Bengals cornerback Adam Jones was arrested at a downtown bar during the early morning hours on July 10, charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Though he claimed he wasn't drunk, witnesses said he was "acting out and shouting profanities", eventually escorted outside the bar. Failing to calm down, Jones reportedly continued to act out when police tried to arrest him, pulling away when police tried to handcuff him. Earlier this year Jones returned to court, pled guilty for the incident, forced to pay $250 (plus court costs), 50 hours of community service with one-year probation.

According to the Associated Press, Jones satisfied the 50 hours of community service and as a result a judge in Cincinnati released Jones from probation ten months earlier than expected.

Jones started the 2011 on the Physically Unable to Perform list, continuing his rehabilitation with offseason neck surgery. When he made his season debut against the Seattle Seahawks, Jones returned a punt 63 yards, though not without its cost, suffering a hamstring injury that kept him out an additional two games.

Due to Leon Hall's Achilles injury, Jones started seven games in 2011, posting six passes defensed in eight games played. He allowed an opposing quarterback passer rating of 95.1, two touchdowns and 259 yards receiving to players he covered.

Jones will become an unrestricted free agent on March 13.
