NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- There's a new twist to Adam "Pacman" Jones' legal problems.

A man charged with shooting three people outside a Las Vegas strip club has denied he was involved and accuses the NFL defensive back of ordering the shooting and framing him to avoid identifying the real shooter.

Arvin Kenti Edwards told WTVF-TV in Nashville in a telephone interview that Jones lied to police about the February 2007 shooting at the Minxx club that left an employee paralyzed and two other people wounded. Edwards says Jones paid someone for the shooting, but that it wasn't him.

He accuses Jones of lying to help his plea deal as the suspended cornerback tries to return to the NFL. Jones was traded by the Tennessee Titans to the Dallas Cowboys last weekend.

Police say Edwards opened fire outside the strip club after Jones was involved in a brawl inside. Edwards later demanded $15,000 from Jones for "services rendered," according to police.

Edwards is being held in a Washington state jail on 1 million dollars' bail pending extradition to Nevada.
