Adam “Pacman” Jones has found himself in trouble with the law again. Jones was arrested in Hamilton County, Ohio at around 2 am.

Jones is being accused of knocking a nightclub bouncer unconscious. Jones now faces a misdemeanor assault charges, and will have to face a judge on Monday.

However, it does appear that Jones is set for release. Jones posted 10% of the $25,000 bond which should be able to set the situation clear.

According to reports, Jones punched and kicked security guard Kevin Street till he was unconscious. Street works at the Clutch OTR club in Cincinnati’s hip Over-the-Rhine neighborhood which is where the incident took place.

Adam Jones & His Previous Run-Ins With the Law

This wasn’t the first the 37-year old ex-NFL player had been arrested. Jones missed the entirety of the 2007 season after being involved in a shooting incident in Las Vegas.

Additionally, in 2017, he was arrested for reportedly “pushing and poking (a security guard) in the eye” in Cincinnati at a hotel.

Further, he was locked up for two weeks in jail after being caught cheating in a casino in Indiana. Moreover, in 2018, Jones was involved in a violent brawl with an airline employee.

As you can see, Jones’ NFL career was marred by off-the-field antics and miscues. He was always involved in some sham or the other, and even after retiring, it seems that old habits die hard.
