Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones sentencing postponed in OTR nightclub assault
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Former Bengal Adam “Pacman” Jones was set to be sentenced Monday after pleading no contest to assaulting a security guard at an Over-the-Rhine nightclub, but the case was postponed.
It was rescheduled for Nov. 8 to determine the restitution amount.
Jones, 37, faces up to six months in jail.
The former Bengal who retired from the NFL in 2019 was accused of punching and kicking the security guard at Clutch OTR on Vine Street early Feb. 15.
The security guard lost consciousness, according to court records.
The charge is punishable by up to six months in jail.
Jones has been in trouble before.
In 2019, he was arrested at an Indiana casino after officials said he became belligerent when he was accused of cheating.
Jones played for the Bengals between 2010-2017. The Bengals declined to pick up his $5.5 million contract option.
He played for the Denver Broncos before he was released.
Jones announced his retirement in May 2019.
Earlier this month, Jones announced he adopted the sons of his good friend and former Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry.
Henry, the Bengals 2005 third-round pick, died in December of 2009 after falling from his fiancé's pick-up truck in North Carolina.
