Bengals say Pacman arrested in case of mistaken identity

A rumor running rampant on Twitter and the Internet at large involves a contention that Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones was arrested after Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers.

The Bengals tell us that Pacman Jones indeed was arrested.  But the Bengals also claim that Jones has been released.

Per Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan, the police have characterized it as a case of mistaken identity.

So Pacman was indeed arrested.  But, according to the team, he was released without charges.

    If he was arrested for being suspected of being an idiot…is that really mistaken identity?

    Adam Jones of the Orioles was prevented from entering Canada during this past summer because they thought he was Pac Man, a case of mistaken identity. He finally got in 12 hours later. Adam Jones of the Orioles is an upstanding citizen involved in the community in a positive way. How those Canucks confused him w/ this thug is beyond reason. So who would the Cops confuse Pac Man with?

    He was mistaken for Donkey Kong.

    If the cuffs fit… wear em.

  18. NFLMMAfan says: Oct 10, 2010 8:40 PM

    At least they didn’t taze him before checking his ID

    Adam Jones of the Orioles got arrested at customs a few months back crossing the border into Canada, and was released because of mistaken identity. Somewhere in America there is a 3RD Adam Jones, even worse than the other 2. Scary thought.

    He was mistaken for a football player.

    In that case you can go. We don’t have the heart – you have enough problems.”

    Not enough “Make it rain jokes” gang. I’m disappointed in you all.

    Adam Jones in cuffs, hit the rewind button again, and again, and again, and again, and again…..
