TC: 10 things I love about Adam Jones

That he took advantage of his name during his last suspension from the league by getting involved in professional wrestling. Gotta make money somehow.

I love that if you are lucky enough to hang with Pacman, chances are you'll be questioned by one or more policemen.

If you make Pacman mad, you might get spat on.

For taking out a full ad in The Tennessean, promising "he'll win back trust" of his teammates and fans." "To my family, teammates, coaches and fans, I recognize that I have lost the right to ask for your patience and understanding," Jones wrote. "However, I will do everything in my power to regain your trust and respect."

I love that his closest personal advisor is Deion Sanders.

For enjoying him some nightlife (who cares what the Commissioner of the NFL says).

First for having a bodyguard and second for throwing down with said bodyguard after getting a little tipsy.

For releasing a hip hop album through his own recording label, National Street League Records. Let it Shine Pac, Let it Shine.

For this

Jones and American rap artist Nelly patronized the club on the evening in question. Nelly, along with someone known only as Richard Rich, began to shower the stage with hundreds of one-dollar bills; an act known as making it rain." Jones then joined Nelly by throwing his own money for "visual effect." Club promoter Chris Mitchell then directed his dancers to collect the money. According to the club's co-owner, Jones became enraged when one of the dancers began taking the money without his permission. He allegedly grabbed her by her hair and slammed her head on the stage. A security guard intervened and scuffled with members of Jones' entourage of half a dozen people. Jones then allegedly threatened the guard's life. During this time, Mitchell and a male associate left the club with a garbage bag filled with $81,020 of Jones' money and two Breitling watches, which police later recovered.

After club patrons left following the original confrontation, the club owner claimed a person in Jones' entourage returned with a gun and fired into a crowd, hitting three people, including the security guard involved in the earlier skirmish. The guard was shot twice, and one of the people hit--former professional wrestler Tommy Urbanski--was paralyzed from the waist down. Jones maintains that he did not know the shooter, although the club's owner insists that Jones did. On March 26, 2007, the Las Vegas Police recommended to the city's district attorney that Jones be charged with one count of felony coercion as well as one misdemeanor count of battery and one misdemeanor count of threat to life.
Finally, I love Pacman for making Mr. Jerry Jones a bit red in the face.
