Charges against ‘Pacman’ dismissed

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) - Charges of disorderly conduct and public intoxication against suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones were dropped Thursday, according to a published report.

The Tennessean reported on its web site that the charges, which came as a result of an August 2006 arrest, were dismissed at the request of District Attorney Bill Whitesell.

Jones did not address the media after appearing in court, but attorney Worrick Robinson did.

“He and I have had serious talks about 2008 as a new year; 2007 was a terrible, terrible year for Adam Jones,” Robinson told the Tennessean. “He’s glad that 2007 is over … 2008 is a new year, and it’s good that we could start off with getting this matter resolved.

“He obviously has other issues that are going to have to be resolved, but they will be addressed.”

Jones is now awaiting word from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to make a decision on whether he will be reinstated in 2008. Goodell could make an announcement after the Pro Bowl on February 10.

Jones was suspended before the start of the 2007 season due to a litany of legal problems.
