Posted Oct. 9, 2008 – Dallas police were reportedly called to break up a fight between troubled Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones and his bodyguards at a Dallas hotel Tuesday evening, according to multiple sources.

No charge was filed against Jones, and neither the hotel nor the Cowboys would comment, reports the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

"I don't have any comment," Jones' agent, Worrick Robinson, who is based in Nashville, told the paper. "I don't have any knowledge that anything happened. I've done my due diligence and I'm not satisfied that anything happened with Adam Jones. I know there are rumors. I haven't put any stock into any of these rumors except they are just rumors."

However, Robinson said he did talk to Jones.

"I'm not going to comment on our conversation," he said. "I don't believe anything occurred."

KTVT/Channel 11 first reported the story, and sources confirmed it to the Star-Telegram. Jones was attending a party at the Joule Hotel in Dallas on Tuesday evening, according to sources. Among the other patrons were several Cowboys players as well as rap star Ludacris and Academy Award-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg, who are both in the area filming a movie.

Adam Jones and his bodyguards got into a fight that resulted in a broken mirror in a bathroom, according to the sources. This was the second time in the past couple of weeks Jones and a bodyguard had gotten into a fight, a source said.

"We have no comment on the report," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Wednesday night. Any type of off-the-field news involving Jones is exactly what the Cowboys were trying to avoid when they recently told him to keep a low profile.  Earlier in the day, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who suspended Jones for the entire 2007 season and then reinstated him in August, dropped by Valley Ranch for a visit.

This is the latest in a long line of off-the-field incidents for Jones. He has been arrested six times and involved in a dozen incidents that required police involvement since 2005. Some of his offenses include possession of marijuana, speeding, public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
