Fight with bodyguard latest trouble for Pacman

DALLAS -- Cowboys cornerback Adam (Pacman) Jones placed his status with the NFL in jeopardy by getting involved in an altercation early Wednesday morning at a Dallas hotel.

According to Dallas police, Jones hit his bodyguard, Tommy Jones, at the Joule Hotel. The bodyguard, police said, declined to press charges, and no official report was filed.

Deputy Chief Vince Golbeck, commander of the central patrol division, said officers were called to the Joule about 1:30 a.m. and were told there was a disturbance between Adam Jones and one of his security officers. Golbeck said officers believed Adam Jones was drinking and that he may have stayed at the hotel. Sources close to Jones dispute the report.

Adam Jones was not available for comment. Calls to Tommy Jones were not returned.

"I have talked to him," said Worrick Robinson, Adam Jones' Nashville, Tenn.-based attorney. "I think it's just better that I don't have any comments."

Adam Jones returned to the NFL in August when he was fully reinstated after serving a one-year suspension for violations of the league conduct policy. When he was allowed to fully re-enter the league on Aug. 28, he was told any further problems could result in a lifetime ban.

NFL officials declined comment, and the Cowboys were unaware of the incident. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had made a scheduled visit to Valley Ranch on Wednesday, and before the trip, he told San Antonio reporters he planned to see Jones. It's not known if Goodell knew about the incident before meeting with team officials.

Cowboys officials knew they were taking a risk in making a draft-day deal for Jones with the Tennessee Titans. Since he was drafted in 2005, he has been arrested six times and involved in 12 incidents requiring police intervention.
