On February 27th, former Bengals cornerback Adam Jones was arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct at Rising Star casino in southeastern Indiana.

Now, is reporting that Jones is a total of eight charges for the incident and could face over 11 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

Jones is charged with intimidation, battery against a public safety official, cheating at gambling, attempted theft, disorderly conduct, public intoxication and two counts of resisting law enforcement.

The details of the incident are extremely damning for Jones, who was originally approached at the casino for cheating. Jones threatened an Indiana Gaming Commission officer according to the reports of the altercation, and that escalated to physical confrontation, along with Jones attempting to flee the scene with stolen poker chips.

Jones will only serve the maximum sentence of 11+ years if he’s found guilty of all charges, and it’s tough to see that not happening for him based off the reports of what happened. The former first-round pick last played for the Denver Broncos in mid-November of last season.

Jones played eight seasons for the Bengals and wasn’t new to trouble when in Cincinnati. This may be the last straw for him, though.
