Bengals cornerback Adam Jones entered a plea of not guilty in mid-July on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest at a Cincinnati bar over the summer. On Monday Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Brad Greenberg set a trial date for November 17.
Jones was arrested while celebrating his wife's birthday. According to court documents:
Once inside the bar, officials reportedly found Jones acting out and shouting profanities. He was then escorted outside and asked to calm down. Jones allegedly continued to be disruptive outside, yelling more profanities and causing a scene. That's when police tried to arrest the 27-year-old but he resisted by tightening his arms and pulling away.
Prosecutors in Las Vegas are reportedly monitoring the case, which could result in a possible probation violation, that would land him in jail for a year.
Immediately placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list after suffering a spinal injury last year, Jones has missed the first two games this season and isn't eligible to return until after week six. According to a tweet, Jones reportedly had his injured neck cleared by doctors.
