Bengals CB Adam Jones arrested in what his agent Peter Schaffer calls "a travesty of justice." Schaffer said police haven't spoken to Jones.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 10, 2013
Schaffer said 2 intoxicated women approached Jones at Reds game, took picture with him, threw bottle of beer at him, then Jones slapped one.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 10, 2013
Following the arrest, Jones was the first to send out word on Twitter to defend himself:
Just got arrestedfor protecting myself, I will not let this break me or change what I have work so hard for ....— ADAm Pacman Jones (@REALPACMAN24) June 10, 2013
This isn't the first time Jones has been in trouble with the law. In 2009, he was involved in an incident at a Las Vegas strip club that led to a fight and a shooting, leaving one man paralyzed from the waist down. In 2011, Jones was arrested at a Cincinnati bar.
Jones is coming off a solid season. He played in 16 regular-season games for the first time in his career and compiled 40 tackles, nine pass breakups and one sack.
