I don't like their chances of collecting this. No way that this fool has 11 million for anyone to take away from him.

A Nevada jury has ruled that Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Adam "Pacman" Jones must pay $11.6 million to three plaintiffs for his role in a 2007 shooting incident at a Las Vegas strip club.
The Clark County jury on Friday awarded Thomas Urbanski $9.6 million in compensatory damages for a gunshot injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down, according to online court records. Urbanski was the manager of the Minxx club.
Aaron Cudwort, a bouncer at the club, was awarded $1 million in compensatory damages and $600,000 in punitive damages for injury in the shooting.
Urbanski's wife, Kathleen, was awarded $750,000 for loss of consortium.
The awards stem from an altercation in February 2007 when Jones, who was with the NFL's Tennessee Titans at the time, was in Las Vegas during the National Basketball Association's All-Star weekend.

Absolute bullshit. Adam didn't shoot anyone yet he is single-handedly responsible for paying out these 11 million dollars in damages? This ruling is being based completely off of his name.

If Pacman had never shown up at this place this dude wouldn't be paralyzed. He's got plenty of responsibility for what happened. What type of tool gets upset because another tool loses a settlement in court that he can't pay any how?

Look who tore himself away from his custom made Ray Allen blowup doll, long enough to make himself sound weirder than before.

Doesn't matter how much they want. Mr Jones doesn't have it and he's not going to be able to get it. I just read this article and while I don't care to do the math it sounds like he's earned slightly less than 10 million in his career (before taxes) and admits to blowing 5 or 6 million (I would assume after taxes), That doesn't leave much. Actually that doesn't seem to leave anything.

That's what happens when someone you employ do something that puts you at risk. Shooting a dude so that he's professor xavier'd leaves your employer, since you are working for him financially exposed.

AI got sued when his bodyguard beat up some guy at a bar.
