Bengals say Pacman arrested in case of mistaken identity

A rumor running rampant on Twitter and the Internet at large involves a contention that Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones was arrested after Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers.

The Bengals tell us that Pacman Jones indeed was arrested.  But the Bengals also claim that Jones has been released.

Per Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan, the police have characterized it as a case of mistaken identity.

So Pacman was indeed arrested.  But, according to the team, he was released without charges.
