CINCINNATI (AP) — The court case for Cincinnati Bengals player Adam “Pacman” Jones is on hold until next month.
A Hamilton County judge on Friday continued the case to Feb. 10. Prosecutor Joe Deters (DEE’-turs) has said he wants to know first what punishment Jones faces from the NFL. Jones’ attorneys agreed to waive his right to a speedy trial.
An NFL spokesman said Thursday that Jones’ case “remains under review.”
Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. He said he didn’t think he should have been arrested.
