Cincinnati Bengals player Adam 'Pacman' Jones won't be released from jail Tuesday due to a court-ordered blood test, a spokesman for the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday morning.

The sheriff's office employee who conducts such tests already has gone home for the day, so the soonest Jones, 33, can be post would be Wednesday, said Mike Robison, sheriff's spokesman.

Court records show Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Richard Bernat ordered a blood test to determine if Jones has "HIV, STD and TB" following his arrest early Tuesday on a felony charge of harassment with a bodily fluid.

Jones is accused of spitting on a jail nurse when he was being booked into the jail about 12:30 a.m. following his arrest on three misdemeanor charges: assault, disorderly conduct and obstructing official business. The Sheriff's Office said the nurse was trying to get his vitals, which is part of normal protocol, when Jones spit on her hand.

His bond was set at $37,500 in a brief court appearance. He returns to court on Jan. 13.

Cincinnati police took him into custody Downtown just after midnight.

He is accused of yelling and banging on a glass door and cursing at a security guard in the 100 block of West Eighth Street, police wrote on his arrest slip.

Later Tuesday morning, a police spokesman corrected the location of the incident and arrest, saying the arrest slip contained a typo. The location was changed to 151 W. Fifth St. Police said it happened in front of the Millennium Hotel.

That is where Jones is accused of cursing at the guard, pushed the man and poked his eye.

When police arrested Jones, he tried to pull away from officers and leave, they wrote in court records.

He is accused of kicking, head-butting and refusing to enter a police car, they wrote in a criminal complaint.

Jones' attorney, Lauren Staley, said he vehemently denies the accusations.

"He waited on scene when police were called with the intent of explaining the situation to them. They essentially didn't hear his side of the story before placing him under arrest," she said. 

A Bengals spokesman said they were aware of Jones' arrest and "working to gather full information, but policy is that it's inappropriate for the Club to comment on unresolved legal matters."

Jones, whose address is listed in court paperwork as Atlanta, Georgia, signed a three-year contract before the past season which ended on Sunday in a home game win against Baltimore.

This is not his first arrest during his 10-year NFL career.

He was acquitted of a 2013 assault charge, court records show. Jones was found not guilty following an incident outside a Cincinnati bar in June of that year. 

He reached a plea deal in a 2011 case involving charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. The resisting arrest charge was dropped.

At the time of his 2011 arrest, he was on probation in connection with a 2007 no-contest plea to a Las Vegas strip club melee that left three people wounded. He was ordered to do an additional 75 hours of community service.
