  • CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones pleaded not guilty Tuesday to an assault charge after police say he hit a woman at a nightclub last week.

    The 29-year-old Jones’ plea came a day after he was arrested and then released on his own recognizance. He was able to make it to the start of the Bengals’ training camp Tuesday but has declined to comment.

    Jones is accused of hitting a 34-year-old woman at a downtown Cincinnati nightclub Wednesday shortly before midnight. A police report lists the injury as apparently minor.

    Jones was defending himself, his agent, Peter Schaffer, told The Cincinnati Enquirer on Monday. Schaffer did not immediately return a call for comment Tuesday. Jones’ attorney, Edward Perry, declined to comment.

    Surveillance video of altercation, obtained by a local radio station and verified as authentic by Cincinnati police, appears to show Jones approaching two seated women outside the club. Then, a third woman approaches Jones and appears to confront him. The grainy video shows the woman reach toward Jones’ face but it’s unclear what she does or whether she’s holding anything in her hand.
