Rule #1 of strip clubs: don't be a cheapskate.

Rule #2: Don't threaten to kill a security guard after he sees you beating on a dancer for taking the bills you leave out.
Rule #3: Definitely don't have one of your posse shoot a few people.

Unverified, but since it's an investigation into a shooting in Las Vegas during the tail end of All-Star Weekend and Titans CB Adam "Pacman" Jones is involved, it's curious that, as the Big Lead notes (and a hat tip to them), ESPN has done fuck-all on this yet. Usually they're all over police blotter-worthy incidents, and boy, is this one a doozy.

The Monday morning shooting paralyzed one security guard, hit the other, and hit a female customer. How witnesses are saying it went is something like this: Jones throws tons of $1s in front of the dancers, gets pissy when one takes bills on the ground without his permission, beats on her, guard breaks it up, he threatens, gunman comes in. Now, witnesses and investigators say/think Jones knows the gunman.

These things always start because of money. If you're going to throw it around, don't get pissed about who comes up to take it.

UPDATE: Per With Leather, Sports by Brooks reports that there is surveillance video of this.
