Adam “Pacman” Jones has stayed out of trouble of late, but will reportedly turn himself into authorities later today, following an incident at a bar in Cincinnati after he attended a Reds game.
According to Pro Football Talk’s conversation with his agent, Peter Schaffer, Jones was approached by two clearly intoxicated women who asked for a photo with the Bengals’ cornerback and star return man.
Following a decline by Jones, one of the women reportedly threw a beer bottle at his head from behind, striking him from point-blank range. Jones responded by yelling, “What are you doing? Stop it!”
Schaffer then told PFT that several witnesses who he spoke with agreed with Jones’ recalling of the events.
“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.”
He also stated the police hadn’t interviewed any of the witnesses other than the two women.
Jones alerted fans to the incident via twitter, stating “Just got arrested for protecting myself. I will not let this break or change what I have work [ed] so hard for….”
The Bengals star had several scraps with the law early in his career, but hasn’t been in much trouble since his one-year suspension from 2007-2008.
