The Cincinnati Bengals are once again dealing with the distraction of cornerback Adam Jones being in trouble with the law. This time, Jones was cited for disorderly conduct on Monday morning after the vehicle he was a passenger in was pulled over and the driver was booked for a DUI.
Jones chose to argue with the police officer (while he was also under the influence of alcohol) to the point the cop cited him, and now he must appear in court tomorrow, two days before the Bengals play the Cleveland Browns.
Given his arrest over the summer for allegedly hitting a woman outside of a club, he needs to be sat-down for at least one game.
This will send him a message that going forward, he has to choose who he associates himself with. His latest mishap came when he was cited for disorderly conduct after he and his friend were pulled-over and the driver had been drinking and was over the legal limit.
Those are the kind of situations he needs to distance himself from. But he’s a grown man and that’s ultimately his decision to make.
He just shouldn’t be allowed to make them as an NFL player if he continues to.
