Take a seat sports fans, because the news I’m about to throw at you is heavy. You’ll never guess which NFL athlete was arrested.
Adam “Pacman” Jones has been involved in an incident with Cincinnati police.The Bengals cornerback was arrested outside of the Scene Ultra Lounge bar at 2:35 a.m. Sunday in the 600 block of Walnut Street on one count each disorderly conduct (while intoxicated) and resisting arrest. (via)
Jones took his wife out for her birthday, and sometime in the night, another woman punched her in the face. Instead of acting all cool about it and shifting the tension into a threesome, Jones told the police. Wait, then why did he get arrested?
