According to Jones' agent, Peter Schaffer, Jones was approached by two intoxicated women outside a bar after a Cincinnati Reds game. They wanted their picture taken with him. When Jones refused, one of the women hit him with a beer bottle, which prompted Jones to immediately slap her. Video of the incident can be found here.
After the arrest, Jones took to Twitter to claim he was defending himself:

Jones has been plagued with legal troubles his entire career since joining the NFL in 2005. He was suspended the entire 2007 season and part of 2008 for a series of arrests, and pleaded guilty in Jan. 2012 to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
The league has not issued a statement at this time, though NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told ESPN, "we're aware of it and will review the facts at the appropriate time."
