Tommy Urbanski, the former Las Vegas strip club employee who has been in a wheelchair since he was shot in 2007, was recently awarded $9.6 million in a lawsuit against Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones. And although Jones’s lawyer says he doesn’t have that kind of money, Urbanski says he’ll take whatever money Jones has.
“Better start working, maybe get a second job like most of the United States does,” Urbanski told Fox 5 News in Las Vegas. “If he makes a dime, we’re going after it.”
Jones has also been ordered to pay $750,000 to Urbanski’s wife for loss of marital relations and $1.3 million to Aaron Cudworth, another strip club employee who was shot. Urbanski called the jury’s verdict “a little bit of justice that’s long overdue.”
Jones pleaded no contest to misdemeanor conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct in the incident, which began when Jones set off a melee in the club by throwing dollar bills around and then going after strippers who picked up the money. However, he denied that he had anything to do with the shooting outside the club afterward.
Jones is set to make a base salary of $950,000 for the Bengals this year.
