New Development on the Pacman front:
"A Minxx topless cabaret bouncer (Henry Jenkins) places Adam "Pacman" Jones in the middle of the violent melee Feb. 19 that resulted in the shooting of a club security guard, but fails to say the troubled NFL player made a death threat, according to his statement to police.
This is a different account than what was provided by another bouncer at the bar early on in the investigation.
But Jenkins' memory was different. Although he made it clear he felt threatened by Jones, and at one point incorrectly believed the football player was hiding a weapon behind his back, he noted that his co-worker Aaron Cudworth wielded a baton-like weapon in an effort to break up the fight."And then Cudworth's like, 'Don't even,' you know, 'Don't even try to bring that out,'" Jenkins recalled. "'Cause, 'cause see Aaron was pretty close. He goes 'I'll whack you in the knee.'" Although the bouncers implored Jones and his friends to "relax," they failed to quickly break up a series of hair-pulling skirmishes between Minxx dancers and women who had accompanied Jones.
Clearly, while Jones' may have been wrong for being involved in the melee, this paints a different picture. Threatening to beat the knees of a pro football player with a weapon? That certainly doesn't sound like a threat that will calm the situation, does it?
"We've never once said he wasn't in the middle of the melee," Langford (Jones' attorney) said. "I'm not saying he's pure as the driven snow in all this. But Jenkins heard him say, 'Stop disrespecting my women.' That's not a death threat. He heard it all. This is their employee's statement to the police the morning after the incident."
So, essentially, we are getting two different accounts from bouncers involved on what happened that night.
The real question: Why is this just coming out NOW?
