Pacman Jones' Family, They Just Don't Understand

You know, it's one thing when a drug dealer is concerned about your personal safety. But jeez, when your family is this concerned about you, jeez, it's all over.

"Everybody tries to talk to [Pacman Jones]," uncle Robert Jones said. "I do. His mother talks to him, his grandparents talk to him. ... I don't know, I just think he is out of control. I've told him I think he is out of damn control, but he doesn't want to hear it. I hate to say things on the negative because I want to see him do good. But it is hard to see him keep getting involved in stuff like this. ...''

This came on the heels of Pacman's birthday party in Tennessee over the weekend. What did the family talk about during the party? Not the arrest: They say it "just didn't come up." Well, that's what happens when you tell a kid he can't make it rain during his own birthday party; he just closes down on you. Kids today, honestly.

Next time, get him a stripper. He'll open up.
