Tennessee Titans cornerback Pacman Jones is under investigation for suspicion of misdemeanor assault after a Tennessee State student accused him of spitting in her face at a nightclub early Thursday, according to Metro Police.
Jones (above) is accused of spitting in the face of Krystal Webb, 21, after a verbal exchange at Club Mystic on Second Avenue North. The incident occurred at 1 a.m. Thursday during a private party.
Metro Police spokesman Don Aaron said Webb told police Jones tried to dance with one of her friends, and Webb pulled her away. Jones then cursed and yelled at Webb, walked away, then returned and yelled again, at which time he spit in Webb’s face.
Efforts to reach Webb on Friday were unsuccessful. Jones declined comment, directing questions to his attorneys. Worrick Robinson, one of Jones’ attorneys, said his client wasn’t involved.
“I think there may be a case of mistaken identity here,” Robinson said. “It is my understanding that there were some girls involved at a private party at Club Mystic. I think Pacman was there for maybe an hour, but it was early. The girls had been involved in a verbal altercation with someone, but I don’t think it was Pacman Jones. There was an allegation that someone had spit on one of the girls, and Pacman, he did not spit on anybody.”
Robinson said Jones left the club around midnight because “he needed to get home.”
“Pacman has been trying to avoid any instances or confrontation with anybody,” Robinson said. “Unfortunately he seems to be an easy target for people to approach and make allegations against.”
