Witness testimony began Monday after brief opening statements.

Jones has pleaded not guilty and was released on his own recognizance after his June arrest. He is accused of hitting a 34-year-old woman at a downtown Cincinnati nightclub. A police report listed the injury as apparently minor.

The trial is expected to continue Tuesday afternoon.

Aside from the legal outcome, Jones could be punished by the National Football League under its conduct policy.
