Two charges against Cincinnati Bengals player Adam Jones have been dropped after the veteran cornerback agreed to a plea deal Tuesday.

Jones pleaded guilty to obstructing official business, a second-degree misdemeanor. Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Dwane Mallory dismissed Jones' assault and disorderly conduct charge. 

The case stems from an altercation at a downtown Cincinnati hotel. Jones was jailed Jan. 3 in the latest incident in a career marked by off-the-field issues.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters dismissed a felony charge related to an allegation Jones spit on a nurse at the jail.

Jones spoke in court and apologized to the officer who handled the case. 

Judge Mallory said he considered many factors in the case, but Jones' celebrity status did not play a role.

Jones entered counseling and anger management classes.

He also could face discipline from the NFL.

"We have been monitoring developments in this matter which continues to be reviewed under the personal conduct policy. We have no timetable on any potential discipline," an NFL spokesperson wrote in an email Tuesday.
