Adam Jones Causes Problems for Adam Jones

Baltimore Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones had a difficult time entering Canada for his team's weekend series with the Toronto Blue Jays, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Jones was detained by Canadian immigration officials for several hours on Friday.

"Basically, what happened, was they had the wrong person," said Jones. "They thought I was somebody else. It all got situated but it took its time to get situated. It's frustrating for me. I shouldn't have put it out how I put it out. Now, we can all just get on with it.

"Everything's taken care of on my end."

Andrea Bradley, Jones' mother, posted on her Facebook page that immigration officials had confused her son with Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones, whose lengthy rap sheet might give any nation pause when deciding whether or not to let him in.

"I don't know if it's him," Jones said. "We got the same name obviously, but I'm not going to say I was mistaken for him when I don't know."

If officials did a Google or Bing search, they'd have noticed that the 6-2, 215-pound Orioles outfielder looks nothing like his 5-10, 190-pound football namesake. Or maybe they could have asked "Are you here to make it rain, eh?", they'd know which Jones was trying to enter the Great White North.
