He competed in football, basketball, and track at Westlake High School in Georgia.
He was suspended for the 2007 NFL season for his involvement in a nightclub shooting in Las Vegas. His father was killed in a robbery in 1991, so he was raised by his mother Deborah Jones and his grandmother Christine Jones.
Reid, 37, who police identify as Jones’ bodyguard, faces one felony coercion charge alleging he attacked a bouncer who tried to restrain Jones.
“The investigation continued and additional evidence was gathered, that’s why it’s different,” Dillon said. We’ve worked closely with the district attorney.” A Las Vegas lawyer representing the three was expected to contact police to arrange their surrender, the aide to Roger said.
The lawyer, Robert Langford, did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
As noted by ESPN, Jones “allegedly pushed a security guard, poked him in the eye and refused to comply with law enforcement officers.”Jones was originally hit with misdemeanor charges of assault, disorderly conduct and obstructing official business and a felony count of harassment with bodily substance after allegedly spitting on a nurse in jail.
However, most of the charges were dropped and he served two days in jail for obstruction.
Coercion is the act of threatening or physically interfering with a person trying to do something that he or she has a right and responsibility to do.
If convicted, Jones faces up to six years in prison and a ,000 fine on each charge.
Two other people police identify as part of the troubled Tennessee Titans cornerback’s entourage also will face felony charges in the fracas inside the Minxx club, Las Vegas police said in a statement.
Since Jones was drafted by the Titans in April 2005, he has been involved in 11 separate police investigations, including efforts by Atlanta police to question him about a shooting early Monday after a fight at an Atlanta strip club.
A police report says Jones was seen walking away from the strip club with a man wearing a baggy black T-shirt and blue jeans.
