The surveillance footage is a little grainy, but here is what we can see.
A woman putting what appears to be a bottle close to Pacman Jones’ face and then Pacman Jones taking a swing at her. Self defense or not? You make the call.
From my personal judgment, just based off the video, it doesn’t support Pacman Jones’ version of events. Even if the women were drunk, it seems Pacman sought them out. She didn’t throw the bottle, she looked more like she was pouring her drink on him. It wasn’t a surprise bottle being thrown and Pacman just reacting, which would be more understandable.
Someone pours a drink on you, you must have more restraint, you can’t punch her in the face, especially if you are Pacman Jones.
