Prosecutors have asked police to do more investigation before charges are filed against Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones in a strip club fight that led to a triple shooting, authorities said Wednesday.
"It isn't that we're missing things, they just wanted more detailed information," said Lt. George Castro, head of the Las Vegas police department's violent crimes unit. "They said there might be more to this than what was recommended."
Police have sought a felony charge of coercion and misdemeanor charges of threat and battery against Jones in the Feb. 19 altercation at Minxx, a club several blocks west of the Las Vegas Strip.
The shooting left one man paralyzed. Authorities haven't yet identified the gunman but Castro has said Jones, 23, was the "inciter" of a fight that started inside in the club.
Clark County District Attorney David Roger said a prosecutor was assigned to work with investigators after they discussed the case this week.
No deadline was set for completion of their work, Roger and Castro said.
Roger declined to discuss elements of the case getting more review, but Castro said detectives hoped to identify a shooter.
Officer Martin Wright, a Las Vegas police spokesman, said further investigation of all aspects of the case was needed.
"This is common in an investigation. Just because you forward something to the district attorney, the district attorney can say, 'Hey, we should also look and do further investigation,"' Wright said.
The attorney representing Jones, Manny Arora, was not in his Atlanta office Wednesday morning and did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.
No arrests were made or sought, Castro said, and police have not re-interviewed Jones or two other people against whom investigators recommended charges be filed.
Castro said investigators sought to charge Robert Reid, 37, of Carson, Calif., with felony coercion and misdemeanor battery charges, and Sadia Morrison, 24, of New York, with felony coercion. Castro described Reid and Morrison as friends of Jones.
Morrison was arrested the morning of the shooting and charged with battery with a deadly weapon, a bottle.
Castro called it "customary" for prosecutors to seek additional investigation in complex cases.
"It's still actively being pursued," he added. "This has not been placed on anyone's back burner."
If Jones is charged in the Vegas case, a Tennessee prosecutor has said it could renew a criminal case over an August bar incident in a Nashville suburb. Jones had avoided jail time on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct with a plea agreement that required him to stay out of trouble until July.
Jones met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday in New York to discuss the Vegas case, nine other unrelated incidents when the cornerback has talked with police and his five arrests.
Goodell has said he will announce his decision on suspensions or other disciplinary action before the draft on April 28 and perhaps in the next 10 days.
The Titans also are trying to decide whether to keep Jones, the sixth pick overall in 2005. The cornerback did not tell team officials about being arrested twice in Georgia in 2006 -- a potential violation of the personal conduct policy. ------ Associated Press writer Ken Ritter contributed to this story from Las Vegas.
