  • Breaking Report: Adam Jones Arrested for Assault

    Wasn't Jones on a one year contract? This sue isn't going to do him much good for getting paid and signed for next year.

    Adam Jones arrested on multiple charges

    The calendar says 2017, but Pacman Jones is apparently partying like it’s 2007.

    Via Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the veteran Bengals cornerback has been arrested on multiple charges.

    The initial counts were obstructing official business, disorderly conduct, and assault. All are misdemeanors. Per Dehner, Jones has since been charged with felony harassment with a bodily substance.

    In 18 years of practicing law, I never came across a case of felony harassment with a bodily substance. My guess would be that Jones spit/spat/whatever on someone.

    Suspended for the 2007 season after a rash of run-ins with the law, Jones had managed to stay out of trouble since 2013, and he had been properly praised for turning his life around. As he gets closer to the end of his football career, it’s hard not to wonder whether this latest off-field entanglement will cause the Bengals to move on from Jones.

      Well according to Cincinnati.com he signed a 3 year deal going into this year, I thought he signed a one year deal. Will Marvin cut him? Will he get suspended even though it's been so long since his last arrest?

        As in any criminal matter, let the facts come out prior to pronouncing judgment.

          True but part of this is once again putting oneself in bad situations.

              In his rant after Sunday's game, he got on the media and fans for wanting to get rid of Lewis. He praised Lewis for turning his life around and being a father to him. I think Daddy needs to take him out behind the woodshed...

                NFL.com says he was arrested just before 1AM . . . that's improving since his previous two arrests happened around 3AM. Or it could just be a sign of getting older as we tend to jump into "get off my lawn" mode quicker as we age.

                  Well we also tend to start drinking at the club at 9 pm and leaving at 1 am instead of arriving at 11 PM and leaving at last call.

                    That is nice that Lewis helped him turn around but that has nothing to do with his competence as HC

                      wait for full story to come out cops most times write out as many charges they can think of to justify an arrest and then let the DA pair it down to what has a chance to stick. or use the mass of charges to get a plea on 1 lesser charge. that said jones shows his immaturity again by either placing himself in a questionable area or allowed his emotions to not allow him to use his head and avoid a confrontation that could of been avoided escalating to this level. that said he also could be innocent,

                        Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones unleashed profane tirade on the Cincinnati police officer who arrested him on charges of obstructing official business, disorderly conduct, and assault three weeks ago.

                        Video from the officer’s car, obtained by TMZ, show Jones repeatedly calling the officer “a b–tch a– ni—-” and seeming to try to intimidate the officer.

                        “I hope you die tomorrow,” Jones said. “You’re gonna be out of a job tomorrow.”

                        The officer is not out of a job, but Jones might be soon. The arrest in and of itself was a strike against Jones, who has a significant history of off-field trouble. But when a player’s bad act is caught on video, it makes it much harder for a team to ignore.

                        There’s also the reality that Jones will turn 34 this year and has a $6.3 million base salary that the Bengals can clear off their books by cutting him. Although Jones started all 16 games in 2016, the Bengals may want to cut him purely for reasons related to age and the salary cap.

                        So regardless of how the legal case against Jones plays out, it wouldn’t be surprising if he has played his last game in Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Police Department probably wouldn’t mind that.

                          If cutting Jones helps them sign Kirkpatrick to a long term deal, I can see it happening.

                            Time to cut Jones-- not only for his stupidity off the field but also his stupidity on the field and the fact he regressed last year. He's a 1/2 step slower, gets beat too often, and gets too many penalties.
