Adam "Pacman" Jones is trying to turn his most recent run-in with the law into some clicks for his new music ... using the police video of his arrest earlier this month to promote his latest rap song.
The 39-year-old posted some of the footage on his Instagram page on Wednesday ... showing him yelling at an officer after he was taken into custody at Northern Kentucky International Airport on Sept. 11.
In the clip, you can see the ex-NFL star in the back of a police cruiser ... loudly questioning a cop about why he was being arrested after he said all he did was complain to airline employees about a faulty charging port on his plane.
"Bro, I'm going to jail for being on the plane?!" Jones said. "Bro, I didn't even yell at nobody!"
Jones' video then transitioned into a snippet of his new rap song.
"Its always two sides of the story …….," Jones captioned the vid. "👂🏾👂🏾👂🏾new music. Ep coming."
Jones -- who's been adamant he did nothing wrong at the airport -- is currently facing three misdemeanor charges in the case. He's due in court for a hearing on the matter next week.
