Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was arrested early yesterday morning and charged with two misdemeanors after an incident at a downtown bar.
The embattled NFL player spoke with news media after he was released from jail Sunday and said he hadn’t been drinking before police arrested him and charged him with disorderly conduct while intoxicated and resisting arrest. WCPO in Cincinnati reported, according to court records, that Jones was escorted out of the bar after refusing to calm down and resisted arrest outside by pulling away as officers tried to place him in handcuffs.
Jones said he wasn’t yelling profanities inside the bar, as court documents claim, and that he didn’t resist arrest either. Jones played five games for the Bengals last season after they signed him to an undisclosed contract. He was placed on injured reserve with a herniated disc in his neck, an injury he suffered October 24th during a game in Atlanta.
Jones is best-known for his off-the-field legal troubles, including his involvement in a Las Vegas strip club shooting in 2007, and his multiple league suspensions.
