In an absolutely stunning report, ESPN's John Barr went on television today and said that Adam "Pacman" Jones, who has just been released by the Dallas Cowboys, was connected to another nightclub shooting in 2007, in addition to the one that took place in Las Vegas during NBA All-Star Weekend.
The top sports headlines of the day
"While under NFL suspension in 2007, Pacman Jones was the man behind a shooting that followed a dispute inside a nightclub," Barr reported. "There are also allegations that he offered to pay an accused murderer to do this shooting."
Barr made clear that he was not referring to the infamous "make it rain" incident in Las Vegas in February of 2007, which left a man paralyzed and got Jones suspended.
"The information that we have relates to an incident four months after that, while Jones was on suspension," Barr said.
It is not clear whether the Cowboys' decision to cut ties with Jones today is an effort to head off the bad publicity that is sure to come from ESPN's report. The ESPN show Outside the Lines will go into more depth about the latest allegations about Jones on Sunday.
