Early this morning, we brought you the unfortunate – yet rather unsurprising – news that Bengals CB Adam Jones had been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct while intoxicated and resisting arrest.

But after he was released from the Hamilton County (Ohio) Justice Center this morning, he told WCPO that he was an innocent man.

"I hadn't been drinking,” he told the TV station. “I was with my wife. It was her birthday. It don't make no sense. There is no reason why I should have got locked up. No reason."

Police said he was rowdy and was asked by bar management to leave the establishment early Sunday morning. Jones allegedly refused and shouted obscenities. The police say he resisted arrest. Jones, who’s in a neck brace while recovering from an injury, says that couldn’t have happened.

“Didn't resist arrest. I'm in a neck brace. How am I resisting arrest?" said Jones. "I just had surgery. So why would I be resisting arrest? It doesn't make sense for me to resist arrest."

Well to be fair, it would make sense to resist arrest if he didn’t, you know, want to be arrested, neck brace or no. Jones is scheduled for arraignment Monday morning, and he offered an apology to Bengals fans.

"The only thing I can do is apologize but it's at the point now where I'm going to take this to another step,” Jones said. “It's ridiculous because like...the only thing I can do is be me and do what I'm supposed to do. But I was not yelling at the police. I did not yell profanities at the police and at the end of the day I'm the one who's the bad guy."

Everyone should be given a second chance or is that third,fourth,fifth? If this guy didn't run a 4.3 he would be in jail a long time ago.
