The events that took place in a Las Vegas strip club four years ago in which a man was partially paralyzed have finally been wrapped up and one Bengals player is extremely happy about it. That night has been hanging over Adam Jones' head for four years.

According to Joe Reedy, as part of a plea agreement, Jones was charged with a misdemeanor of conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct. He was sentenced to a year of probation, will have to complete 200 hours of community service, enroll in an anger management course and be subject to random drug tests.

Of the results of the trial, Jones said:

"I’m happy I finally got everything behind me. This has been a long, long haul and has affected a lot of families. It has affected me personally. I’m trying to do whatever I have to do to never come back to nothing that is close to this situation again."
