Pacman Jones Booted from Casino Before Hotel Arrest ... 'Berated Staff, Patrons'

1/24/2017 10:02 AM PST

12:59 PM PT -- Pacman's lawyer Tim Schneider tells TMZ Sports he believes the NFL star was thrown out of the casino under suspicious circumstances. 

Schneider says Pacman had been gambling loudly with friends for several hours -- and losing -- and the casino had no issue. 

It was only when Pacman's luck began to change that his volume became a problem.

Schneider says when Pacman was asked to leave, he did so without incident and says, "No charges came about as a result of the incident."Pacman Jones was kicked out of a Cincinnati casino for berating staffers and patrons in the hours before he was arrested at a Hyatt hotel on January 3 ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Cincinnati PD has confirmed Jones was "acting disorderly" at JACK Cincinnati Casino and was asked to leave. Security and police escorted the NFL star out of the building. 

One witness tells us Jones had verbally attacked employees at the casino and had an altercation with a casino patron who was trying to record the incident on his cell phone. 

We're told Jones also went off on a police officer who responded to the scene and was "fired up" as he left the premises. 

Of course, Jones later went to a nearby hotel where he was arrested for allegedly getting physical with a hotel security guard. 

When cops arrived at the hotel, Jones continued his aggressive behavior and told the arresting officer "suck my d***" and "I hope you die."

Jones issued a statement saying he was embarrassed by the arrest video and is taking anger management courses.

We reached out to Jones' rep for comment about the casino incident -- so far, no word back. 

It's not the first time Jones has been booted from a casino -- he was kicked out of the Hollywood Casino in Indiana in 2015 after going off on casino staffers.

Pacman Jones says he's seeking counseling and anger management after telling a Cincinnati police officer to "suck my d**k" and "die" during an arrest earlier this month. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the Cincinnati Bengals star went insane after cops were called on him for allegedly getting physical with a security guard at a local hotel.

When cops arrived, the guy went berserk -- screaming obscenities, dropping n-bombs, threatening the officer's job and telling the cop "I hope you die."

Now, Jones has issued a statement through his lawyers saying he is "deeply embarrassed and remorseful for his conduct and language."

"Mr. Jones has the utmost respect for law-enforcement and the difficulties police encounter on a daily basis."

The lawyers add, "Mr. Jones is committed to the process of counseling and anger management, in order to ensure that such situations never occur in the future."

The Bengals have also apologized for Pacman's behavior -- but haven't said if they plan to cut the player.

Pacman Jones 911 'Bengals Player Causing Ruckus' ... 'He's #24'

1/5/2017 1:39 PM PST

TMZ Sports has obtained the Pacman Jones 911 call -- made while the Bengals star was allegedly going crazy Tuesday morning at the Millennium Hotel in Cincinnati. 

The caller is the security guard at the hotel who tells the dispatcher a "Bengals player" was causing a ruckus on the property and harassing him.

When asked if the security guard knew the player's name he replied, "He's got dreads and s**t. I can't think of his name. He's #24."

Throughout the call, you can hear yelling -- presumably Pacman -- in the background. 

Cops eventually came to the scene and arrested Pacman -- who allegedly resisted and headbutted one of the officers. He later allegedly spit on a nurse during the booking process. 

As for Pacman, he has proclaimed his innocence.

7:10 AM PT -- The Bengals released a statement, saying "We are aware and working to gather full information, but policy is that it's inappropriate for the Club to comment on unresolved legal matters."Another off-season ... another Pacman Jones run-in with police.

This time, the Cincinnati Bengals star was arrested Tuesday morning after allegedly getting violent at a Hyatt hotel ... and then spitting on a jail staffer.

Jones allegedly went ballistic at around midnight -- banging on a door and screaming and at one point, cops say he pushed and poked someone ... according to WLWT. 

When cops arrived, he allegedly resisted arrest and then spit on a jail staffer while he was being booked. 

The 33-year-old was eventually booked on misdemeanor assault, disorderly conduct and obstructing official business charges.

He's also facing felony harassment with a bodily substance for the alleged spit attack.

Jones just appeared in court, wearing a red vest and appearing frustrated. The judge set his bond at $37,500 and said he must stay away from the alleged victim.

Jones is no stranger to legal trouble ... back in 2015, he was kicked out of a casino for disorderly conduct. 

In 2013, he struck a woman in a nightclub incident (he was found not guilty).

In 2011, he was arrested for disorderly conduct while intoxicated and resisting arrest.

He was also arrested in 2005 ... and 2006. 

You get the point. 

Anthony Munoz Marvin Lewis Shouldn't Be Fired It's Not All His Fault

12/31/2016 12:01 AM PST

It might not be a popular opinion, but Bengals Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz thinks Marvin Lewis should be back on Cincinnati's sidelines next season.

The 11-time Pro Bowler says Lewis doesn't deserve all the blame for the Bengals' 5-9-1 record with one week to go in the season ... pointing out the injuries and staff changes that have plagued the team.

"I'm willing to say okay, he's got another year on his contract. Let's see what happens if everybody gets healthy."

"5 straight years in the playoffs, sure you haven't won a playoff game, but he's done a decent job there as a head coach."

Bengals superstar A.J. Green is already up and walking around after suffering what was initially thought to be a season-ending hamstring injury ... so says his teammate Carlos Dunlap

"A.J. was walking around yesterday, getting treatment," Dunlap says.

Great news for the Bengals (and of course fantasy football owners!).

As for Giovani Bernard -- who also suffered a bad injury on Sunday -- Carlos says he hasn't spoken with the running back yet ... but says he knows he'll bounce back from his ACL tear.

Meantime, Dunlap rallied up some of his other teammates like Brandon LaFell, Karlos Dansby and Michael Johnson to host a Thanksgiving dinner for 120 homeless men at the City Gospel Mission in Cincinnati on Monday ... and he couldn't be more proud!

Breaking News

The Bengals ain't gonna like this one ... 

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell -- who's also a rapper -- just dropped a NEW TRACK taking aim at Cincinnati ... just 7 weeks before they're set to do battle on the field. 

The song is "Rapping Athlete" -- in which Bell spits the lyrics: 

"All these haters @ me ... 
You need to check my rap sheet ... 
You better take the backseat like you play in Cincinnati."

There's a ton of bad blood between the Steelers and the Bengals -- in fact, it was Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict who ended Bell's season last year during a Week 8 matchup.

As far as the rivalry goes, the Steelers have won 6 out of the last 7 matchups ... so, advantage Le'Veon. 

By the way, he also name drops Johnny Manziel ... saying he's balling the ex-QB -- but back when he was in college! 

Andy Dalton LUGGAGE ADVICE From Bengals Teammate

2/16/2016 3:00 PM PST

Andy Dalton's teammates want the QB to stop losing his bags -- and now, one of his defensive linemen is offering up some advice on how to prevent your luggage from going MIA when he travels. 

We spoke with Domata Peko at LAX -- who says he's NEVER had the Dalton problem ... but definitely feels bad for the guy after AD lost his bags TWICE in the same week. 

There's more to the clip ...

With Paul McCartney getting rejected from a Grammys after-party (possibly due to the bouncer not knowing who he was) ... we asked 31-year-old Peko if he would be able to identify the Beatle based on his face alone. 

What happens next might shock you ... 


2/15/2016 3:59 PM PST

Dude. Seriously?!?!

The search is back on for Andy Dalton's suitcases ... 'cause just 5 days after they fell out of the bed of his truck, they've gone missing ... AGAIN!!!

This time, it appears to be the airline's fault -- with the Bengals QB tweeting, "I can't make this up... #bagsearch2016 is back on. @AmericanAir it's your turn to find the luggage now #unbelievable."

The Bengals QB lost his bags early Wednesday morning -- when they went flying out of the bed of his truck while on the way to the airport in Dallas.

We spoke with the Richardson PD -- who tells us someone found the bags on the side of the road and turned them in to police!

NFL's Wallace Gilberry I Had to Help That Family ... I Saw Their Faces

11/26/2015 12:35 AM PST
Exclusive Details

He's the NFL lineman who surprised a family of 7 in a Target store by picking up the check for a PS4 ... and now Bengals star Wallace Gilberry is finally explaining why he did what he did. 

Gilberry's story made national news when someone shot a pic of the 270-pounder approaching the random family Monday night and offering to buy holiday gifts for the kids. 

So ... why? 

"I just went to Target to get some clippers to trim my beard and I saw a family with a dad, wife and five or six kids. The kids were looking at the electronics and I could tell by the mom's face that she was upset about telling the kids they wouldn't be able to afford what they wanted."

"I went up to the family and asked them if they would mind if I bought the kids whatever they wanted. They said that would be so great ... the dad said he was starting a new job and money was tight."

So, Gilberry bought a PS4 and a bunch of video games -- "One of the kids was really excited about a game called Minecraft. I don't even know what that is, but he went crazy."

In the end, Gilberry dropped somewhere close to $800 ... but says it's not about the money. 

"One thing about me is that I grew up with my shirt on my back and that's it. Money doesn't define me. If I have a million dollars, I'm going to try to help a million people."
