CINCINNATI — Former Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones, 37, is waking up in the Hamilton County Justice Center again Monday morning.

According to court documents, police arrested Jones Monday morning after he punched and kicked a person in the head until the person was unconscious.

Police charged Jones with misdemeanor assault, and he faces a Hamilton County judge Monday at 9 a.m.

Jones was arrested in 2017 for allegedly "pushing and poking (a security guard) in the eye," outside of a hotel in Cincinnati. Police body camera footage was later released showing the scene around this arrest. Jones pleaded guilty to obstruction of official business for the incident.

In 2018, the Bengals didn't extend Jones' contract, releasing him as a free agent. Later that year, Jones signed a one-year contract with the Denver Broncos. But after seven games the team released him.

Jones retired from the NFL in 2019.
