Pacman Jones Punches Woman Outside Bar, Claims Self-Defense (Video)
The incident he got into last week is pretty tame by comparison. There’s no strip club, no guns, and his entourage seems to consist of just one other person. But don’t tell the woman he punched in the face that I said the incident was “pretty tame.” She probably thinks it’s kind of a big deal.
The whole thing went down at a bar called the Tin Roof last Wednesday after the Reds-Rockies game at Great American Ballpark. And—surprise, surprise—the account of the altercation provided by Pacman and his agent differ from the account provided by…the video surveillance camera.
You see, Pacman said (via Twitter, of course) that he was just protecting himself. Then his agent, Peter Schaffer, elaborated. He told USA Today that Jones was outside the bar when a couple of female patrons asked him for a photo as he was leaving. Pacman declined—”because he’s married and the last thing he wants is a picture with two women showing up on Twitter or something”—and then somebody threw a bottle at him. So he turned around and slapped the person, even though he had “no idea what’s going on or who threw the bottle.”
Unfortunatley for Jones and his agent, the Tin Roof has a video camera outside, and that lousy snitch told a different story. In that story (you know, the true one), for some reason one of the women started pouring her beer on Jones while he was standing there talking to her, so he punched her right in the kisser.
Take a look:
Was Jones being assaulted? Sure, I guess having a chick dump a beer on you counts as assault. But it was not an assault that warranted a punch to the face. And besides, in my experience, chicks generally don’t just dump drinks on you for no reason at all.
But hey, what do I know?
