Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has been ordered to pay $11.6 million in damages after three people were shot following an incident at a Las Vegas strip club in 2007, according to TMZ.
Jones reportedly threw hundreds of dollars at strippers in the club during NBA All-Star weekend in 2007, and then, got upset when they took the money without asking him.
Three people, including security guards Aaron Cudworth and Thomas Urbanski, were shot outside Minxx strip club. Although Jones wasn't the shooter, Cudworth and Urbanski sued him after the incident.
On Friday, a Nevada jury ordered Jones to pay $1.3 million in damages to Cudworth and $9.6 million to Urbanski. Urbanski was paralyzed from the waist down in the shooting.
Urbanski's wife also sued Jones for loss of marital relations and was awarded $750,000.
Jones pleaded no contest to misdemeanor conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct back in 2007 and was ordered to serve one year of probation and perform 200 hours of community service.
Jones was involved in more incidents after the 2007 shooting but has stayed out of trouble with the Bengals. Nonetheless, the court proceedings on Friday didn't exactly lighten the recent negativity surrounding the Bengals.
Jones has played in 13 games for the Bengals in the past two seasons, compiling 41 tackles, one interception, one defensive touchdown and one forced fumble.
The Bengals are hoping Jones can now put the past behind him for good and get back to playing at a high level on the field.
