National Football League free agent Adam Jones was reportedly involved in a violent altercation at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta Tuesday night that ended with Jones knocking a man to the ground.

According to police, Jones was assaulted by an airport worker at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The two exchange shots until Pacman lands the knockdown blow with an overhand right, sending Ragin to the floor. The verbal spat turned physical when Ragin punched Jones. Ragin also struck Jones' female companion, causing an injury to her hand.

The airport employee was arrested on two counts of battery. TMZ Sports reports that cops responded shortly after the brawl and arrested Ragin on two counts of battery, claiming he was the instigator and Jones was simply defending himself. On August 25, 2006, during training camp, Jones was arrested in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for disorderly conduct and public intoxication.

Jones declined medical treatment, police said. The gunman said he followed Jones' orders. In 2012, a jury ordered Jones to pay $11 million in damages to the victims.

In a career blighted by off-the-field incidents, Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season and another six games in 2008, during which time he was dealt from the Titans to the Cowboys. In the end, the other guy falls onto his back before Jones is pulled away. Most recently, he played for the Cincinnati Bengals.
