After being drafted by the Tennessee Titans in 2005, Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones was arrested three times over a thirteen month period. After a shooting incident involving Jones occurred during the 2007 NBA All-Star weekend, the corner back was suspended for a year. After serving his suspension, Jones was traded by the Titans to the Cowboys for a fourth round pick. After one season in Dallas, Jones was released by the team. From there, Jones attempted to play in the Canadian Football League before signing a two year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010. This off-season, Jones signed a three-year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals to remain with the team. Since the 2007 NBA All-Star shooting incident, Jones has managed to stay out of trouble. However, Jones’ troubles will continue as Jones will turn himself in today for an incident that occurred at a bar on Thursday. Jones tweeted out news of the incident via his Twitter: 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 ProFootballTalk.com details exactly what happened on Thursday that led to Jones’ arrest. His agent, Peter Schaffer, tells PFT by phone that Jones was at a bar after a Reds game.  Jones was approached by two women that he deemed to be intoxicated, and they wanted to take a picture with him.  Jones declined. After he declined, one of them threw a beer bottle at him, striking his head from point blank range.  So he turned and slapped her and said, “What are your doing?  Stop it!” Schaffer added that there are multiple witnesses who can corroborate Jones’ side of the story and that police have yet to talk to any other witnesses except the two girls. “If it was anybody other than Adam Jones, they would have investigated it,” Schaffer said of the police.  “If it was anybody other than Adam Jones, they wouldn’t have arrested him.” If Jones’ story is correct and witnesses can corroborate his side of the incident, it appears as though Jones won’t be in trouble from this incident. If anything, the woman who threw the bottle will be the one who gets in trouble from this incident.
