Adam Jones pleads guilty to one charge from his January arrest
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Bengals player Adam Jones apologized as he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge against him for his January arrest.
Jones pleaded guilty to obstructing official business, which is a misdemeanor. Misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and assault were dropped. Previously a charge of harassment with a bodily substance was also dropped.
The charges stemmed from his arrest at a downtown Cincinnati hotel on January 3. In the cruiser cam video, Jones is heard swearing and insulting officers. At one point he's heard telling the police sergeant taking him to jail that he hopes he "dies tomorrow".
Judge Dwayne Mallory credited him for the two days Jones spent in jail. Judge Mallory said he took several things into consideration for the sentence, but Jones' celebrity was not one of them.
