(Newser) – Talented-yet-troubled Tennessee defensive back Adam "Pacman" Jones has been charged with two counts of coercion—a felony—in the February Vegas strip club fracas that left a bouncer paralyzed and got Jones suspended for the 2007-08 season. Jones stands accused of biting a bouncer's ankle and making death threats against club employees.

Jones could get a maximum of 12 years in prison and a $10K fine if convicted. Two members of Jones's entourage also face felony charges and have yet to be turned in. No one, however, was accused of the shooting that disabled the now-paralyzed bouncer.
