Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones said Cincinnati Police had no good reason to arrest him at a downtown bar overnight.
“It’s ridiculous. … It don’t make no sense,” Jones told WCPO Channel 9 after he was released from the Hamilton County Justice Center Sunday morning.
Jones said he wasn’t drunk, didn’t yell obscenities and didn’t resist arrest, as the police report contends. He said he had taken his wife out for her birthday.
Cincinnati police arrested Jones at 2:35 a.m. Sunday at the Scene bar at 639 Walnut Street. Jones, 27, was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Jones, wearing a neck brace following surgery for a football injury, said it wouldn’t make sense for him to resist arrest.
“The only thing I can do is be me and do what I’m supposed to do. I was not yelling at the police. I was not yell(ing) profanity at the police. And at the end of the day … I’m the bad guy,” he said.
Police said Jones was disorderly and shouting profanities inside the bar. He was escorted outside and asked to calm down but continued being disruptive, police said.
Police told Jones he was under arrest but he resisted, tightening his arms and pulling away.
