Worker suspended after fistfight with NFL star inside busy Atlanta airport

ATLANTA — Former Cincinnati Bengals star Adam "Pacman" Jones was invovled in a brawl at the airport in Atlanta on Tuesday night, Atlanta police confirmed.

Atlanta police said they responded to a fight call on Concourse B near Gate B6 at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport around 10 p.m. Tuesday.

They said an ABM employee, identified as Frank Ragin, made a gesture toward Jones, who then confronted him about it, and the two began to argue.

Ragin punched Jones with a closed fist, cutting his face, and that is when Jones started to defend himself, police said.


They said Ragin was knocked to the ground.

Ragin also hit a woman who was traveling with Jones, hurting her hand, according to police. He was found to be the aggressor in the fight and was arrested. Ragin was charged with two counts of battery.

Jones and his companion declined medical treatment, police said.

ABM is a contractor for the airport that deals with building maintenance and facility services. The company said Ragin has been suspended until a full investigation by Atlanta police and an internal ABM review have been completed.

"ABM is committed to providing and promoting a safe environment for employees and customers," an ABM representative told our investigative partners at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and

Jones, who was drafted in 2005 out of West Virginia by the Tennessee Titans, has also played for the Dallas Cowboys and the Cincinnati Bengals.

The cornerback, a Westlake High School graduate, played in nine games for the Bengals last season.
