Bengals CB Adam 'Pacman' Jones Pleads Not Guilty

Although Adam 'Pacman' Jones was not in court Monday, his attorney reportedly pleaded not guilty for the charges the Cincinnati Bengals' defensive back received. 

Jones, who was detained and arrested after refusing to leave a downtown bar on Sunday, July 10, had been charged with two misdemeanors. He was given the first - disorderly conduct while intoxicated - for an altercation inside the bar and the second for being uncooperative with police and apparently attempting to remove his handcuffs. 

Jones previously denied that he had been drinking when police handcuffed him, as he told,to the local news station when he was released from jail.

This isn't the first time Pacman has been in the news over legal troubles. In 2007, Jones faced two felony charges in a strip club shooting in Las Vegas. The City That Never Sleeps is the first city Jones received a formal criminal charge. Although he has earned himself multiple league suspensions, the Bengals signed him during the 2010 season to an undisclosed contract.

The defender played just five games last season before suffering an injury that placed him on the injured reserve.

VIDEO: 'Pacman' Jones Denies Police Claims Of Drunken Disorderliness

Cincinnati's Channel 9 got a moment of Adam "Pacman" Jones' time Sunday after the Cincinnati Bengals CB had been arrested the night before, when the controversial player had been charged with public drunkenness. He denied cursing at officers and causing a scene, saying he'd only been taking his wife out for her birthday.

He also points out that neck brace while wondering how he could resist arrest in such a condition. That mysterious neck brace is due to a surgery from a month ago to remedy an injury suffered last NFL season, says Jones.

Despite having a bone to pick with the city's police force, Jones closes by saying he loves the city of Cincinnati. Kinda looking forward to hearing the whole story on this one, friends.

Pacman Jones Arrested After Altercation in Cincinnati Bar

Adam Jones has been able to stay out of legal trouble for awhile. The Cincinnati Bengals defensive back better known as Pacman was apparently unable to keep that streak alive during the NFL lockout, however, as there are reports he was arrested following an incident at a bar early Sunday morning.

Jones was detained by Cincinnati police for refusing to leave a bar early Sunday morning, WLWT reports (via Pro Football Talk), following an apparent altercation between an 'intoxicated and disruptive' Jones and his fellow bar patrons.

Jones apparently wasn't cooperative with police, either, as he allegedly attempted to get out of his handcuffs before eventually needing two officers restrained him.

While this is certainly a bad incident for the oft in trouble Jones, it might not ultimately end up hurting his NFL career as the league has no control of what players do with the lockout in effect. Still, it doesn't look good for the player who has been in trouble quite a few times already since coming out of West Virginia in 2005.
