Former NFL cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was convicted of assault, WKRC reports. A judge sentenced Jones to 180 days in jail but suspended all but 30 days of the sentence.

Police arrested Jones in February after a fight at Clutch OTR in Cincinnati, according to TMZ Sports. Jones punched and kicked a bouncer in the head, causing the victim to lose consciousness.

Jones pleaded no contest to the two misdemeanor assault charges. He is scheduled to report to jail Nov. 29, TMZ Sports reports.

Jones also will pay a $100 fine, serve nine months of probation, has a 9 p.m. curfew and must abstain from alcohol.

In 2019, Jones reached a plea agreement to resolve charges filed against him as a result of a February arrest at an Indiana casino. He entered a guilty plea to one count of felony cheating at gambling and one count of misdemeanor resisting law enforcement and spent 10 days behind bars.

In 2017, Jones pleaded guilty to obstructing official business for an incident outside a downtown Cincinnati hotel.

Jones, the sixth overall choice of the Titans in 2005, retired from the NFL in 2019.

  1. That sentence is pathetic. Knock a bouncer out by kicking him in the head and you get 30 days and $100 misdemeanor fine. Sickening.

  2. The more things change, the more things stay the same. I just had flashbacks to last decade. Good times, Pacman.

  3. Bengals fan here. It’s time for extended jail. Honestly he’s done a lot of good things in the community and even took in Chris Henry’s kids, but you can’t go around assaulting people whenever you don’t get your way. And you’re 40 something years old. Grow up and get out of the clubs.

  4. How many dozens of arrests does this guy have for everything from assault to shooting people, and this is the first time he receives any sort of punishment. If you want to call it that. 30 days? Lmfao. People do have it right when they say the justice system is broken. Pac-Man Jones is walking proof of that

  5. When I was a law student, Pacman Jones was the centerpiece of my criminal law exam, where he was fictitiously cast as committing crimes all over town. Never good to have that reputation precede you.

  6. After all the stuff he’s done he finally gets some jailtime but it’s nothing but a slap on the wrist. They should also require him to leave the area as part of his deal. One of these days he’s going to mess with the wrong dude and that’ll be the last we hear of Pacman.

  7. After hearing the interview with him about his relationship with Chris Henry, and Henry’s kids(s) I was so relieved; I figured he’d left all this crap behind. I won’t say I’m surprised, but I sure am disappointed.

  8. So the average person with a past like Jones goes to jail for much longer, please don’t tell me there isn’t a tiered sentencing guide.

  9. There was a time a number of years ago I really thought Pacman had turned things around. Thought he was a success story. sadly, he has had a few instances and it turns out I’m not such a good judge of character, cause I was way wrong about him.

  10. “Jones punched and kicked a bouncer in the head, causing the victim to lose consciousness. . . . . A judge sentenced Jones to 180 days in jail but suspended all but 30 days of the sentence.

    This is at least his third conviction.

    How do these so-called “judges”, who are supposed to protect society, get these appointments?

  11. next time he does something or violates his probation and he get’s punished, I don’t want to hear him crying or trying to blame the system. if you look at it, he’s gotten a ton of “preferential ” treatment
