LAS VEGAS (AP) - Adam ``Pacman'' Jones won't have to appear in court until October to face charges in a strip club melee that preceded a triple shooting, authorities said Friday.
Jones' lawyer, Robert Langford, said he made an initial appearance on Jones' behalf Thursday, while representing a woman charged with Jones and Jones' bodyguard in the Feb. 19 fracas.
Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Tony Abbatangelo waived a scheduled Monday court date and set an Oct. 29 preliminary hearing for Jones, Sadia Morrison and Robert Reid, said Langford, who represents all three defendants.
A spokeswoman for Clark County District Attorney David Roger confirmed the new date.
Jones, Morrison and Reid remained free on bail and didn't appear in person.
No one has been charged in a shooting that occurred outside the club minutes after the brawl inside. A bar bouncer was paralyzed and two other people were left with less serious wounds at the club several blocks off the Las Vegas Strip.
Jones, a cornerback for the Tennessee Titans, faces two felony charges of coercion stemming from allegations he threatened to kill club employees and that he bit a bar bouncer in the melee during the NBA All-Star Game weekend.
Jones faces a maximum of 12 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.
He has been suspended for the upcoming NFL season for disciplinary reasons, including six arrests and allegations of misconduct in jurisdictions around the country. He has not been convicted in those cases.
Las Vegas police have described Reid, 37, of Carson, Calif., as Jones' bodyguard. He faces one felony coercion charge alleging he attacked a Minxx bouncer who tried to restrain Jones.
Langford said the judge let him stand in for Jones and Reid while he was in court Thursday representing Morrison, 25, of New York. She faces five charges, including coercion, felony assault with a deadly weapon and battery stemming from allegations that she hit a bouncer in the head with a bottle and attacked other club employees with a chair and a stanchion.
All three intend to plead not guilty, their lawyer said.
