According to Indiana Gaming Commission agents at Rising Star Casino in Rising Sun, former NFL player Adam "Pacman" Jones was arrested Wednesday morning, February 27.

Agents were called to investigate "a patron" for possible cheating at a table game.

"IGC responded to the table games room, and upon arrival, the patron immediately became verbally combative and disorderly with IGC Enforcement Agents and RSC personnel," an IGC news release states.

That patron, Adam Jones, was placed under arrest for Disorderly Conduct, Public Intoxication, Intimidation, and Resisting Arrest. Additional charges may be filed.

Formal charges may not be filed until Thursday, as the Ohio County Courthouse and its offices are closed on Wednesdays.

Original story published at 8:46 a.m.:

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Former Cincinnati Bengals player Adam “Pacman” Jones was arrested at Rising Star Casino in Rising Sun early Wednesday morning.

Jones, 35, was booked into jail at the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center at around 3:10 a.m. 

A knowledgeable source tells Eagle Country 99.3 that Jones is facing charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

Jones has visited southeastern Indiana casinos before. In February 2015, Jones was escorted out of Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg, but not arrested. He posted a profanity-filled video on his Instagram account concerning news reports about the incident. He issued an apology two days later.

Jones played 14 seasons in the NFL. Most of his career was spent as a cornerback and punt returner for the Cincinnati Bengals from 2010 through the 2017 season, with a Pro Bowl season in 2015. He played in seven games for the Denver Broncos in 2018 before being released in November.

Eagle Country 99.3 will share more on this story as information becomes available.
