Bengals CB Adam Jones pleads not guilty to assault charge

Paul Frederiksen-US PRESSWIRE

The story of Adam Jones continues after the cornerback pleaded not guilty to the assault charge from an incident last week.

Adam Jones has vehemently promoted his innocence, through twitter, an ESPN radio interview and through his agent, who believes the video and witnesses backs Jones' claim.

So it's not surprising that Jones has pleaded not guilty on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.

Tuesday's not guilty plea came a day after Jones was arrested and then released on his own recognizance.

A police complaint says the 29-year-old Jones is accused of striking the Cincinnati woman last week. The police report lists the injury as apparently minor.

Jones turned himself in on Monday due to an incident from last Wednesday that led to a confrontation with a woman at a local bar. He was formally charged with assaulting a female patron but released soon after.
