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.
