(AllHipHop News) A man has pleaded no contest to attempted murder with use of a deadly weapon in a strip club melee involving NFL player Adam “Pacman” Jones.Arvin Kenti Edwards entered the plea on Tuesday (September 21st) for shooting three people in 2007 outside of Minxx Gentlemen’s Club & Lounge, that left one man paralyzed and two others wounded. Edwards now faces four to 10 years since he pleaded out to three charges of attempted murder, three counts of battery with a deadly weapon and being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm. Had Edwards went to trial, he could have been sentenced to up to 186 years in prison. Although maintained his innocence in the shooting, Edwards said he copped the plea to avoid the jail time. An amateur video hit the internet in 2007 during Edwards’ trial that was used during Edwards’ trial, featuring Jones and Nelly throwing money at strippers in the venue. Jones had brought in $100,000 in cash into the club and had $40,000 converted into $1 bills, which was thrown out to the dancers. When Jones joined Hip-Hop mogul Jermaine Dupri on stage, the So So Def CEO began chastising the dancers for picking up their tips before the music set ended.”We gonna show y’all how to make it rain,” Dupri bellowed. “I’m Jermaine Dupri, alright. Y’all are here to dance. Don’t bend down and try to get your money. Don’t start getting the money until I tell y’all to get off the stage. Y’all just keep f**king dancing!”Afterwards, a fight broke out between strippers over the money, while a promoter allegedly ran off with Jones’ money, which was stuffed in a trash bag. Jones allegedly met Edwards afterwards and offered to get Jones’ money back. Moments later, Edwards allegedly opened fire in the club. According to testimony, Jones paid an associate $15,000 which eventually went to Edwards, because Jones was allegedly scared Edwards would track him down.
