LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Suspended NFL player Adam "Pacman" Jones pleaded no contest today to a reduced charge in a Las Vegas strip club triple shooting that left a man paralyzed.
The Tennessee Titans cornerback took a plea deal that officials said will get him probation in return for his testimony about the gunman who opened fire outside the club.
Jones received one year of probation for agreeing not to contest a charge of conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.
Prosecutors dropped two charges of coercion, a felony carrying a possible sentence of one to six years in prison.
Clark County prosecutor Victoria Villegas has said authorities hope Jones can help identify the gunman.
No one has been charged in the shooting, and Las Vegas police have not linked Jones to the gunfire.
Police have instead called Jones the instigator of the melee.
