Adam Jones’ assault trial continued, no new date set

BenJarvus Green-Ellis AP

Bengals cornerback Adam Jones was supposed to stand trial on assault charges Monday, but the day at the courtroom ended before it started.

Kimball Perry of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the case was continued until a later date. That date is unknown but Perry “bet” that the new date would be after the end of the football season.

Jones was facing charges related to a June incident at a bar in Cincinnati. Jones has been accused of assaulting a 34-year-old woman in an incident that was caught on video. Jones has argued that he was protecting himself from the woman, who appeared to stick something in Jones’ face before he struck her.

Jones could face discipline from the league under the personal conduct policy as a result of the incident, although any league action may wait until the legal system sorts out whether Jones was guilty of anything more than not walking away from a situation that he probably should have before it escalated to the point of criminal charges.

    I can’t defend PacMan. He’s really the lone remaining turd on the Bengals roster.

    Glad the Bengals have Dre Kirkpatrick in waiting. He should leapfrog both Jones and Newman before the end of the season.

    Even their uniforms remind me of orange prison jumpsuits.

    If we are following the logic of Pacman’s last brush with the law, shouldn’t the victim here be suing the bar? Pacman doesn’t have the money!

    Wow. Did you put a lot of thought into that very original comment?

    I guess a woman can hit a guy in the face with a bottle or poke a guy in the face with a bottle of beer or pore it on him and get away??? Now I wonder why that is????????????

    Can we quit with the “que the” posts yet? They were cliche three years ago. Just let the lowlifes hate and ignore it.

    Pac Man needs to just stay home, seems like people will instigate this guy bc they know they will get a reaction out of him. I dont condone smacking any women but in this instant I can see why he’d want too.

    “Jones has argued that he was protecting himself from the woman”

    Oh ya, he threw a straight right into her face, that’s how he was “protecting himself.”

    He’s a big time turd and if you support him, you’re an even bigger turd.

    SMH

    I don’t condone hitting women, but if a woman decides that she is going put a bottle in a man’s face or strike him with it, she better be prepared for the consequences. If he is guilty of anything it’s not walking away from a drunk woman.

    I find it funny that Pac Man has more “accomplishments” under the pro-wrestling portion of his Wiki page than the pro football portion…

    why has this not been taken down?

    You wanna have a post taken down for the use of the word “turd”? Really? You offended by that? You’d hate me then. I got lots of other words that far more accurately describe pacman jones…..

    Well I guess that answers that.
