SJ - November 9, 2021

Former NFL cornerback Pacman Jones was sentenced to 180 days in jail for a bar fight in Cincinnati that left a man unconscious.  The February arrest is the latest in a long list of issues he's had over the years.

According to reports, Pacman will not serve the majority of the 180 day sentence.  If he's good, and that's a big if, he'll only have to serve 30 days.

From Larry Brown Sports:

Jones pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor charges stemming from the fight. He was given a 180-day jail sentence, with 150 of the days suspended. Jones will only have to serve 30 days if he stays out of trouble. He’s also been sentenced to nine months probation and will have to abstain from drinking alcohol and abide by a 9 p.m. curfew during that time.

The February arrest was one of several for Jones. The 38-year-old was suspended the entire 2007 season and part of 2008 for a strip club shooting he incited. He was arrested at a casino as recently as 2019.

At some point you either learn to stay out of trouble or you lean into it.  Pacman seems to be heading down the leaning into it path.
