Bengals' Jones to go on trial on assault charge
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones is set to go on trial on an assault charge after police say he hit a woman at a nightclub.
Jones's trial is scheduled to begin Monday. He has pleaded not guilty and was released on his own recognizance after his arrest in June.
Jones is accused of hitting a 34-year-old woman at a downtown Cincinnati nightclub. A police report listed the injury as apparently minor.
Jones could be punished by the National Football League under its conduct policy.
Jones has had previous legal troubles. Those troubles include pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct in another case. He had been accused of shouting profanities and trying to pull away as police arrested him at a Cincinnati bar in 2011.
