Another Pacers dust up

December 10, 2007
Jamaal Tinsley is back in the news, and not for helping the Indiana Pacers win games.

Early Sunday morning, someone with an assault rifle followed Tinsley and his friends from a nightclub near Lafayette Square Mall to the Conrad Hotel downtown and blasted away at Tinsleyâ??s three cars.

It could have been worse. The only injuries reported were to Pacers equipment manager Joey Qatato, who was hit in his elbows.

Still, itâ??s another front-page story the Pacers donâ??t want. Itâ??s Tinsleyâ??s third brush with the law in the last two years.

Tinsley is having one of the best years of his career. Even so, has he become more a liability than an asset to the organization?
