CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is set to be arraigned on an assault charge after police said he tried to hurt a woman.
Jones was arrested Monday and released on his own recognizance ahead of his Tuesday afternoon arraignment on the misdemeanor charge.
A police complaint says Jones is accused of striking the Cincinnati woman shortly before midnight June 5. The police report lists the injury as apparently minor.
A message left for his agent hasn’t been returned.
It’s not the first time Jones has been in trouble. He pleaded guilty in January 2012 to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. He had been accused of shouting profanities and trying to pull away as police arrested him at a Cincinnati bar months earlier.
