Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was accused by police of making offensive comments while drunk during a traffic stop early Monday and was given a disorderly conduct citation.
Jones, who has had a spate of legal troubles, was arrested around 2:30 a.m. after the vehicle he was in was pulled over for driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone on a highway in Cincinnati, Ohio State Patrol Lt. Anne Ralston said.
The driver was cited for drunken driving while Jones was cited for disorderly conduct. Both charges are misdemeanors.
Jones and the driver were released and have court hearings set for Friday.
