Charges Dropped Against Pacman

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) _ A Tennessee judge dismissed misdemeanor charges against suspended Titans player Adam "Pacman''
Jones today, agreeing with the prosecutor that Jones has been punished enough over the past year.

District Attorney General William Whitesell said at a hearing in Murfreesboro that Jones knew his behavior was inappropriate when he
was arrested outside a nightclub in August 2006.

Jones apologized to the court and has written an apology to the arresting officer.

Jones had reached a plea deal to avoid jail time on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct after he got into an argument, refused to leave the club and shouted profanities at officers.

The judged considered revoking that deal because Jones was charged with two felonies after a Las Vegas strip club melee.

The Las Vegas case resulted in the sixth arrest for Jones since the Titans drafted him with the sixth pick overall in 2005. The NFL suspended Jones in April 2007 for the season because of his off-field conduct and will review his status after the Pro Bowl.

Jones was the sixth overall pick in the 2005 draft. He grew up in College Park, Georgia, and attended Westlake High School where he won two state titles.
