3 times Bengals cornerback Adam Jones made news

Bengals cornerback Adam Jones recently made headlines after blowing up at a reporter in the locker room on the first day of voluntary offseason workouts. This was his first interview since his Jan. 3 arrest. 

Before the interview started, Jones made it clear to reporters he wasn’t going “to talk about court,” but did answer Fox 19’s Joe Danneman’s question about how important it was for Jones to still be with the team after the arrest. 

A little while later, Danneman asked if Jones had anything to say to the fans after his arrest, and Jones kicked him out of the interview. The reporter complied, but Jones continued to berate the reporter for several minutes.

This is not the first time Jones has let his irritation or exasperation lead to incidents that made the news. Here are two other recent incidents:

January arrest. On Jan. 3, Jones was arrested after a physical altercation with a security guard outside the Millennium Hotel in downtown Cincinnati. After arriving at the Hamilton County Jail, Jones spat at a jail nurse and had to be physically restrained, court records show.

Talking about Pryor. On Dec. 11, Jones lit into former teammate and Cleveland Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor after a 23-10 win at FirstEnergy Stadium. Jones repeatedly answered “garbage” when reporters questioned him about Pryor, who caught one pass for 3 yards.

To make his point known, Jones picked up a nearby trash can and shook it while saying, “ Hold on let me find him. Hey, you in there? You in there?”
