Pacman finds himself in the spotlight once again, this time for negative reasons.
Recently released bodycam footage provides a glimpse into the aftermath of the arrest of former NFL player and current contributor to The Pat McAfee Show, Adam “Pacman” Jones. He was apprehended early on a Monday morning for allegedly causing a disturbance on a plane. The newly disclosed video, captured by a police cruiser’s camera, reveals the moments following the arrest of the former Cincinnati Bengals player.
Speaking to TMZ.com, Pacman Jones insisted, “I did not threaten anyone. I was not drunk. And, as the video clearly shows, I was the one who was mistreated.”
A cursory look at the video indeed suggests that Pacman did not appear to be impaired, contrary to previous reports. Nonetheless, the 39-year-old faced charges of alcohol intoxication, disorderly conduct, and terroristic threatening after reportedly engaging in a dispute with airline staff over USB ports near his seat during the flight.
Airport police attempted to defuse the situation, but Jones remained uncooperative and argumentative.
In the arrest footage that has now surfaced, Jones can be seen in the back of a police cruiser, questioning why he was arrested in the first place.
“You said I was drunk,” Jones exclaimed from his seat in the car. “Bitch, breathalyze me. I’m not drunk.”
The officer then informed Jones that he was charged with alcohol intoxication, prompting Pacman to launch into a tirade and assert that he had only consumed one drink.
“How the f–k are you going to lock me up for alcohol, and you haven’t breathalyzed me?” he demanded. “You sound stupid as f–k. It’s 6 AM in the morning, n—a. I had one f–king drink, which was a Pinot f–king Grigio. Go to the f–king bar and ask them. You stupid f–kers!”
Jones continued to vent his frustration and even predicted that the arresting officer would be “fired.”
As for his intended destination, Jones was en route to New Jersey to catch “Monday Night Football” between the Jets and Bills.
The former All-Pro played for the Bengals from 2010 to 2017, concluding his career with the Broncos in 2018.
