CINCINNATI - Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was arrested Monday morning, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Jones was cited for disorderly conduct after a 2013 Dodge Durango he was a passenger in was pulled over on State Route 125 near mile marker 1 in Cincinnati at about 2:30 am., authorities said.
The driver of that vehicle, Tishana F. Holmes, 33, was stopped for driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. Holmes, who had a Georgia driver's license, was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence. According to the OSP police report, Holmes refused a field sobriety test.
During the stop, Jones was then arrested for the disorderly charge. Both OVI and disorderly conduct are misdemeanor charges.
Jones and Holmes were released on their own recognizance and are scheduled to appear in court at 12:30 pm. on Sept. 27.
When called for comment on Jones' arrest, Jack Brennan, public relations director for the Bengals, said it is the organization's policy to "not comment on legal matters that have not been resolved."
Jones celebrated his 30th birthday Sunday night. He posted a photo of his party to his Instagram and Twitter accounts.
Jones has a history of scrapes with the law.
A series of arrests in 2006 and 2007 led to Jones being suspended from the NFL in 2008. He returned in 2009 with the Dallas Cowboys. He was released after that season when he was identified as a suspect in a 2007 Las Vegas shooting. He was never charged in the incident.
In July 2011, months after signing with the Bengals, Jones faced two misdemeanor charges for an altercation at Scene Ultra Lounge where he was accused of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
