Former Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was involved in an altercation at the Atlanta airport on Tuesday night, according to police.

The fight left Jones, who is currently a free agent, with a laceration on his face and resulted in the arrest of airport employee Frank Ragin, who “was determined to be the primary aggressor,” according to an incident summary report from the Atlanta Police Department.

Police said the fight took place near Gate B6 at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport after Ragin, who works for facility-management company ABM, made some sort of gesture toward Jones. The two exchanged words until Ragin “struck Mr. Jones with a closed fist,” according to police.

A video of the altercation obtained by TMZ Sports and published Wednesday shows Jones and Ragin then squaring up toward one another as a woman tries to separate them. A series of punches follows, and Ragin lands on the ground. Police have initially determined that Jones was defending himself.

“During the course of the incident Mr. Ragin also struck a companion of Mr. Jones, causing an injury to her hand,” Atlanta police said in the incident summary. “Mr. Ragin was determined to be the primary aggressor and was taken into custody. He was charged with two counts of battery.”

Jones and the woman both declined medical treatment, according to police, while Ragin was transported to a local hospital.

Jones is still a free agent after the Bengals chose not to pick up the team option on his contract earlier this offseason. He was infamously arrested in January 2017 and eventually suspended one game by the league for an incident with police in downtown Cincinnati.
