Former NFL star Pacman Jones didn’t take getting arrested at an Indiana casino well at all.

TMZ posted the video early Sunday morning, and the former Bengals player can be seen getting extremely heated and confrontational with police officers during his arrest back in February. Authorities were called after he tried to sneak more money onto the table after winning bets, which seems like something that’s easy to get caught doing.

He was eventually placed in handcuffs and taken into custody.

According to the same TMZ report, he reached a plea deal and pled guilty to one count of felony cheating at gambling and one count of misdemeanor resisting law enforcement. Several other charges stemming from the incident were dropped.

Jones was sentenced to 10 days in jail and no alcohol use for 18 months.

This is without a doubt one of the dumbest arrests I’ve ever seen. Pacman made nearly $40 million during his NFL career.

Why the hell was he trying to sneak more money onto the table after winning bets? Again, it seems like the easiest thing in the world to get caught doing.

Place your bets and let it be. Here’s more free advice for everybody: flipping the bird to police officers will almost never end well. That’s just a fact. It’s an incredibly stupid idea, and it’s a great way to escalate the situation to a bad place.

You’d think Jones would be a shade smarter. Apparently, my expectations are a bit too high.

Have fun in jail and not being allowed to drink for a year and a half. Sounds like literal hell on Earth.
