Airport employee arrested after Adam Pacman Jones altercation

ATLANTA — This time it seems trouble found Adam Pacman Jones instead of the other way around.

An altercation Tuesday night at Hartsfield Airport resulted in facility employee Frank Ragin being charged with two counts of battery after he exchanged words with Jones and aggressively pursued the 11-year NFL veteran.

Jones, 34, is currently a free agent after the Cincinnati Bengals declined to pick up his option for 2018.

In a career blighted by off-the-field incidents, Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season and another six games in 2008, during which time he was dealt from the Titans to the Cowboys. But Dallas released Jones based on his alleged involvement in a strip club shooting in Atlanta and he played the 2009 season in Canada.

He also received a one-game suspension in 2017 for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy after spitting at a jail nurse in Cincinnati and telling an offer, “I hope you die tomorrow.”

The former West Virginia standout, drafted No. 6 overall in the 2005 NFL draft, has appeared in 139 games and made 16 interceptions
