Former Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was reportedly attacked during a run-in with a facility-service employee at the airport in Atlanta.
According to TMZ Sports, Jones confronted ABM Industries employee Frank Ragin after Ragin made a “gesture” toward the football player Tuesday night at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Police say words were exchanged before Ragin struck Jones with a closed fist, causing a cut to Jones’ face. Jones then reportedly tried to take off his backpack but instead throws a haymaker at Ragin.
Cellphone video footage shows that Jones and Ragin traded several punches with each other. Jones ultimately knocked Ragin down to the ground with a punch to the face then hit the employee one more time before a man broke up the fight.
After gathering information and seeing the video, police arrested Ragin, citing him as the instigator and states that Jones was simply defending himself.
Ragin was arrested on two counts of battery and taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries.
Pacman Jones is notably one of the NFL’s most fierce players. The one-time Pro Bowler spent eight seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals before playing with the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys.
