Cops: Pacman Jones was 'Combative, Belligerent'

10/11/2010 6:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cincinnati Bengals star Adam "Pacman" Jones was "belgerant [sic] and combative" with officers during his arrest in Cincinnati yesterday ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

According to the report, Jones was driving his silver Jaguar near Great American Ball Park when he "swerved to avoid striking another vehicle and ran on to the sidewalk."

Cops say Jones' car caused a pedestrian to fall down ... but the person wasn't hurt.

Officers claim they ran a routine check on Jones ... and a dispatcher indicated there was "some type of open warrant."

Cops say it was noisy when they were speaking to the dispatcher and "did not hear the dispatcher correct herself and state that the outstanding warrant was for another person."

Cops say they released Jones two blocks away from the scene to "avoid onlookers and embarrassment." Cops have since issued an apology to Jones ... no word if he'll accept it.

So they released him two blocks away. Yet people who saw him cuffed still thought he was arrested. And the news of this mix up found its way on ESPN to TMZ. When the police could have took him back to the seen, release him where people was, to show that he was ok, he was not arrested, and they made a simple mistake.

Cincinnati, nice car, black guy - yup! Arrest him! Sounds like the dispatcher needs to get her act together as well. Cops heard "open warrant" but didn't hear Oops, wrong person. Again black guy gets arrested. Agree with comment that noted arrested in front of a lot of people, released privately. There is a whole lot wrong with this Scenario!!!

Q    

Get over yourself dude, it can and does happen to all of us...but guy like you gets combative, beligerent, all weird, like you're going to win that debate---cops can run you in for any reason, even when there isnt one---your rights come in court...people confuse that all the time. usually coming to their senses in the holding tank after about 4 hours of cooling off...Can run you in for any reason---you get your rights in court where the conviction or freedom comes. Best not to make a scene and argue, even if you think the cops are wrong---you act up, they'll run you in.

Jones is a disgrace as a human being, citizen, and person. Horrible role model, its a shame the NFL has turned into the Step N Fetch it league---but the original step n fetch was a millionaire, but died miserable and depressed.

This was all over the local news here. Several people caught the entire thing on video. He didn't appear to be "combative and belligerent" at all. As a matter of fact when I saw this on the 5 o'clock news I even mentioned how well he seemed to be taking being detained and cuffed because of mistaken identity. I think the Cinci police like to make a big deal out of any incident with a Bengal. Especially since even the bad boys stay pretty low key now.

That is false imprisonment...and a clear violation of his rights...Jones should file a law suit against the city...someone needs to be held accountable for this mess up...

TMZ must do a year in arrests of atheletes. This more than a coincidence that so many professional players than any oter time are being arrested in record number. If the research is done it will be apparant. It seems to me that there is more going on tan just bad behaviour.

I Blog SO GOOD    

WOw TMZ its always somebody or something negative esp with black athletes and entertainers. How about report how George Clinton was ROBBED OF MILLIONS from scheming thieves in the record industry with zero musical talent. How about report on that!
