- Police say Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was attacked during a run-in with a facility-service employee at the Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Police said Frank Ragin, an ABM employee "made a gesture" at Jones. Jones approached Ragin and a verbal altercation ensued. Jones ultimately knocks him to the ground with a punch. Bad news for him is that he was identified as the one who started the fight and was therefore arrested.

Ragin was arrested for two counts of battery, as he also hit a woman who was with Jones. Jones and his companion reportedly declined medical attention while Ragin was reportedly taken to the hospital. In February 2006, Jones was arrested in Fayetteville, Georgia after an incident outside a home.

He also pleaded guilty to obstructing a police officer past year, served a few days in jail and was suspended by the league for a game. He missed the entire 2007 season, banned by Roger Goodell.

The former No. 6 overall pick in the 2005 National Football League draft, Jones has been involved in numerous off-field incidents over the course of his career. Jones is then held back from punching him further.
