It’s alleged that Jones assaulted a man by “pushing and poking” him in the eye. Cops say he refused to stop when ordered to and he refused to enter the cop car as he kicking and head-butting officers. The misdemeanor charges against him are for his alleged assault, disorderly conduct, and obstructing of official business. The felony charge is for “harassment of a member of the medical staff in the justice center with a bodily substance,” which is for spitting on a nurse at the jail.

Given Jones’ history, these charges could have serious legal ramifications and could lead to a lengthy suspension for the 2017 season. Jones is under contract with the Bengals through 2018 after signing a three-year, $22MM deal in March.

      Just because a person isn’t in the new news doesn’t mean they are past their issues. We all need a mentor and be a mentor. Hopefully, one day Adam will figure that out.

    If it’s all true then I doubt we see him in football again.

  5. Same ol Pacman Jones. Was one of the Titans worst draft picks. Not because of talent, but because he was a knucklehead. I guess he still is.
