Bengals cornerback Adam Jones arrested

CINCINNATI - Cincinnati Bengals' cornerback Adam Jones could appear before a Hamilton County judge Monday afternoon to be arraigned on charges stemming from an incident at a downtown Cincinnati bar.

Jones is charged with disorderly conduct while intoxicated and resisting arrest for an incident that occurred at the Scene Ultralounge bar on Walnut Street on July 10.

When he was released from jail a few hours after the incident, Jones told 9 News he thought the charges were ridiculous. His lawyer says Jones did nothing wrong.

Jones' agent, Peter Schaffer, tells reporters that Jones was at the bar celebrating his wife's birthday with neighbors when another woman threw a punch at Jones' wife. Schaffer adds that Jones walked up to officers at the bar and said he wanted to file charges against the woman.

Other witnesses say, according to Schaffer, that Jones became upset as the other woman walked away and police became more concerned about the situation.

On his Twitter account, Jones said he wasn't drunk at the time.

We'll have Jones' arraignment at 12:30 p.m. Monday covered for you, with updates here at and on 9 News.
