Bengals Adam "Pacman" Jones Pleads Guilty For July Bar Incident

New, comments

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones pleaded guilty on Wednesday for an incident he was arrested for at a Cincinnati bar in July. When an argument between Jones and his wife broke out in the bar, police were called. After "aggressively cursing the police" they tried to arrest him but when they tried to put him in handcuffs, he "waived his arms and tensed his muscles" so they wouldn't be able to. He was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. The resisting arrest charge was dropped in exchange for the guilty plee to disorderly conduct.

Jones was ordered to pay a $250 fine (plus court costs), do 50 hours of community service, stay out of Scene Ultra bar and is on one-year probation. It is currently unclear as to whether or not Jones' guilty plea will affect his probation in Nevada from a previous arrest.

The judge told Jones that he acted unprofessionally when he was arrested.

From The Cincinnati Enquirer:

"This is unprofessional behavior," Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Brad Greenberg told Jones today. "If you want to be regarded as a professional, you need to act like one at all times."

Jones is now a free agent and it's unclear as to whether or not the Bengals will re-sign him before the 2012 season. In his two seasons with the Bengals, he has only played in 13 games and the cornerback position is considered to be one of the most urgent positions to upgrade.
