ESPN radio in Cincinnati got hold of the security footage that shows Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones hitting a woman after the woman first came toward him with what looks like a bottle. The altercation, which happened last week outside a Cincinnati bar, begins around the 1-minute mark of the video below.
It's tough to tell exactly what's happening here. The woman and Pacman are talking from opposite sides of a fence, but we can't hear what they're saying. The woman then reaches her hand up toward Pacman's head, though it's not clear whether she's trying to strike him or pour a drink in his face. It's at that point that Pacman can be seen hitting the woman with his left hand or fist, knocking her down. As she falls, the contents of her drink go flying. Both Pacman and the man he's with and the woman and whoever she's with walk away.
Pacman turned himself in to police this afternoon. His agent has said Pacman retaliated after being hit in the head with a beer bottle. Pacman maintains he was acting in self-defense.
