Former WVU football player Adam "Pacman" Jones has been ordered to pay $11 million in damages after two people were injured in a shooting outside a Las Vegas strip club in 2007.
A Nevada civil jury found Jones responsible for the shooting although he did not fire the trigger. It’s believed Jones ordered the shootings, which he has continually denied.
The club manager Tommy Urbanski and a former bouncer Aaron Cudworth were both injured. Urbanski is paralyzed from the waist down. The shootings took place after Jones and others were told leave the club.
Jones attorney says the Cincinnati Bengal doesn’t have that kind of money saying after Friday’s verdict "obviously it is a devastating amount for him financially."
Jones has played five years in the NFL and earlier this year signed another one-year contract with the Bengals for $950,000.
There’s been indication in recent months that Jones is trying to clean-up his image. He is scheduled to speak to rookies at meetings next week about his personal challenges.
