LAS VEGAS (AP) Adam "Pacman" Jones is free on $20,000 bail. The suspended NFL cornerback surrendered to authorities in Las Vegas early this morning to face felony charges resulting from a strip club incident that preceded a triple shooting.
Jones is scheduled to return for a July 27th appearance in Las Vegas Justice Court, according to his lawyer. A booking photograph released by police shows the Tennessee Titans player has shed his distinctive dreadlocks for a more conservative look.
Jones' lawyer says his client will plead not guilty to two felony charges of coercion stemming from allegations he threatened to kill Minxx club employees and that he bit a bar bouncer.
If convicted, Jones faces a maximum of 12 years in prison and a ten-thousand-dollar fine.
The NFL has already suspended Jones for the 2007 season due to past legal difficulties. There's no word as to how that might be affected by the Las Vegas charges.
