Cincinnati Bengals CB Adam Jones pays fine for latest citation


 

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones latest mishap with the law may be behind him now after he reportedly paid the necessary fines today:

A court official says Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones has paid a fine for disorderly conduct after police accused him of making offensive comments in a traffic stop.

The official says Jones paid $130 for the fine and court costs Thursday, the day before a scheduled arraignment in Cincinnati.

 

Jones was cited Monday for disorderly conduct after celebrating his birthday, and leaving a party for it, he was a passenger in a car pulled over by police and then made offensive comments while drunk.

It looks as though he’s good to go Sunday vs the Cleveland Browns, which is great news since Reggie Nelson and Leon Hall didn’t practice again today, meaning Jones is in line to get the start against a Browns team that scored 31 points last week.

Still, even a minor citation will draw the eye of Roger Goodell given Jones’ long and troubled past, and he may face some kind of punishment form the NFL at some point.
