Back in early June, Adam "Pacman" Jones was arrested after a woman accused him of assaulting her outside of a bar in Cincinnati. Jones claimed that he was the victim in the case and that the woman had struck him with a beer bottle, which caused him to act in self-defense. But he was still hit with assault charges after the woman told police that he hit her. Jones was released on his own recognizance, though, and allowed to play in the NFL at the start of the 2013-14 season.
And it sounds like he will be able to play the rest of the season, too. Because earlier today, a judge in Jones' case found him not guilty of assaulting the woman. So while Jones could still be punished by the NFL because of the conduct policy that it has in place, the Bengals cornerback is more or less off the hook at this point for his role in the incident with the woman.
One case down, one more to go.
