One Sunday morning, it all changed. Bengals cornerback Adam Jones went from a man journeying on some imagine rebuilding project,only to be sucked right back into the issues that laid the smackdown earlier in his career. Signed by the Bengals last year to a two-year contract, Jones' reminder of his past popped up last year after a heart-breaking loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in which a case of mistaken identity had him temporarily in handcuffs.

Besides that, Jones has worked out with the team during the offseason when hasn't been forced to, rehabilitating from a neck injury that he ended his season against the Atlanta Falcons.

Until Sunday morning, where good times at a local Cincinnati bar celebrating his wife's birthday (supposedly) ended with an arrest and charges of disorderly conduct resisting arrest. Now exists the possibility of league discipline, possibly incurring a four-game suspension to start the season putting the Bengals in a bind if they're unable to re-sign Johnathan Joseph when the new league year begins.

In the meantime, according to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Jones' next court hearing is July 18.
