Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is in trouble with the law again.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol told WCPO in Cincinnati that Jones was cited for disorderly conduct after a car he was a passenger in was pulled over at about 2:30 a.m.

The driver of the car was stopped for speeding and ended up charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence after refusing a field sobriety test.

Jones was then arrested for the disorderly conduct charge, a misdemeanor. He was released on his own recognizance.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, this is at least the eighth time Jones has been arrested since he was drafted in 2005.

When NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell began cracking down on players who misbehave off the field, Jones was the poster boy for NFL troublemakers, and off-field issues nearly derailed his career, causing him to miss the entire 2007 season, part of the 2008 season and the entire 2009 season. More recently Jones has said he has changed his ways and learned to avoid off-field trouble, although this is his second arrest of the year. He was previously arrested for hitting a woman at a Cincinnati bar, and he is scheduled for trial on October 7 on that charge.
