Nightmare Clients of the Week

Nightmare Clients for the Week of August 20th-August 27th

1. Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones of the Tennessee Titans got into a fight at a nightclub and was arrested on charges of assault and felony vandalism after damaging the club owner’s $4,000 necklace [‘Pacman’ Jones arrested; Winslow II enters plea].

Slow week for professionals violating the law.  Nice to see no Cincinnati Bengals in the news!  Now if only T.O. could start getting his act together…
