‘Pacman’ Jones held for assault of woman

Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Adam “Pacman” Jones was arrested on Monday on charges of punching a woman last week in a late-night confrontation in downtown Cincinnati, police said. It is the football player’s latest bout with legal troubles.

Jones, who has been suspended twice by the National Football League for violations of league policy, was accused by Shannon Wesley, 34, of punching her on Wednesday night after an argument, causing minor injuries, a police report said.

Wesley said that Jones, 29, hit her and then drove away, according to the report. Jones was arrested on assault charges and then released on his own recognizance, according to police and court records.

Representatives for Jones, the Bengals and the NFL could not be reached immediately for comment. Jones is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Jones in 2007 and 2008 for violations of the league’s personal conduct policy.

Jones was arrested in 2011 and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest for pulling away from police officers as they tried to handcuff him after he was kicked out of a Cincinnati bar.
