Joining Tony Romo, Charles Barkley and Marge Simpson on the list of public figures with particularly bad gambling problems (the problem being that they're bad at gambling) is otherwise immaculately behaved Cowboys' reinstatement appellant Adam "Pacman" Jones, who is in hock to Caesars Palace to the tune of $20,000, which is a light afternoon drizzle in the grand scheme of money precipitation.

The district attorney’s office is seeking a felony arrest warrant for suspended NFL player Adam “Pacman” Jones for failing to repay $20,000 in gambling debts to Caesars Palace.

Las Vegas attorney Robert Langford, who represents Jones, said he was “pretty damn surprised” to hear that the district attorney was moving forward with the criminal case.

“I thought we were working it out,” Langford said. “He (Jones) hasn’t been playing football, so he hasn’t been able to pay it back.”

Oh yes, I can't believe a casino would try to get its money back. Pretty loose with the bottom line, those guys. And hasn't Pacman been doing things like appearing in wrestling events? Those usually aren't done for charity, except the one time I put Tina Fey in a headlock to benefit the World Sanity Foundation. Wrote it off in my taxes and everything.
