NFL football player Adam ''Pacman'' Jones won't face jail time in Nevada based on his conduct in a Cincinnati bar scuffle last summer, the district attorney in Las Vegas said Tuesday. Instead, the 28-year-old Cincinnati Bengals cornerback will be expected to perform 75 more hours of community service on top of the 200 hours he was ordered to perform following his no contest plea in a 2007 Las Vegas strip club melee that left three people wounded, Clark County District Attorney David Roger said. Roger said he conferred with prosecutors in Cincinnati and reviewed allegations that Jones tried to pull away from police after he was accused of shouting profanities in a Cincinnati bar in July. Jones was already under a judge's order to stay out of trouble as part of his February sentencing in Las Vegas. He now faces trial in Ohio on misdemeanor disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges. ''Even if there were a conviction in that case, I don't think we could convince a judge here to revoke probation,'' Roger said Tuesday. Defense attorney Robert Langford said Jones completed his initial 200 hours of community service working with Special Olympics of Northern Kentucky near Cincinnati. His probation is due to end Feb. 23. The agreement was first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The Las Vegas case stems from a shooting during a strip club brawl on NBA All-Star weekend in February 2007 that left a club employee paralyzed and two other people wounded. Police alleged Jones incited the melee by throwing wads of dollar bills from a large plastic bag toward a stage, then becoming angry when the dancers picked up the money. Jones and his entourage were ejected from the club, and police say Jones met briefly with the accused shooter, Arvin Kenti Edwards, before Edwards opened fire with a handgun outside the club. Jones denied having a role in the shooting. He pleaded an equivalent of no contest to misdemeanor conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct. Two felony coercion charges were dropped. Edwards, 33, is serving four to 10 years in prison for his so-called Alford plea to attempted murder with use of a deadly weapon. The plea avoided trial and spared Edwards an admission of guilt but acknowledged that prosecutors could prove the case against him.
