Adam “Pacman” Jones arrested again

AP

Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is in trouble with the law again.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol told WCPO in Cincinnati that Jones was cited for disorderly conduct after a car he was a passenger in was pulled over at about 2:30 a.m.

The driver of the car was stopped for speeding and ended up charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence after refusing a field sobriety test.

Jones was then arrested for the disorderly conduct charge, a misdemeanor. He was released on his own recognizance.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, this is at least the eighth time Jones has been arrested since he was drafted in 2005.

When NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell began cracking down on players who misbehave off the field, Jones was the poster boy for NFL troublemakers, and off-field issues nearly derailed his career, causing him to miss the entire 2007 season, part of the 2008 season and the entire 2009 season. More recently Jones has said he has changed his ways and learned to avoid off-field trouble, although this is his second arrest of the year. He was previously arrested for hitting a woman at a Cincinnati bar, and he is scheduled for trial on October 7 on that charge.

  1. And I remember when football was about football. Went to the Oilers games in Rice Stadium to watch George Blanda play when I was a kid.

    Now it’s all about arrests, rehab, fines, divas, drugs and……..(sigh)…..

  2. I’m not a huge Pacman fan but his buddy is the one that committed the crime. Making a comment to a cop and having the guy play god is not a crime.

    These guys have always been trouble. The difference today is that we have a 24 hr news cycle and instant news via social media. LT was way worse than Pacman

  4. Maybe Pacman should have shut up because he’s got the most to lose?

    Nah, that wouldn’t make sense….

    Because you were there…. If you don’t like police because they make judgement calls when laws are broken, just say that. Or go become one!

  6. We have this big win, and what do you do? You get arrested!!! Sure, sure it’s not your fault. The policemen made you resist arrest. Control your damn temper or stay home all the time.

  7. Jones has done some horrible things in the past and he deserves the bad reputation. But disorderly conduct? Come on, this is overblown. Also there is plenty of history with Cincinnati police escalating and overreacting, especially with black athletes.

  8. This guy must have some kind of learning disability!
    I wish Dre Kirkpatrick could stay healthy and start developing some kind of game so we can get rid of this fool. Adam Jones has some talent but no brains whatsoever.

  9. I didn’t like him until I read this post. lol, Good for you Adam. Cops get away with way to much as it is. Good on him!!!

    I’ll bet George Blanda never mouthed off to a police officer………besides he was too busy playin’ QB and the kicker…….

    How come you never hear about kickers getting arrested, just wondering.

    Good observation. Though….the fact that it is the most cush job on the planet and that not one of them would jeopardize it probably has something to do with it.

  12. Disorderly persons is just a nicer way of saying misdemeanor, which could mean he did one of any number of things, which include saying something sarcastic to the officer that he didn’t want to hear…sort of a ticky-tack charge which will result in a fine (if it was something stupid like making a comment), but at least it’s different, in a good way, than what he used to get arrested for

  13. The National Felons League could probably field a full team pretty soon from behind bars. Tired of hearing about this kind of stuff. Play ball guys.

  14. This guy is making 6 figures a year. Has been arrested 8 times and yet this guy is still in the league. How many times do you have to show that you’re a screw up before the NFL says enough? The league should put in a policy that if you get arrested more than two times, you’re done. You’re banned from the league for life. If your average American gets arrested multiple times, they’re lucky to get a job at Mcdonalds.

  15. I guess a Bengal can’t change his stripes. And cops have the most under appreciated jobs in the world. At 230 am pulling over a vehicle that’s a high tension situation they have serious concern about being shot or assaulted during the stop so it’s definitely not overreacting to lock someone up for “mouthing off”. Because we are supposed to just accept that that’s all that happened. I’m sorry but none of us were there and PAC man is a career criminal. I’m going to believe that he deserved the arrest until proof emerges that he didn’t.

  16. You can paint a turd orange with black stripes, he still ends up being a turd with stripes. I believe it was his attempt to not get burned over and over by Josh Gordon this weekend. Stay Classy Ben Gals!

  17. Everyone please remember: Back in ’07 Jones was interviewed by Johnny Cakes Auville and stated that, “Trouble just be following me around where-evers I done go.”

    I guess he was right.

    At least he bought Mama Grizzly at a discount price from Drab and Valdez.

    Different sport but Babe Ruth partied harder than most and Ty Cobb was one of the worst human beings of his time. The guys of yester-year were not better people, just less written about or stalked.

  19. Still running with the wrong crowd pacman?

    Really? you couldnt shake the fleas after all those times in handcuffs.

    I’d be shocked if Goodell didn’t suspend him just for that issue.

    2 issues still remain, bad friends and having a big mouth. He did no crime, so all he had to do was SHUT UP.

    Bad friends + big mouth = watching football from the couch

  20. Adam keep your pimp hand Adam keep your pimp hand Adam keep your pimp hand strong! lol! Wonder if he has a personal cell he goes to every time he’s arrested? Adam are you going to take your things with you? Nah just keep them here i’ll be back in a few weeks!

  21. “Ya don’t live in Cleveland, ya live in Cincinnati!” -Sam Wyche
    Words to live by.

    I’m still laughing lmao! Like it’s really nice to live in cincy bahahahaha!

  22. Just think of the talent the NFL can bring in if they were able to sign inmates in prison. Such a great message to send to young kids. “You can get arrested 7 times and still make it in the NFL”

  23. Kinda feel bad for him. Good player on the field. Poor decision maker off of it. Just wish these guys could just stay home at night and be ok with that.

  24. I’d love to know what he said.

    Disorderly conduct is such a broadly and vaguely defined law. The cops use it and other things like “harassment” as blanket charges that they can apply to anyone for saying or doing just about anything.

    I, for one, don’t understand why being rude to a cop is a crime. Last I checked, cops are just people and we all have a right to free speech.

  25. 1. He wasn’t arrested. He was given a citation.

    2. He called the cop a pig. Sorry folks. That isn’t getting him banned.

    3. As usual. This is overblown into him being a criminal.

    Please. This is nothing. Move on. Nothing to see here.

    2:30a.m. and on the road? The Gentleman’s Clubs in Cincy must close early in Cincy.

    You can look long and hard and you won’t find a strip club in Cincinnati.
