Man Convicted Of Las Vegas Shootings Sentenced To Prison

Arvin Kenti Edwards, who pled guilty to one count of attempted murder, was sentenced to four to 10 years in prison for a Las Vegas shooting incident in 2007 that left three wounded, including Tommy Urbanski, who was paralyzed from the waist down. The incident is largely known in the NFL because of its connection with the man formerly known as Pacman Jones.

Authorities said the Minxx strip club fracas, which occurred during the NBA All-StaQr Weekend, was triggered by Jones. The current Cincinnati Bengal showered strippers with hundreds of dollar bills as they danced. The act, known as "making it rain," was intended as a visual effect. The fight erupted when strippers began picking up the cash. Jones and his entourage were kicked out of the club, and the shootings occurred minutes later.

Jones was sentenced to probation, facing an extremely turbulent path back into the NFL. When Jones arrived in Cincinnati, he wanted a break from his history, ditching the nickname Pacman for his first name Adam. For the most part, his off-the-field issues appeared behind him, well on his way towards rebuilding an image he himself damaged.

As nice a respite as it might be, Jones is now facing charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for an incident in downtown Cincinnati in early July.

Jones, currently on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform, is expected to be ready for the regular season opener against the Cleveland Browns.
