Sun Topics

The Associated Press is reporting that the man accused of shooting three people in a strip club melee involving NFL player Adam "Pacman" Jones is being held at a Las Vegas jail pending an initial court appearance.

A court official says 29-year-old Arvin Kenti Edwards of Renton, Wash., is due for arraignment Friday before a Las Vegas judge. Edwards is facing felony attempted murder and battery with a deadly weapon charges. The judge is expected to name a lawyer to represent him.

Police say Edwards arrived Wednesday at the Clark County Detention Center following his extradition from Washington state, where he was arrested April 18.

Police arrested Edwards in the Minxx shooting on charges of attempted murder and battery after Jones picked him out of a police lineup.

He's accused of shooting three people outside the strip club after Jones was involved a brawl inside. The fight occurred during a raucous NBA All-Star weekend in February 2007.
