(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.
