Adam Jones was in trouble. Key word: Was.
Jones’ agent, Peter Schaffer, tells PFT that Jones was acquitted by a Hamilton County municipal court judge on one charge of misdemeanor assault stemming from an incident occurring outside a Cincinnati bar earlier this year.
Jones was accused of assaulting a woman who appeared to pour a drink on him. Surveillance video seemed to indicate that Jones retaliated by striking the woman.
It’s still possible that Jones will face a civil lawsuit and/or discipline from the league. He won’t face any criminal sanctions.
