Bengals cornerback Adam Jones was arrested in early January after an incident at a Cincinnati hotel that left him facing multiple charges and that case reached its resolution in a courtroom on Tuesday morning.

Jones pleaded guilty to obstructing official business while a judge dismissed assault and disorderly conduct charges Jones faced after allegedly poking a security guard in the eye and resisting a police officer’s attempt to arrest him. A felony charge of harassment with a bodily substance was previously dismissed.

“I truly apologize for what I did, my actions. I’m trying to get better every day,” Jones said in court, via Terry Helmer of WCPO.

The charge Jones pleaded guilty to is a second-degree misdemeanor and he was sentenced to time served — two days — by the judge. He could face league discipline under the Personal Conduct Policy as a result of the incident.
