National Football League veteran cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was assaulted by an airport contract worker at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta Tuesday (July 10), resulting in the arrest of the worker, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.
Atlanta Police spokesman Jarius Daugherty says the incident happened in concourse B, when Jones confronted ABM Industries employee Frank Ragin on Tuesday night.
Words were exchanged between Jones and Ragin before Ragin punched Jones in the face, cutting the former Cincinnati Bengals player's eye, police said. Ragin also struck Jones' female companion, causing an injury to her hand. Both declined medical treatment. Mr. Ragin was determined to be the primary aggressor and was taken into custody.

Jones, 34, is unsigned. He played with the Cowboys in 2008 but was released after more off-field issues. Jones has always been a talented player, but a temperamental one on and off the field, which has led to some issues. From 2010-2017, Jones started 68 games and even made a Pro Bowl as a return man.
The player, 34, is now a free agent after the Bengals declined to pick up the option on his contract this off-season. Upon reaching a plea agreement, the National Football League suspended Jones for one game.
According to police, Jones was assaulted by an airport worker at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
