The Cincinnati Bengals clobbered the New York Jets 49-9 on Sunday, and Pacman Jones had his first pick-six in nearly seven years in the win, but apparently that wasn’t enough to keep the troubled defensive back happy.
According to the New York Daily News, Jones — who was suspended for the entire 2007 season after several run-ins with the law and was just cleared earlier this month of charges that he assaulted a woman at a bar — got a little hot and bothered with David Nelson, to the point where he threatened the Jets wide receiver during the game.
“I’m going to find out where you live,” Jones told Nelson, per a Daily News source, “and come and get you.”
The confrontation was apparently part of a fourth-quarter skirmish that was sparked by a series of alleged cheap shots on the part of Nelson, the fourth-year player out of Florida.
“(Nelson) was playing dirty,” Jones told Bengals.com. “He cut me like four times after the play. Thank God I took my medicine today, I guess, and I didn’t go off. Hopefully he’ll get fined. At least three fines. There were three real cheap shots after the play.”
Jones evidently didn’t specify what he was planning to do once he acquires Nelson’s address. Maybe he was simply planning on going to his house and giving him a hundred bucks to help him pay the fines he’s calling for. Whatever the case, Jones should probably clarify, lest his reputation take yet another hit.
