A Good Day in Court For Jones

It was a good news day for Titans suspended corner Pacman JonesJones as he sat in a courtroom Thursday.  A Rutherford County judge has denied the district attorney’s petition to reinstate misdemeanor charges against Jones, who had struck a deal in January to have disorderly conduct and public intoxication charges dismissed pending six months of good behavior.
 
Assistant District Attorney Thomas Parkerson filed a petition on June 22 asking the judge to reinstate charges against Jones, who curently faces felony coercion charges stemming from a Feb. 19 shooting incident at a Las Vegas strip club.  “Being indicted on felony charges does not constitute good conduct,” Parkerson said.  Outside the courtroom Thursday, Jones denied allegations that he bit a security guard in the ankle.  “I think we’ll have to wait to see what happens in Las Vegas courts,” Judge David Loughry said, holding a Las Vegas police affidavit.  “These are only allegations.  Mr. Jones has not been proven guilty of anything at this point.” Jones is scheduled to appear in Nevada courts on July 23.
