ATLANTA (WSB/CNN) – Police said former Cincinnati Bengals star Adam "Pacman" Jones got into a fight at Atlanta's airport Tuesday night.

According to police, Frank Ragin, who works for a contractor that does maintenance at the airport, made a gesture toward Jones.

Jones then confronted him about it, and the two began to argue.

Police said Ragin punched Jones, cutting his face. Jones defended himself, and Ragin was knocked to the ground.

Ragin also is accused of hitting a woman traveling with Jones, hurting her hand.

Police said Ragin was determined to be the aggressor. He was arrested and charged with two counts of battery.

Jones and his companion declined medical treatment.

Ragin's company said he's been suspended pending the results of the police investigation and an internal review.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
