RISING SUN, Ind. — Former Bengal Adam "Pacman" Jones agreed to a plea deal Thursday after being arrested in a casino cheating case in Indiana.

Jones was arrested in February at the Rising Star Casino and was charged with cheating at gambling, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, intimidation and resisting arrest.

The motion filed Thursday said Jones would agree to plead guilty to the charges of cheating at gambling, a felony, and resisting arrest, a misdemeanor.

If the judge accepts the plea, all other charges will be dropped and Jones will serve 10 days in jail. Jones will also be on probation under the plea and not allowed to drink alcohol for a year and a half or be in possession of a deadly weapon unless given permission by his probation officer. He will also be barred from contacting or being on the property of the Rising Star Casino.

Jones was released from police custody in February after posting bond.

This is not the first run-in with police for Jones. In 2017, Jones pleaded guilty to obstructing official business after he fought a security guard outside of Cincinnati hotel. He was also escorted from the property of the Hollywood Casino in 2015, but not charged with a crime.
