Pacman Jones

Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge this week, stemming from an altercation earlier this year.

The NFL veteran was arrested at a hotel in downtown Cincinnati in January, after getting into an altercation with a security guard. He allegedly shoved and poked him in the eye and refused to comply with law enforcement officers.

Jones was facing misdemeanor charges of assault, disorderly conduct and obstructing official business, as well as a felony count of harassment with a bodily substance. However, as part of a plea deal, Municipal Court Judge Dwane Mallory dismissed two misdemeanor counts -- as well as the felony count -- at the prosecutor's request.

He was sentenced Jones to time served (two days) on the obstructing official business count.

In court, Jones apologized for his behavior.

"I'd like to apologize for my actions that night, to the police officer; that is not an example of me or how I want my kids to see me. I truly apologize for what I did, for my actions. I'm trying to get better every day."
