Adam Jones was involved in a minor car accident, where someone wrecked his Rolls Royce. His reaction to the situation should have Bengals fans worried.
Adam Jones has come a long way from the Pacman days in the beginning of his career. But once again, here we are looking at another example of his questionable behavior.
Jones lost his cool after being involved in a two-car accident that occurred in Amelia, Ohio, just minutes from Cincinnati. Thankfully, Jones showed restraint, citing his anger management classes.
Not reacting to the situation in full Pacman mode saved Jones from another trip to the slammer. But his now-viral tirade is not reflecting well on the Bengals. Watch the video here.
In the video, Jones shows the damage to the right side of his vehicle, cursing up a storm in the process. Pacman goes on to drive his luxury vehicle home despite the damaged condition. He mentions that he will sell the car once it’s fixed.
Jones has a long history of being in trouble with the law. His most recent arrest was on January 3, when Jones was taken-in by police for several charges, including assault. Those charges have since been dropped.

Many fans and writers in Cincy have been pushing for Jones’ release from the team, but yet he still remains on the roster.

How Fans Should React to Jones’ Latest Outburst
It can’t be easy being Adam Jones right now. Every time he makes a mistake, he gets blasted for it. This time has proven to be no different.
I personally feel that this situation is way overblown because of Jones’ checkered past. Every time he gets in trouble it’s like pouring salt in an open wound.
Realistically, Jones shouldn’t have acted in the manner he did. It’s clear that Jones still doesn’t grasp that at his level of celebrity, any and everything is under the microscope of the media. And the more you act out, the more likely you are to find yourself looking for work. Not to mention the fact he recorded himself this time.
Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis has always supported the troubled cornerback, since his arrival in the Queen City. Expect this time to be no different. At some point, you have to think Lewis shrugs his shoulders and moves on.
The Bengals aging starter is coming off a down year, where he started all 16 games for Cincinnati, but only managed one interception. No statement has been issued by the Bengals on Jones’ latest tirade. Expect for Jones to publicly apologize in the next few days.
Cincinnati will likely hold onto Jones for at least this season but may consider releasing him when his contract becomes a little more disposable for the organization.
