NFL star Adam “Pacman” Jones has been ordered to pay approximately $11 million in damages to the victims of as a result of a 2007 club shooting in Las Vegas.
Jones was sued by two security guards who were shot outside the Minxx strip club during NBA All-Star weekend back in 2007.
According to reports things got extremely out of hand inside the club after Pacman made it rain with hundreds of dollars in singles. Allegedly, Jones got upset when one of the dancers began taking the money without his permission.
A fight ensued outside the club and three people were shot.The security guards sued Pacman over the shooting even though he was not the shooter.
Moments ago, a Nevada jury found Jones to be responsible for the shooting and awarded one of the security guards $1.3 million in damages. The other victim who was paralyzed from the waist down in the incident received $9.6 million.
The wife of one of the victims was also awarded a settlement of $750,000…for loss of marital relations….just wow.
Well if you haven’t…here goes.
Allegedly both Chris Brown and Drake, along with rapper Meek Mill attended Teyanna Taylor’s signing party at WIP Nightclub in New York. Witnesses say that both were hanging out in the V.I.P when Drake (allegedly) began pointing and yelling at Chris. After Chris threw some words back, the entourages of both parties got involved and a shoving match ensued. Then…sh!t got real.
SOMEONE (no one is positive who), threw a bottle. The shoving match then turned to an all out brawl where several people including Chris Brown, NBA baller Tony Parker, and an innocent party-goer, were injured.
The fight was broken up (as were tables, mirrors , and lights), police were called , several members of both entourages were treated for injuries…but no arrests were made.
Below are pics of the aftermath of the fight including a pic of Chris Brown’s security guard who suffered what looks to be a serious head injury.
