On Jan. 3, Bengals’ football player Adam Jones, 33, was arrested at the Millennium Hotel in Cincinnati for assaulting a hotel employee.
On Monday night, police released a 20-minute video of expletive-filled statements made by Jones towards a police officer during the arrest.
In the patrol car, Jones cusses out police Sgt. Jarrod Cotton with the following statements:
“You a b—- a– n—-r.”
“I hope you die tomorrow.”
“Suck my d—.”
“F— you, b—-.”
“I’d spit on your a–, if I could.”
Cotton himself is African American. In the video, Cotton tries to reason with Jones, who attempted to physically assault officers. “You didn’t want to cooperate… That’s how we ended up where we are, now,” Cotton directs to Jones in the video.
According to USA Today, Jones began spitting on a nurse after she tried examining him at the jail. He was forced into a restraint chair. He is expected to face misdemeanor charges of assault, disorderly conduct and obstructing police.
Jones’ attorneys, Alex Triantafilou and Timothy Schneider, released the following statement on the incident:
“Adam Jones is deeply embarrassed and remorseful for his conduct and language after being arrested in early January. Mr. Jones has the utmost respect for law-enforcement and the difficulties police encounter on a daily basis. As it relates to the allegations, and upon advice of counsel, Mr. Jones will not be commenting upon legal proceedings at this time. Mr. Jones is committed to the process of counseling and anger management, in order to ensure that such situations never occur in the future. Adam loves Cincinnati and considers it home. He sincerely apologize to the officers, the Cincinnati Bengals organization and all the fans in Cincinnati.”
Then, the Bengals also released a statement:
“We are extremely disappointed with Adam’s behavior. The behavior in the video is not what we expect from our players. The Club is aware that Adam has put forth his own apology, however, we also offer an apology to the public and to our loyal fans.”
For those who don’t want to watch the full video, Jones calls the officer a bi— 21 times, tells him to suck his d— 11 times in 18 mins.
