LAS VEGAS -- A bouncer who was shot and said his left ankle was bitten by Adam "Pacman" Jones in a strip club melee sued the suspended NFL player and other members of his entourage for damages Monday.

The suit for an unspecified amount was filed with the Clark County District Court on behalf of Aaron Cudworth three days after the Tennessee Titans cornerback surrendered in Las Vegas on two felony charges of coercion and posted $20,000 in bail.

Facts about the Feb. 19 melee and shooting, which paralyzed another strip club bouncer and wounded one other person, were confirmed in charges that the district attorney filed against Jones on Wednesday, said Cudworth's lawyer, Richard Schonfeld.

"When they made their filing, it confirmed what I was looking for," Schonfeld said. The civil case can proceed independently of the criminal trial, he said.

Jones' Las Vegas attorney Robert Langford said he had not seen the suit and declined comment late Monday. A message left after business hours at the Atlanta office of one of Jones' attorneys, Manny Arora, wasn't immediately returned.

The melee at Minxx Gentleman's Club during NBA All-Star weekend was sparked after Jones threw cash from a plastic trash bag on stage to "make it rain" for dancers as tips, according to the suit.

When two dancers began to fight over the cash at about 4:30 a.m., Jones grabbed one by the hair and punched her in the face two or three times, the suit says.

Cudworth wrapped his arms around Jones from behind, but let go when the club manager was escorting Jones outside. Jones jumped back on stage, vowing not to leave, cursing Cudworth and threatening to kill him, the suit says.

After Cudworth again tried to restrain Jones, the suit says he was knocked over by Jones' 400-pound bodyguard, Robert Reid, 37, of Compton, Calif. Jones took a swing at Cudworth, who restrained Jones, the suit says. That's when Jones bit Cudworth on the ankle, according to the suit.

Jones escaped, and when Cudworth pursued him, Sadia Morrison, 25, of New York, allegedly smashed a champagne bottle over the bouncer's head, cutting him.

Cudworth finally forced Jones outside, where he says Jones threatened to shoot him and acted as if he was reaching for a weapon in his waistband. The suit says a witness heard Jones tell another member of his group, "Let's smoke this fool."

Later, the suit alleges that a member of Jones' group fired a black semiautomatic handgun five or six times toward Cudworth, hitting him in the chest and left arm, causing permanent injury. Another bouncer, Thomas Urbanski, was shot in the left hand and the torso, and was left paralyzed from the waist down. A female club patron was wounded in the head.

Cudworth is suing Jones, Reid, Morrison and others for assault, battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Schonfeld said Cudworth underwent "multiple surgeries" and lost wages as a result.

Jones, 23, who has been suspended by the NFL for the 2007 season, is scheduled to return to Las Vegas on July 23 to face criminal charges that carry a maximum of 12 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if he is convicted.

Now are these the charges that led to his original suspension or is this a while other incident? I thought one of his body guards shot and killed someone? :dunno:

:smh: I think it's time the new Sheriff in town really :flex: Pac Man needs to be gone for good just to send a message to the other thugs in the league... Oh yeah... and while the Commish is writing up Pac-Man's "Pete Rose Paperwork" he should go ahead and get Tanks ready too! All these "professional" athletes are really getting on my nerves and putting a bad taste in my mouth... I know it's only a handful of players but we tend to group them all in the same category and one persons actions tend to over shadow the rest of the league.

If Darwin was still alive, he'd wonder how Pacman has made it this long.

The Victim of A Cowardly Act
by Rick Reilly

Hey, Titans cornerback Pacman Jones. I noticed you took out a full-page ad in The Tennessean, saying that when the NFL suspended you for the entire 2007 season, on April 10, it was "one of the worst moments of my life."
And I just wanted you to know you're lucky. Because Tommy Urbanski is having a helluva time deciding what the worst moment of his lif is.
Urbanski is the 6'6, 340 pound former pro-wrestler who was shot three times and left paralyzed below the waist shortly after the melee you helped whip up at the Vegas strip club where he worked....................

The above is part of Rick Reilly's Editorial from Sports Illustrated a few weeks ago and to note that more than one person was permanently injured from the stupidity of "Dumbass" Jones.

The dumbass goes into a strip club, gets drunk and throws $100 bills in the air. HMMMM let me get this straight, strip club, alcohol and money....Punkman is a retard for thinking he was going to get his money back after throwing it up in the air. So a stripper and a few other people started grabbing for the money....then Punkman realizing what he has just done grabs the first person he sees, go figure its a woman and starts beating on her. Notice Punkman didn't grab a dude and start beating on him, he grabbed a woman, but when a man did come close, he got shot, didn't get a beating but got shot by Punkman and his crew. If it looks like a Kitty, smells like a Kitty and acts like a Kitty..(you guys know what I'm tryin to say)..ITS A KITTY!!!! Punkman doesn't deserve to be walking around free in our society let alone have the privilege of playing in the NFL.
