Judge: Pacman has been punished enough

MURFREESBORO (AP) -- A Tennessee judge has dismissed misdemeanor charges against suspended Titans player Adam "Pacman" Jones, agreeing with the prosecutor that Jones has been punished enough over the past year.

District Attorney General William Whitesell said at a hearing Thursday in Murfreesboro that Jones knows his behavior was inappropriate when he was arrested outside a nightclub in August 2006.

On Thursday Jones apologized to the court, and he has written an apology to the arresting officer.

Jones had reached a plea deal to avoid jail time on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct after he got into an argument, refused to leave the club and shouted profanities at officers.

The judged considered revoking that deal because Jones was charged with two felonies after a Las Vegas strip club melee.

Jones was suspended from the Tennessee Titans for all of last season following several arrests.
