Bengals Ordered To Garnish Adam Jones' Wages

In a very controversial move at the time, the Bengals signed Adam Jones to a two-year contract. He is scheduled to make $545,000 in 2010 and $640,000 in 2011 before he's a free agent. In the hopes to repair his image and rebuild his playing career, Jones simply did what was asked of him, staying out of the public eye with anything outside of football.

That doesn't mean his past won't follow him. According to the Enquirer, Common Pleas Court Judge Ralph Winkler ordered that a significant portion of Jones' salary may be garnished by the Cincinnati Bengals to pay Elegante Leasing Company for $240,925 owed by Jones "because he stopped making payments and crashed the Bentley but didn't pay for its repairs."

In September 2005, legal documents show, Jones leased the Bentley for five years for $218,632. Jones made the initial payment of $70,000 and monthly payments of $2,519 through March 2008 but stopped paying after that. He also damaged the car, requiring $58,000 in repairs - money the leasing company said it had to pay to get the Bentley back.
