Las Vegas Police issue arrest warrants for Jones and two other members of his entourage.
Wednesday June 20th
There was no way that the City of Las Vegas, the Sports betting capital of the world, and one of North America's most visited vacation destinations, was just going to sit back and let the likes of Pacman Jones, walk away free from what took place NBA All star weekend back in February.
No one is named as the shooter in the Las Vegas incident, police Capt. James Dillon said. The gunfire occurred Feb. 19 outside a club several blocks off the Las Vegas Strip near the end of NBA All-Star weekend. A bar employee was paralyzed and two others suffered less serious wounds.
Arrest warrants were issued Wednesday for Jones, Robert "Big Rob" Reid of Carson, Calif., and Sadia Morrison of New York, an aide to Clark County District Attorney David Roger said.
Jones, 23, of Franklin, Tenn., faces two counts of felony coercion stemming from allegations he bit a bar bouncer on the ankle and threatened to kill club employees, according to a criminal complaint filed in Las Vegas Justice Court.
Reid, 37, who police identify as Jones' bodyguard, faces one felony coercion charge alleging he attacked a bouncer who tried to restrain Jones.
Morrison, 25, faces charges including coercion, felony assault with a deadly weapon and battery stemming from allegations that she hit a bouncer in the head with a champagne bottle and attacked several other club employees with a chair and a stanchion.
