Former NFL cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has reportedly agreed to a plea deal in his casino cheating case, which includes a brief stint behind bars.

According to reports, the plea deal states that Pacman agrees to spend 10 days in jail as well as a year and a half without alcohol. Additionally, he cannot possess a firearm, or any other dangerous weapon, without permission from his probation officer during that time, and he has been banned from the Rising Star Casino.

The 35-year old defensive back was booked at the Rising Sun Casino in Indiana in the early hours of February 27, following allegations that he was "capping bets," or adding more chips once he knew what the outcome would be. After being confronted by Indiana Gaming Commission Enforcement agents, he went on a tirade and allegedly threatened to kill one of the officials.

Jones originally received eight criminal charges including felony intimidation and felony battery against an officer, but will enter a guilty plea to one count of felony cheating at gambling and one count of misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.

Pacman played in seven games with the Denver Broncos last season but was released in November and is not currently on an NFL roster.
