LAS VEGAS – Court documents allege that a 29-year-old man arrested for a Las Vegas strip club shooting extorted hush money from suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones.
Police said Arvin Kenti Edwards, of Renton, Washington, used go-betweens to reach Jones, who paid $15,000 over several installments to various people after the shooting.
Three people were shot, including a man who ended up paralyzed — after a melee at the Minxx strip club during the NBA All-Star Weekend in February 2007.
Edwards is in custody at the Yakima County Correctional Facility after being arrested Friday on attempted murder and battery charges. He is due in court Wednesday to face extradition.
