Airport Employee Arrested After Fight With Pacman Jones

Airport Employee Arrested After Fight With Pacman Jones

The incident happened around 10 p.m.

According to police, airport worker Frank Ragin "made a gesture at Jones" that launched an argument between the two near gate B6 at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Tuesday night. Jones confronted Ragin regarding the gesture, and the two exchanged words.

Police arrested Ragin for starting the fight, having determined that Jones only fought in self defense, TMZ reports.

Jones' party reportedly passed on medical treatment, but the assailant was transported to a local hospital for his injuries. Jones ultimately knocks him to the ground with a punch.

Police said Jones kicked and used head-butting as he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a hotel employee. On August 25, 2006, during training camp, Jones was arrested in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for disorderly conduct and public intoxication. The gunman said he followed Jones' orders.

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.

Most recently, Jones pleaded guilty to obstructing police following a January 2017 altercation in downtown Cincinnati. Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 National Football League season and a portion of the 2008 season.

Jones has yet to be signed to a contract for the upcoming season, and it remains to be seen if his latest run in with trouble will deter teams from signing him.
