BY Cameron DaSilva • May 16, 2017

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones was involved in an altercation with police back in January, and on Tuesday, the case was resolved. According to multiple reports, Jones pled guilty to a single misdemeanor charge with counts of assault and disorderly conduct being dismissed as part of the agreed upon plea deal. Jones spent two days in jail for obstructing official business.

The 33-year-old 11th-year pro apologized to the officers in court on Tuesday:

“I would 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, so I truly apologize for what I did. I’m trying to get better every day with the necessary treatments that I’m taking.”
