Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones will remain liable for $12.4 million in damages after the Nevada Supreme Court upheld a prior ruling in a case involving a Las Vegas shooting in 2007.

The Associated Press reports the decision was unanimous. Jones will now be forced to pay the damages to Tommy Urbanski, Urbanski's ex-wife, Kathy, and Aaron Cudworth, two of whom were doormen wounded in the incident:

The justices upheld a trial judge's decision to remove the NFL from the case, and rejected Jones' contention that damage awards for [Tommy] Urbanski and co-worker Aaron Cudworth didn't legally correspond to findings of liability.

It's also noted Jones was not the person who fired the gunshots that injured the men, one of whom was paralyzed. Instead, Las Vegas police alleged his actions inside a local strip club caused chaos that eventually led to the shooting, which made him liable.

Jones just completed his eighth season in the NFL.

The West Virginia product appeared in all 16 games for the Cincinnati Bengals, tallying 63 total tackles and three interceptions. He made six tackles in last week's playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Jones previously played for the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys.
