Las Vegas police said Arvin Kenti Edwards was arrested late Friday at the Yakima County Correctional facility, where he was already in custody on unrelated charges.
Police said Edwards, 29, of Renton, Wash., faces three counts of attempted murder with a weapon and three counts of battery with substantial bodily harm.
Las Vegas police spokesman Bill Cassell wouldn't provide further details.
Club bouncer Tommy Urbanski was paralyzed from the waist down in the February 2007 shooting at the Minxx strip club.
Las Vegas police said Jones incited a fight that led to the shooting. The 24-year-old suspended Tennessee Titans star pleaded no contest in December to a disorderly conduct charge, agreeing to a year probation, random drug testing, community service and anger management classes.
Two co-defendants also took plea deals.
Witnesses told authorities that Jones grabbed money from a large plastic trash bag and showered strippers on stage with cash in an act known as ``making it rain.'' A melee ensued, and shots were fired later outside the club. Urbanski, another bouncer and a female patron were wounded.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Jones last April for the 2007 season for his off-field conduct. The sixth pick in the 2005 draft has been arrested six times since being drafted.
