Tennessee Titans Statement Regarding Adam Jones

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- The Tennessee Titans released the following statement, which is posted on the team's Web site.

"The club is deeply disturbed that the alleged conduct of one of its players has resulted in felony charges in one state and accusations of felony conduct in another state.

"Since the NFL is preparing to introduce a new player conduct policy and since criminal charges and investigations are in progress, comment or speculation would be inappropriate.  The club is currently reviewing its options with respect to the player."

Police in Las Vegas announced Monday that they are seeking charges against cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones in connection to shootings at a nightclub during the NBA All-Star weekend.

In a press conference Monday, Lt. George Castro said that the department is seeking a felony charge of coercion and misdemeanor threat and battery charges against the Jones in the February shooting at Minxx.

Jones was present at the club where three people were shot including a manager who was paralyzed. The club owner told investigators Jones threatened to kill a security guard and assaulted a dancer.

While police did not go into specifics, they said Jones was part of a physical fight.

Earlier this month, Tennessee Titans Head Coach Jeff Fisher told a Nashville radio station that he was unaware of Jones' arrests last year in 2006.

Jones faces charges in Fayette County, Ga., for allegedly getting into a scuffle with police. Jones was arrested twice in 2006 for separate incidents. He was charged with possession of marijuana and obstruction of justice.

In the first incident, officers said when they stopped Jones, he was angry and got physical with them. Jones was arrested 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.

While the drug charge against Jones was dropped, Jones was scheduled to appear in court in Georgia later in March on the obstruction charge.

Titans officials said they were not aware of the Georgia incidents. In the NFL, players are required to report this type of incident right after it happens.
