LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Suspended NFL player Adam "Pacman" Jones will face two felony charges in a strip club melee that preceded a triple shooting in February, Las Vegas police and the Clark County District Attorney's office said Wednesday.

Two other people previously identified by police as friends of the troubled Tennessee Titans cornerback also will face felony charges in the fracas inside the Minxx club, police said in a statement.


No one is named in the shooting that occurred later outside the club and left a bar employee paralyzed and two others with minor injuries, police Capt. James Dillon said.

Warrants were issued for the arrests of Jones, Robert Reid of Carson, Calif., and Sadia Morrison of New York, Dillon said.

The 23-year-old Jones, of Franklin, Tenn., faces two counts of felony coercion stemming from allegations he threatened to kill club employees and bit a bar bouncer on the ankle, according to a criminal complaint filed in Clark County District Court.

The 37-year-old Reid faces one felony coercion charge alleging he attacked a bouncer who tried to restrain Jones.

The 24-year-old Morrison faces charges including felony assault with a deadly weapon and battery stemming from allegations that she hit the bouncer in the head with a bottle and attacked several other club employees with a chair.

Coercion is the act of threatening or physically interfering with a person trying to do something that he or she has a right and responsibility to do.

The charges are slightly different from those police sought in March against Jones, Reid and Morrison. Clark County District Attorney David Roger declined to file those charges, asking police for more information and to identify a shooter.

"The investigation continued and additional evidence was gathered, that's why it's different," Dillon said. "These are complicated acts and charges. We've worked closely with the district attorney."

A Las Vegas lawyer representing the three was expected to contact police to arrange their surrender, an aide to Roger said.

The lawyer, Robert Langford, did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

Police said the Feb. 19 fracas broke out inside the club, Minxx, several blocks off the Las Vegas Strip when dancers on stage were showered with thousands of dollar bills near the end of NBA All-Star weekend.

Does this mean that it's over for Pacman?

At least in the near future. He'll be suspended again, and I'm sure if he can keep his nose clean for a year or so, someone is going to take a chance on him. After all, Lawrence Phillips got a 2nd and 3rd chance in the NFL despite the fact that it was irresistable to beat on his baby momma(s).

It seems that you could potentially rein in Pacman's antics if he plays in a city that doesn't have any strip clubs. Even Green Bay has 2, so I think he's in trouble.

At the end of the day the question is did "Pacman" ever really have enough talent to merit this much media attention? More to the point should we take someone who seems to prefer to be called Pacman seriously? Probably not.

Naw DB....the real question at the end of the day is why do men who are already in trouble, throwing away millions of dollars and a life of leisure just to watch skags dance around a metal pole.
