TMZ has posted a new surveillance video that has footage of an altercation that allegedly shows NFLstar Adam “Pacman” Jones of the Cincinnati Bengals hitting a woman in the head outside of a Cincinnati nightclub. This appears to have been his response to the woman pouring a drink on him.
Pacman claims he was “protecting himself” during the altercation outside of the club and it looks like the woman did make the first physical move. The two seemed to exchange words but the video does not pick those words up.
The 1:oo minute mark is where all the drama jumps off, check it out!
The female summarily filed a police report and accused Jones of assaulting her. Jones turned himself in today. Pacman took to his Twitter account and tweeted the following statement,
Just got arrestedfor protecting myself, I will not let this break me or change what I have work so hard for ….
The rich keep getting richer. Aging rap star Shawn “Jay Z” Carter, 45, will ink a $20 million smartphone sponsorship contract with industry giant Samsung in the coming weeks, according to a Page Six report.
Saumsung has overtaken Apple in total sales of smartphones, causing Apple stock to nosedive 40% since December 2012.
Jay-Z is about to ink a hugely lucrative deal with Samsung Mobile, sources tell Page Six. The contract is said to be worth as much as $20 million. One source said, “The eight-figure deal will be inked in the next few weeks, and is the biggest of its kind. You can speculate that he’ll want to develop some kind of new music-streaming service to promote his acts and music on mobile devices.” Source
Jay Z drew criticism last week for partying with a young WNBA player while his wife, Beyonce, was busy on tour in Europe. Jay Z gifted Skylar Diggins with a $35K Mercedes Benz after signing the former Notre Dame star to a sports management contract with Roc Nation.
Beyonce summoned Jay Z to Europe to explain his actions. The two appeared together onstage in London on Saturday, but their interactions appeared stiff and awkward.
As expected Diggins, 22, is struggling on the court due to all the off-court distractions caused by Jay Z’s interest in her. Diggins and her WNBA team, the Tulsa Shock are 0-4 this season.
David “Deacon” Jones, a Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end for the Los Angeles Rams who went on to appear as an actor and a TV pitchman for Miller Lite, has died. He was 74.
Jones’ death from natural causes at his home in Southern California was announced Monday night by Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen, whose father, the late George Allen, coached Jones for five seasons with the Rams and for a season with the Redskins.
Jones, at 6-foot-4 and 272 pounds, played with the Rams from 1961-71 and teamed with Lamar Lundy, Rosey Grier and Merlin Olsen to form the imposing defensive line known as the Fearsome Foursome back when the team played in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. His specialty was sacking the quarterback in an era when sacks were not an official statistic (he unofficially recorded 22 of them in a season twice with the Rams and would rank among the all-time leaders in the category). In fact, he reportedly coined the term “sack” to define tackling the quarterback for a loss.
The Los Angeles’ Rams’ “Fearsome Foursome” in 1964: Lamar Lundy, Merlin Olsen, Rosey Grier and Deacon Jones, who started alongside each other from 1963 to 1966.
Jones played himself in a memorable 1972 episode of “The Odd Couple” when Felix Unger (Tony Randall) tried to pair him and Oscar Madison (Jack Klugman) for a commercial. He also appeared in the TV series “Bewitched,” “Banacek,” “The Fall Guy” and “Good vs. Evil” and in the 1978 films “Heaven Can Wait” and “The Norseman.” Jones also made his mark in Miller Lite TV spots. In one, he recites a poem about his love for the beer, sending patrons fleeing from a bar when he concludes with, “Blue is a violet, red is a rose, and if you don’t believe me, I’m going to break your nose.” [Watch below.]
A native of Eatonville, Fla., Jones was drafted by the Rams in the 14th round of the 1961 NFL Draft after playing in college at South Carolina State and Mississippi Vocational College. He was traded to the San Diego Chargers in 1972 and finished up his pro career with Washington in 1974. He was named to the Pro Bowl eight times and inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1980 during his first year of eligibility. He missed just five games as a pro due to injury. “Deacon Jones was one of the greatest players in NFL history. Off the field, he was a true giant,” the Redskins’ Allen said in a statement. “[Jones’] passion and spirit will continue to inspire those who knew him. He was cherished member of the Allen family. … I will always consider him my big brother.”
Former NBA star Mookie Blaylock was charged with driving on a suspended license and failing to stay in his lane in a head-on crash that killed a woman outside Atlanta, police said Sunday.
Jonesboro Police Chief Franklin Allen said authorities wanted to talk to Blaylock, 46, before deciding whether he should face more serious charges. Officers had not been able to speak with Blaylock because of his injuries but they hope to do so as early as Monday, the chief said.
”The last update I got was that he is awake but groggy,” Allen said.
Blaylock was driving an SUV that collided Friday with a van after crossing the center line in the Atlanta suburb of Jonesboro, police said. The crash killed Monica Murphy, 43. Her husband was driving the van and suffered a broken ankle.
Blaylock was seriously injured, but a spokeswoman at Atlanta Medical Center said his condition was upgraded to fair Sunday. He was initially in critical condition.
Allen said talking to Blaylock would be the first step in determining what caused the accident. The chief said those discussions and talks with prosecutors would determine whether Blaylock will face more charges.
Blaylock was a first-round draft pick by the New Jersey Nets out of Oklahoma in 1989. He played for the Atlanta Hawks between 1992 and 1999, appeared in the 1994 NBA All-Star game and had his best season in 1996-97, averaging 17.4 points and 5.9 assists. Blaylock also played for Golden State.

This is how Dennis Rodman showed up to last night’s live season finale of “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.”
The former NBA player, 52, was only a spectator at the event, after exiting the contest in April.
In true drag queen fashion, boyfriend made sure he grabbed the attention last night, sporting full make-up, massive eyelash extensions, a bleached blond mohawk – and a jacket covered with palm trees and half-naked Santa Clauses on water skis.
Ever since his divorce from Evelyn Lozada, Chad Johnson’s career seems to be on a downhill spiral that no one could have imagined just a few years ago when he was rolling in millions as one of the most talked about players in the NFL. Just last week, he was in court, asking a judge to lower his child support payments because he’s not making anywhere close to the money he used to make, and today he was arrested in Florida.
According to reports, a Broward County judge ordered Chad to jail today after he failed to report to his probation officer twice and he failed to show proof that he was attending his domestic violence classes. He is currently on probation for headbutting Evelyn last year during an argument.
Meanwhile, although Chad was pulling in $66,000 per month last year, according to his court documents, he is having a hard time making his child support payments. The drama with Ev resulted in him being kicked off the Miami Dolphins team and dropped from his endorsement deals, which drastically lowered his income. He is currently asking a judge to lower the $5,400 a month that he pays to one of his kids’ mothers, until he gets his financial footing back together. “Simply [I am] unemployed,” he said in court documents.
This is just sad and should be a huge wake up call for everyone to be more careful about the choices they make. Hopefully, he can get himself back together.
According to TMZ, New York Jets running back Michael Goodson was arrested early this morning in New Jersey after he was allegedly found to be in possession of a loaded handgun and some weed. According to cops,
“Goodson, was a passenger in an SUV that was parked along Route 80 in Denville, NJ and both Goodson and the driver of the vehicle appeared WASTED when they approached the vehicle.”
Michael Goodson was found to be in possession of weed (less than 50 grams) and he allegedly had a loaded .45 caliber gun and hollow-point bullets.
Anyone with any knowledge of hollow point bullets will tell you, they are used with the intent of doing the maximum about of damage possible. They expand upon impact and cause total chaos within the body of a human being that has been hit with one. It’s like ingesting a hand grande with the pin pulled out.
Cops say both Goodson and the driver were so intoxicated that they were both transported to a local hospital for treatment.
The driver of the SUV was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
They were released from the hospital into police custody and are both still there.
