Lewis on Jones' assault charge: "Unfortunate"

We didn't expect Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis to offer much in reaction to Adam Jones' latest legal entanglement during his press conference on Tuesday. When asked about the situation, Lewis said that he hasn't seen the video, but called it "unfortunate."

"The situation Adam Jones is in obviously is not something that you want to get involved in", Lewis said. "It’s unfortunate that he’s in this situation and that’s really about all I can add to it. This has got to work its way out whichever way it does. Many of you have probably seen the video, which I haven’t, but I’ve had enough people tell me about it since last Tuesday, or whenever it happened (Wednesday)."

Jones is currently with the team, but isn't expected to practice with a calf injury that he suffered several weeks ago. However he's not planning to speak with the media, based on (good) advice from his lawyers and agent.

Jones Interviewed By Mo Egger, Ends Call Abruptly

After being released from jail after this nightmare of an incident is just getting started, Bengals cornerback Adam Jones decided to join ESPN Radio's Mo Egger to talk about the incident. The interview was almost as odd as this whole impending legal debacle.

Apparently, Jones had to hang up early on the interview. Egger himself didn't really know why, deferring to a multitude of possibilities ranging from a dead cell phone battery, receiving legal advice telling him to clam up and/or the fact that he just got angry and hung up on the Cincinnati radio personality.

Either way, Jones answered some questions about the incident at a local bar. The audio to the interview can be heard here and we'll let you be the judge on Jones' take and what happened at the end of the interview. To be honest, we're not sure what to make about this whole thing, so we're going to defer our opinion until absolutely everything comes out about the case.

UPDATE: Here's the transcribed interview (thanks to Josh Kirkendall) and the embedded file to listen.

There are portions of his interview that are somewhat inaudible, so we marked those (instead of trying to guess).

Mo Egger opens asking what went down during the incident.

"I was approached by two young ladies that had been drinking and they wanted to take a picture. I seen them later at FBs, when I first got there, I seen them get to go in at like 10:50, but... if you see the video, it's self-explanatory. They called me over there and she said something, I forgot what she said (inaudible) before I knew it, I was struck with a bottle and I was just trying to make sure I was alright. The only thing I was doing, saying to myself (inaudible). I didn't draw back and swing and hit her with my right hand, it was just a quick reaction. That's what happened."

The interaction with her prior to the incident.

"It wasn't any (inaudible). I was actually talking to the young lady that was sitting down in front of her. I believe that she (inaudible) says to the other young lady, but that's what it was."

If the woman was threatening or belligerent.

"I'm not going to get into each piece-by-piece because of my case. I told 'em I was just coming on here to let people know like, I'm not acting a fool, I'm not out drinking, getting drunk. All I was doing was protecting myself. I wouldn't like to harm no one, period. I have two beautiful little girls and a wife at home, my mother, most of my family are all women. I don't even have a dad. That's not Adam. There's no part, I'm not into that and I don't condone it. I don't want you to twist it, try to twist it, and make it sound any other kind of way. Like I said, all I was doing was protecting myself and just trying to clear my space."

If he felt harmed when the woman approached with the beer bottle.

"Of course, when I got hit. Yes, I did."

Mo Egger went on to ask if the bottle left any marks (scars, bruises, cuts), but Jones had already hung up. Or as Mo said maybe it was a bad connection (which based on the sound could have happened), or lost power or whatever.


Video of the incident involving Adam Jones

The story of Adam Jones' alleged assault continues with the release of the video.


Jones Turns Himself In At Hamilton County Jail

With assault charges hanging over his head and alleged video evidence that proves his innocence, Bengals cornerback Adam Jones opted to turn himself in Monday afternoon at the Hamilton County jail.

The move is hardly a surprise given Jones' pleas of self-defense during the bar fight that landed him in trouble last Wednesday. Both Jones and his agent insist that video evidence will corroborate his story, as well as testimony from multiple witnesses whose version of events also line up with Jones'. All that remained then was to show up and hopefully clear his name.

Unfortunately for Jones, history is not on his side when it comes to dealing with law enforcement, but perhaps now he can finally begin the process of proving his innocence.

Jones' agent: Video will back Jones' story

Oddly enough it was Adam Jones that broke the news on Monday that he was turning himself over to police after two women reacted violently when Jones refused to have a picture taken with them, mostly because they were belligerent before that request. The story goes that a bottle was thrown at him and Jones reacted.

Jones and his agent Peter Schaeffer have stood behind their version of events, that Jones was defending himself and based on the information that we're gathering, how can anyone blame him for defending himself.

Schaffer also told Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer that along with witnesses that observed the incident, a video exists that will exonerate Jones.

The Bengals will not comment until after the legal process has played out.
