Video released of brawl that led to ‘Pacman’ Jones’ arrest

Wild footage shows part of an Ohio barroom brawl that ended with former NFL star Adam “Pacman” Jones arrested for allegedly battering a bouncer unconscious.

Video obtained by TMZ shows several people fighting in Cincinnati’s Clutch OTR bar around 1 a.m. Monday — with a number of barstools getting flung around the room.

“F–k with me. I dare you!” someone holding one of the stools was filmed screaming at the retired Cincinnati Bengals cornerback.

The person who shot the video told TMZ that the brawl started after Pacman, 37, and his entourage left the bar and were refused re-entry.

“Pacman pushed his way back in and it started getting aggressive,” the witness claimed. “Pacman knocked the security guy out then proceeded to kick the guy in the head multiple times,” the witness said, with the filming only starting after that alleged beating.

The former NFL star was arrested as he was leaving the bar in his Rolls-Royce and charged with misdemeanor assault.

After bonding out of jail, Pacman went on The Pat McAfee Show — and claimed the fight was actually a feud between bouncers at rival clubs.

He insisted he did not even see the security guy get knocked unconscious because he had his back turned while talking to the DJ.

“When I turned around they [were] already on the floor so I separated them,” he said. “That’s when punches, chairs, whatever they was throwing,” he said, saying he got hit by a chair in the brawl.

“I did what I needed to do,” he said, saying he wasn’t “boosting or bragging” — but complaining that he was “the only one that got charged with anything.”

“I’m done fighting, bro — unless anyone wanna pay me,” he said, smiling as he advertised his willingness to “fight any celebrity” in an organized boxing match, calling out YouTube star Jake Paul.

Pacman insisted he was not drunk during the fight, saying that “the reason why I’m not drinking out in public is because of situations like this.”
