Pacman could be facing probation violation in Vegas

Adam Jones AP

When word broke of Pacman Jones‘ latest arrest, we pointed out that, if he remains on probation for any of his past guilty pleas, he could be facing a separate problem.

Unfortunately for Pacman, he has not yet completed probation in Las Vegas due to charges arising from the NBA All-Star weekend rainmaking, which led to some gunshooting.

Per the Associated Press, Clark County District Attorney David Roger will review whether Pacman violated the terms of his probation.  Roger said that a decision to pursue, or not pursue, the matter may not come for “weeks.”

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Jones had served only five months of a one-year probation term.

Typically, an effort to prove the violation of a probation order entails a much lower legal standard than “proof beyond a reasonable doubt.”  And that would make it easier for Roger to put Pacman what New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg calls “the slammer.”

That’s why it was even more important for Pacman to constantly avoid any situation that could potentially lead to a claim that he jeopardized the probation order that kept him out of jail.  Early Sunday, he failed.  It remains to be seen whether that means, after more than 10 legal problems since joining the NFL, he’ll finally do time.

    I’m no Pac appologist and I hated when we signed him. But you guys keep ignoring the man is in a neck brace from neck surgery he had a couple weeks ago. Was he really “resisting arrest”? Just saying. Look at his mug shot. He can’t even turn side to side.

    The article speaks for itself … 10 arrests

    This clown deserves no more “second chances”…..he’s had like a dozen I think. Dispense with him once and for all. He is a major distraction and embarassment for the NFL.

    When you reach a certain point in your life, you either get it or you dont. He doesn’t and he never will.

    You can tell a guy can’t turn his head based on a still photo? Damn, your good!

    He better now start being “all rebellion” in front of the judge!

    Dude needs to stay out of trouble. It’s not like he makes a TON of money (in relation to NFL players – not blue collar jobs).

    According to spotrac.com, Pacman will make $640k in the upcoming season – if he keeps up this, he won’t be making a penny AND he’ll be paying for more of his stupidity.

    If the information that was disclosed in the “HBO Sports” episode about the bouncer paralyzed by the gunshots during the incident Pacman was correct I don’t think anyone will feel bad if he has violated his probation.

    He’d better “make it rain” into his attorney’s checking account.

    I agree with Kaz….It was obvious he couldn’t turn his head , what picture were you looking at friggin idiot

    He could be in a full body cast and still find a way to be in trouble with the law.

    It’s not a coincidence that you hear the same names when police are involved……

    He is not smart enough to stay out of trouble. He should be banned from the NFL for life.

  12. upperdecker19 says: Jul 11, 2011 6:13 PM

    Better go to an immediate name change to “Asteroids”, “Galaga” or “Space Invaders”.

    This moron’s entire life is a probation violation. What a waste of everything his dumb @$$ is.

    friggin idiots are people like you who who are trying to stick up for a turd who has double digit arrests on his resume. Did it ever occur to you that people can resist even if they are in a neckbrace??

    looks like a crakhead in that picture haha, send him to the raiders were he belongs!

    The sad fact of the matter (from what I have read) is that Pacman Jones is actually an intelligent person. The guy has brains. He had above average standardized test scores…that said, he makes bad decision after bad decision.
    Pacman has only Pacman to blame for his situation.

    He looks like he didn’t eat in that picture!!!

    Good lord, if I have to read this stupid argument one more time I am going to claw my eyes out so I don’t ever have to read it again.

    What do you think constitutes resisting arrest? Why do you think it impossible to resist arrest with a sore neck?

    Don’t you realize that if a police officer moves towards you to place you under arrest and you simply try to walk away, that is resisting arrest?

    That if an officer tries to put your wrists together to cuff you and you hold your arm over your head to make it difficult that is resisting arrest?

    In fact, in some jurisdictions, if you try to argue with the officer while you are being arrested, you can be charged with “resisting without violence”.

    You seem to have a Cops episode stuck in your head. You don’t have attack officers wildly or flail around on the ground violently to be resisting. The threshold to be charged with resisting is much lower than that.

    The DA who will be deciding his fate is the same one who sent OJ Simpson away. Pac-Child better hope the guy he helped paralyze out here doesn’t have any friends in the Clark County Detention Center. Be a shame to see such a promising future derailed by a jailhouse shanking.

    Good-bye NFL……Hello TNA wrestling after a much deserved trip to the slammer.

    Is this a case of a “mistake” or bad character?
