Adam Pac Man Jones Ordered to Pay $11 Million for 2007 Las Vegas Strip Club Shooting
In February 2007, then NBA held their annual All-Star game at UNLV’s Thomas and Mack Center. Usually a college venue would be deemed too small for such a large NBA event, however, the league wanted to test Las Vegas’ ability to hold a large event such as their All-Star Game. While many who travelled to Southern Nevada for the NBA mid-season classic enjoyed their trips, some significant incidents brought Sin City’s ability to hold such a large event into question.
One of the major incidents from that weekend was a shooting at Minxx Gentlemen’s Club on Winn Road in Las Vegas. Adam Pac Man Jones, then a cornerback for the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, and hip-hop artist Nelly, in cooperation with management and a number of the club’s dancers began to “make it rain.” “Making it rain” is a visual effect where hundreds of one dollar bills are thrown into the air and the bills flutter as they fall to the ground. Management of the club then told the dancers to pick up the cash and that’s when Mr. Jones became enraged. The former West Virginia Mountaineer then assaulted one of the dancers and subsequently his entourage began to fight with the club’s security staff. Jones and his entourage left the club, but later, one individual, identified by the club’s manager, returned and began firing, striking two security guards, including former wrestler Tommy Urbanski. Mr. Urbanski was paralyzed from the shooting from the waist down.
