NFL cornerback Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones was recorded fighting and knocking out an airport employee.
According to police, Jones was assaulted by an airport worker at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
The employee, identified as Frank Ragin, allegedly made a gesture toward Jones around 10 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10. Police say that Jones confronted the man about what the gesture meant and the two began to argue.
Ragin was charged with two counts of battery and was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital to be treated for his injuries.
The argument occurred on concourse B near Gate B6, police said.
Ragin allegedly punched Jones, injuring his face. He also allegedly struck Jones’ companion, who has not been identified, injuring her hand.
Police said Jones, 34, then pushed Ragin to the ground. Police eventually determined Ragin was the primary aggressor.
Ragin, who was charged with two counts of battery, was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital to be treated for his injuries. Jones and his companion declined medical treatment.
Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport has been the world’s busiest airport by passenger traffic since 1998.
This is not Jones’ first controversial moment as he has a history of incidents during his career.
When he was drafted into NFL, Jones was on probation for a fight in West Virginia. In February 2006, Jones was arrested in Fayetteville, Georgia after an incident outside a home. On August 25, 2006, during training camp, Jones was arrested in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
In fact, he has an entire section on his Wikipedia dedicated to his legal troubles. However, Jones was not in the wrong this time, as police determined that the airport employee was the instigator of the fight.
