Controversial NFL legend, Adam “Pacman” Jones, delivered a SERIOUS beatdown to an Atlanta Hartsfield–Jackson International Airport employee the other day and it was all caught on video. The 13 year NFL vet’ has a reputation out here in these streets for being a lil’ hot headed at times, but in this case, he was the farthest thing from it. It was actually the other way around.

What Had Happened Was…
Airport employee, Frank Ragin, was seen on video, harassing Pacman as he walked by. Although Pacman exchanged a few words with Ragin, he kept his cool, gripped his backpack and continued walking off from the verbal dispute. It was Ragin, who kept poppin’ off at the mouth as he followed behind Pacman, who was walking through one of the airport terminals. That’s when all HELL broke lose!
Ya’ know, there’s only so much yappin’ a person can take, therefore, Pacman briefly stalled to verbally check Ragin, after he kept shouting at him and causing unnecessary ruckus. By that time, Pacman’s female companion walked over to him and convinced him to calm down, but then Ragin -still wearing his orange airport vest- charged over to Pacman and hit him. MAN…why did he do that?!! Pacman- never being one to back down- immediately let that dude HAVE IT!
As patrons looked on in shock, Pacman delivered a flurry of blows to Ragin’s face and ultimately knocked him down to the ground. I guess dude learned his lesson that day, but the hilarious part is that even AFTER getting whooped, a dazed Ragin was still trying to talk trash to Pacman, as Pacman gathered up his backpack and belongings and went on about his merry way. Peep the violent exchange in the video below:
Following the altercation, cops showed up and arrested Frank Ragin, stating that he was the one who instigated the fight and Pacman was merely defending himself. Here’s what was reported:
Via TMZ: Officials tell TMZ Sports … Pacman confronted the man about the gesture and a verbal altercation broke out.”Mr. Ragin eventually struck Mr. Jones with a closed fist,” cops say … “causing a laceration to Mr. Jones’ face. … Mr. Jones then started to defend himself, causing Mr. Ragin to fall to the ground.”
During the fight, cops say Ragin also hit Pacman’s female companion — injuring her hand. Officials determined Ragin — NOT Pacman — was the primary aggressor and he was arrested for 2 counts of battery. Pacman and his friend declined medical treatment — but Ragin was transported to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries.
Moral of this story is, before one attempts to earn brownie points/bragging rights, by attacking a celebrity, he should first consider the possibility that said celeb’ may actually beat their a$$ for trying them! Just saying.
It’s great to see that Pacman kept a cool, level head, throughout the ordeal…until it was no longer practical, nor safe for him to do so. That, right there, ladies and gentlemen is true growth. How so? Because, in the past, Pacman has had his fair share of unfortunate legal run-ins.
In 2006 Adam “Pacman” Jones was arrested for disorderly conduct, following a nightclub dispute. In 2007 he was ordered to pay $11 million to three victims who were injured during a violent ruckus Pacman started at a Las Vegas strip club, which the NFL suspended him for the entire 2007 season over. Afterwards, he went years without problems, until January 2017, when he spent two days in jail for ‘obstructing official business, disorderly conduct, assault, and a felony charge of harassment with a bodily substance, which earned him a one-game suspension in the league.’ So again- GROWTH.
