Jones was sentenced to one year of probation for his role in a Las Vegas strip club incident that left three people shot back in 2007.”One of the conditions of his probation was that he stays out of trouble,” Clark County District Attorney David Roger told The Associated Press.
Authorities in Cincinnati reported Jones tried to pull away from police after he was accused of shouting profanities in a Cincinnati bar. However, Jones maintains his innocence, denying the allegations after leaving jail. Stating he hadn’t been drinking and was only out with his wife celebrating her birthday.
To make matters more interesting, Roger is the same Nevada prosecutor who gained a 2008 jury conviction of pro football hall of famer O.J. Simpson in an armed robbery and kidnapping case. (Simpson is now serving nine to 33 years in a Nevada prison.)
However, it will be some time before Pacman finds out his fate, as Roger said it could be several weeks before he receives and reviews the Cincinnati police reports on Jones’ arrest. It is then he will decide whether to take the case to a Clark County District Court judge.
Bengals spokesman said the team had no comment on Jones’ most recent arrest. However, with Jones’ past and Rogers conviction resume, its possible we won’t be seeing ‘Pacman’ this upcoming season when the lockout is resolved, as he might be locked up.
