Adam Jones mistaken for Adam "Pacman" Jones?

Adam Jones headshot.jpgOn Friday afternoon, Craig told us that Adam Jones was detained at the Canadian border. Well, according to what Jones wrote on his Twitter page on Friday night, it was all a case of mistaken identity.

Via Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun:

“Basically, what happened, was they had the wrong person,” said Jones,
who broke the news on his Twitter
page. “They thought I was somebody else. It all got situated but it
took its time to get situated. It’s frustrating for me. I shouldn’t have
put it out how I put it out. Now, we can all just get on with it. …
Everything’s taken care of on my end.”

And just who may he have been mistaken with? According to Zrebiec, Jones’ mother believes that it is Adam “Pacman” Jones, the newly-signed Cincinnati Bengal. Jones couldn’t confirm his mother’s suspicions, but obviously “Pacman” has quite the rap sheet. Still, the incident shouldn’t instill much confidence in athletes — or anyone, really — when passing through the border.

    well at least we give them due process and not lock them in a cage in Guantanamo indefinitely.
