Adam “Pacman” Jones, the oft-arrested Bengals cornerback, has paid a fine to resolve his latest incident.

According to the Associated Press, Jones paid $130 for the fine and court costs. He was cited for disorderly conduct for an altercation with the police officer after a car he was a passenger in was pulled over.

Cincinnati TV station WKRC has video of the incident and reports that Jones was angry because the police were arresting his wife for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. The TV station explained that it couldn’t play most of the video because it mostly consisted of Jones yelling obscenities at the police.

In the portion of the video the TV station did play, Jones asks three times whether the police officer who pulled his wife over has a warrant. Jones apparently doesn’t realize that the police don’t need a warrant to pull someone over for a traffic violation.

This was Jones’s second incident of the year. He has a court date next week for his previous arrest, on an assault charge over an altercation with a woman at a Cincinnati bar. All told, Jones has been arrested at least seven times since the start of his NFL career.

  1. You would think a guy that spent as much time dealing with the justice system as Jones has might have a better idea about how it works.

  2. No character. Talent? Sure but no character. It’s why The Bungles will never win it all no matter how many draft picks they get. Desperation of seeking free agents from the State Pen League. I think Maurice Clarett may be available.

  3. He should have cuffed and stuffed! Police in the nati would do themselves a favor by putting a permanent monitoring device on Pacman to know where he is at all times!

  4. This was a ticket, not an arrest. When I was 8 months pregnant with my 2nd son, I pulled off in a parking space in our local town to see if my husband, who was driving his dad’s motorcycle, was ready to go home. He parked in a space behind me, walked up to the car, I asked if he was ready, he said yes and started to get back on the bike. I turned around and there was an officer writing him a ticket. I climbed from the car and ask what was going on. My husband told me they were writing him a ticket for taking to me on the wrong side of the car. We had literally spoken less than 10 words……! I explained to the officer I was 8 months pregnant, had a toddler in a car seat that I could not reach across to roll down the window. I did this very politely. He then proceeded to say “lady, you better shut the #”@# up our I will write you a ticket to match your husbands!”. The ticket he received for the ghastly offense of speaking to me on the wrong side of the car was disorderly conduct. $125 to just go pay it off. Which I would have refused to do and went to court to fight it, but my husband just paid it. So trust me, as a TOTALLY law abiding citizen, it isn’t too hard to get that ticket!

  5. All the networks were reporting he was “arrested” at first. Way to screw up the facts. There’s a huge difference between arrested and cited

  6. This just in… PACMAN has a wife!!! And after they both drank at a party, she drove for him to prevent him from getting a DUI that could jeopardize his paychecks.

    You have to admire a woman that marries this guy after all his womanizing and strip-club shenanigans and then takes a DUI on her record for him. She either really loves the guy, or she really loves the paycheck of a NFL player (even at league minimum, it’s much better than most of us will EVER see). Either way, that IS news!
