NFL star Pacman Jones has been ordered to pay roughly $11.6 MILLION in damages to the victims of a 2007 strip club shooting in Las Vegas.

Pacman had been sued by Aaron Cudworth and Thomas Urbanski — two security guards who were shot outside Minxx strip club during an NBA All-Star weekend back in 2007.

The incident was widely reported — things went crazy inside the club after the NFL star made it rain with hundreds of dollars in singles. According to reports, Jones got upset when one of the dancers began taking the money without his permission.

A fight ensued outside the club … and three people were shot … including Cudworth and Urbanski.

The security guards sued Pacman over the shooting — even though he was not the shooter.

Moments ago, a Nevada jury found Jones to be responsible for the shooting and awarded Cudworth $1.3 million in damages. Urbanski — who was paralyzed from the waist down in the incident — got $9.6 million. The winning lawyer was Richard Schonfeld.

Urbanski’s wife sued for loss of marital relations and won $750k.

At the time Pacman pled no contest to misdemeanor conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct — and was sentenced to 1 year probation and 200 hours of community service.
