Pacman Tackles Legal Issue, Has Tickets Dismissed

FRANKLIN, Tenn. -- Suspended NFL player Adam "Pacman" Jones resolved his least serious legal problem Friday when a judge dismissed three traffic citations against the Tennessee Titans cornerback.

"I knew the truth would come out in the end," Jones said after a hearing in Williamson County, the Nashville suburb where he owns a home.

Jones was pulled over the morning of June 10 in his orange Lamborghini sports car because the tags did not match the vehicle.

Sheriff's deputies said he had switched the plate from another vehicle he owns. He was cited with a registration violation, as well as a residency violation for having a Georgia license and failure to show proof of insurance.

Jones' attorney, Worrick Robinson, said the charges were dismissed because authorities had incorrect information about the registration and license. The officer who wrote the citation was in court but declined to say what information had been wrong.

The Titans cornerback is suspended for a year because of several serious legal issues since being drafted in 2005. He faces felony coercion charges in connection with a Feb. 19 fight and triple-shooting at a Las Vegas strip club.

Jones also faces a felony charge of obstruction stemming from a physical altercation in February 2006 with an officer on patrol in Fayetteville, Ga., but no trial date has been set.

Meanwhile, the troubled cornerback is trying his hand at wrestling.

He appeared on Spike TV Thursday night in a taped appearance to promote his Sunday night debut with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling on a pay-per-view event titled "Hard Justice."
