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.

Adam Jones is an idiot. Met him when he was in Dallas. Players that want to act like idiots should be treated like idiots. Get him out of the league and let him go broke. He obviously doesn't spend well if he is buying a Jag. Buy a Porsche, you fool.

Why do the police continue to harrass black people/minorities? Another reason why a lot of us don't talk to them if we see a crime. Cops dislike black people.

Biased Reporting    

Information left out of TMZ story. He was handcuffed and held for 45 minutes. I'm not a Pacman fan but TMZ is biased in the way they report things.

TMZ left out relevant Information. He was handcuffed and held for 45 minutes. I am not a Paman fan but TMZ is biased in a lot of their reporting of news. And why is the type of car he's driving relevant to this story?

To avoid his embarassment, or THIERS? They cuff and stuff him in front of everyone but, then release him two blocks away; with everyone just thinking he was being carted off to jail.
The only save face would've been for anyone who may have been left there to see him come back for his car.
And what happened to the idiot that caused the whole incident?

Who wouldn't be combative if you knew you had no warrants and the police are saying yes you do and puts you in cuffs to go downtown. Common police department, Half are Protecting, Half are Attacking.
