(AP) CINCINNATI: Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones has pleaded not guilty to an assault charge after police say he tried to hurt a woman.
Tuesday’s not guilty plea came a day after Jones was arrested and then released on his own recognizance.
A police complaint says the 29-year-old Jones is accused of striking the Cincinnati woman shortly before midnight on June 5. The police report lists the injury as apparently minor.
A message left with Jones’ agent was not immediately returned Tuesday.
It’s not the first time Jones has been in trouble. He pleaded guilty in January 2012 to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. He had been accused of shouting profanities and trying to pull away as police arrested him at a Cincinnati bar months earlier.
