'Pacman' pleads guilty to bar incident

Cincinnati Bengal Adam Pacman Jones pleaded guilty today to his role in July bar incident and was placed on probation by a judge, who also chewed out the professional football player.

This is unprofessional behavior, Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Brad Greenberg told Jones today. If you want to be regarded as a professional, you need to act like one at all times.

Greenberg, calling Jones actions that July night foolish, placed him on one year of probation, ordered him to stay out of the Scene Ultra bar, to pay a $250 fine and court costs and do 50 hours of community service.

The conviction, which carried a maximum jail term of 30 days, could violate Jones probation in Nevada following a previous arrest.

Officials for the Bengals and the NFL were not immediately available for comment on the conviction. Jones currently is a free agent.

Jones, 28, was at the bar in the 600 block of Walnut Street Downtown in the early morning hours of July 10 with a woman he called his fiancee but his lawyer, Ed Perry, called his wife. An argument broke out and police arrived.

Once there, they tried to get Jones to calm down but he aggressively cursed at police. When they tried to handcuff him, he waved his arms and tensed his muscles to try to prevent that.

He was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. In court today, Assistant Cincinnati Solicitor Karla Burtch dismissed the resisting charge in exchange for Jones pleading guilty to disorderly conduct and giving an apology.

I apologize for my attitude during the incident, Jones said.

My attitude wasnt the best. I was trying to protect my fiancee … someone that I love.

He added he shouldnt have acted that way toward police or jail workers when he was booked in to the Hamilton County Justice Center after his arrest.

I truly realize I could have handled it a whole lot better, Jones said.

It was a physical thing rather than a verbal thing, Burtch said of the reason for his arrest.

Burtsch said police were stressed that night because of two previous physical altercations at the bar, neither involving Jones, before the incident for which Jones was arrested.

Mr. Jones aggressively approached (police) repeatedly, she said.

So I wonder how many games Roger GODell will suspend him for this...
