'Pacman' Gets Probation for Role in Vegas Melee

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Cincinnati Bengals corner Adam "Pacman" Jones has been sentenced to probation and 200 hours of community service under a plea deal for his role in a 2007 strip club melee in Las Vegas.

Clark County courts spokeswoman Mary Ann Price said Jones received a suspended sentence on Thursday and was also ordered to receive anger management counseling. The sentence requires Jones to undergo random drug testing.

Jones told the Las Vegas Sun after the sentencing that he's glad to finally have the case behind him.

Prosecutors say the shooting left a club employee paralyzed and two others wounded.

Jones pleaded no contest in 2007 to a gross misdemeanor of conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct. His deal reduced two felony coercion charges. Jones has denied having a role in the shooting.
