Cornerback 'Pacman' Jones Accused of Assault
CINCINNATI, Ohio (WKRC) -- The day after helping the Bengals secure a win over the New England Patriots, a Bengals player with a troubled past goes on trial for assault.
Police say cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones hit a 34 year old woman at a downtown nightclub. He has pleaded not guilty and Monday a judge began hearing the case. Local 12's Larry Davis is at the Hamilton County Courthouse with Monday's testimony.
Jones could be punished by the National Football League under its conduct policy especially because of his previous legal troubles. When he was first drafted by the Titans in 2005, Jones was on probation for a fight in West Virginia. More charges came in July 2005, and February, August and October of 2006.
Jones was ordered last year to pay 11 million dollars to two Las Vegas strip club employees injured during a fight and shooting in 2007.
The NFL suspended him for the entire 2007 season and for part of the 2008 season. A suspension from the Dallas Cowboys in October 2008 followed a fight with a bodyguard.
The Bengals signed him in 2010. Jones pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after a fight at a Downtown Cincinnati nightclub in 2011. And most recently last month, he paid a 130 dollar fine for disorderly conduct stemming from an Ohio highway patrol stop.
