday morning.

"I don't want to hear about how Pacman was a victim in this thing when you've got a guy with no money coming in who can't walk anymore," said Mark Howard of 104.5.

Arora replied, "Nobody said, Mark, that he was a victim in this case."

Arora and Robinson talked for nearly an hour on 104.5 The Zone about their client's recent troubles from the triple shooting investigation at a Las Vegas night club to the arrests in Georgia last year involving a scuffle with a police officer and a marijuana bust.

"If in fact Adam there was video where Adam was bashing a girl's head in on a nightclub stage and punching her, there would be pictures of a woman bruised up, everywhere," Arora said.

What happened in Vegas is still under investigation.  Jones said he was there but that he was neither responsible for the shooting nor does he know who is.

"I don't expect any changes but the police are under a lot of pressure and you've got one high profile person, so maybe," Arora said.

Jones' arrest in Georgia in 2006 recently surfaced and among the questions it has raised is why didn't the team know about it.

Earlier in the week, Titans Head Coach Jeff Fisher told the radio station that he did not know about those charges.

"The Titans will say what they will and I'm sure his agent is discussing that with the team," Arora said.

He was charged with possession of marijuana and obstruction of justice in two incidents in 2006 in Fayette County, Ga. In the first incident, officers said when they stopped Jones and after he was physically aggressive, they took him to the ground and arrested him for obstructing justice. A month later, police presented a search warrant to Jones' mother's house in Georgia and confiscated marijuana.

In the police reports and warrants, Jones admitted to smoking it. He also was quoted as saying that he would not pass a drug test but would be able to pass before the next National Football League drug test.

Jones' mother and one of his friends told police the marijuana belonged to them and the charges against Jones were dropped.

Jones is scheduled to appear in court in Georgia later in March on the obstruction charge.

In February, Jones was present at Las Vegas club where three people were shot including a manager who was paralyzed.

Jones has not been named as a suspect but a club co-owner told NewsChannel 5 that the shooter accompanied Jones in the club.

The bottom line, according to Arora and Robinson, Jones has put himself in the wrong situations too many times.

"If he doesn't commit to changing it, at some point, it's going to be too much," Arora said. "It may already be there to some extent."
