Veteran cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was involved in an altercation at an Atlanta airport after an airport employee attacked him.

Per TMZ Sports, Jones was at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Tuesday night when Frank Ragin "made a gesture" toward him.

Jones, who fought back after some initial hesitation, told the woman to "watch out" before punching Ragin. Ragin also struck Jones' female companion, causing an injury to her hand.


In the video, Jones can be seen throwing punches after he is confronted by the airport employee wearing an orange vest.

Police determined that Ragin was the primary aggressor, and he was arrested on two counts of battery.

Jones' decade-plus long career has been plagued with controversy. In February of the following year, he was arrested for obstruction of justice following an incident at his Georgia home. Jones and his companion declined medical treatment. The gunman said he followed Jones' orders. In January of 2017, Jones was arrested after Cincinnati police say he assaulted a security guard in front of the Millennium Hotel. Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 National Football League season and a portion of the 2008 season. Jones has always been a talented player, but a temperamental one on and off the field, which has led to some issues. He missed the entire 2007 season for numerous violations of the NFL's personal conduct policy, including his involvement in a strip-club fight that left a man paralyzed.
