Deadline Set For 'Pacman' Jones To Turn Himself In To Las Vegas Nevada Authorities

Vegas police have given Adam "Pacman" Jones and the other two people charged in the Minxx strip club shooting until noon Pacific time on Friday to surrender or they "will hunt them down."

Vegas Police said they don't have any information on a scheduled time for surrender, and Pacman's Vegas attorney, Robert Langford isn't returning phone calls.

On Wednesday, the Las Vegas police charged suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones with two counts of felony coercion in connection with a fight that led to a strip club shooting in February.

Three people, including Jones, face felony charges in connection with the Minxx Gentlmen's Club melee that preceded a triple shooting, which paralyzed club manager Tommy Urbanski.

"He was the catalyst of my son getting shot," said Urbanski's father, Don Urbanski.

After all this time, police still don't know who pulled the trigger that night.

The police and Clark County District Attorney's Office charged stylist Sadia Morrison and bodyguard Robert Reid in connection with the Minxx melee.

"Mr. Jones is working with detectives to surrender on these charges, I'm sure the other individuals will surrender as well, if not, we'll go out and find them and arrest them," said Clark County District Attorney David Roger.

In Nevada, coercion means someone physically interfered with a person trying to do something they had a right or responsibility to do. During the Minxx fight, Roger said Jones attacked a security guard and "swung his fist." Jones is also accused of biting him on the ankle, trying to stop him from breaking up the fight.

Soon after the melee inside the Minxx, someone fired shots outside. One of those bullets hit Urbanski.

In an interview Wednesday, Urbanski's father said he doesn't understand Jones.

"My first reaction, how stupid can somebody be, to put himself in this position," he said.

No one was charged for the shooting, but Las Vegas police want to talk with a man they have identified as a person of interest, hoping that he knows something about who pulled the trigger that night.

"This case isn't over by a long shot," Roger said.

If convicted in Nevada, Jones faces up to six years in prison and a $5,000 fine on each charge.

The felony charges could affect the athlete's charges of public drunkenness and disorderly conduct in Murfreesboro.

The Rutherford County District Attorney Office's will take another look at Jones' case before July 5.
