Pacman pays debt; D.A. dropping criminal case

A Las Vegas lawyer for Adam “Pacman” Jones gave the district attorney’s office a check this afternoon to settle the suspended NFL player’s $20,000 gambling debt with Caesars Palace.

And District Attorney David Roger said he would recall a request for a warrant to arrest Jones on fraud and theft charges and close a criminal case against him.

The total amount of the check was $21,625, which included processing fees to the district attorney’s bad check unit, which was conducting the investigation, Roger said.

As the Sun first reported this morning, Roger’s bad check unit sought the arrest warrant after it had been unable to get Jones to pay back the money.

Harrah’s Entertainment, which owns Caesars Palace, asked the district attorney to pursue a criminal investigation in February after it couldn’t get Jones to repay the $20,000 in markers.
