( Cincinnati ) - Assault charges are pending against Bengals cornerback Adam Jones for an incident downtown on Wednesday, June 5th.
A police report says officers were called to FB's on West 6th street just before midnight. In that report, a woman in her 30's claims Adam Jones punched her in the head.
Original reports by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter say Jones was approached by two intoxicated women at the Reds game and threw a bottle of beer during a picture request.

Jones posted the following message on his Twitter account Monday afternoon:
Mitch spoke to the great Mets pitcher about playing in Seattle, drug problems and rehab. Doc: A Memoir is out now.
Jack Zduriencik brought Michael Morse in to the fold to bolster the lineup, but Morse isn't the centerpiece of the M's rebuild.

Geoff Baker joined Mitch today and said Jack Zduriencik should wrap up his rebuilding plan soon. Zduriencik recently told Softy that the front office needs seven years (or two more) to complete the rebuilding.
Baker couldn’t see through the Jack Z goggles on this day.
“Right now this team’s having trouble getting close to contention in any one year,” Baker said. “For me that’s not good enough. If you’re going to ask for seven years as a general manager, you have to be able to point to at least one .500 season since 2009, and they can’t do that right now.”
The two-year window would be a dangerous proposition. The idea the team could be successful in two years assumes the farm system prospects will bloom as legitimate major-leaguers. However, there’s no guarantee those players will rise. Baker said there’s possibly a better chance those players will flop as opposed to flourish.
With no budding young superstars, the Mariners are forced to overuse their veterans. Baker said despite playing through injury, Michael Morse can barely run the bases. A recent Morse fly ball bounced over the fence for a ground-rule double, lucky because Morse wouldn’t have made it to second base, Baker said. Morse is dealing with a sore quad muscle.
But it’s obvious the Mariners didn’t plan to overwork Morse and other veterans to turn around the franchise.
“Let’s face it, when they brought in a bunch of veterans to help this team, it was under the assumption that this young core we’ve seen trying to be built up for four-plus years was actually going to start to play like every-day major-leaguers, and it just hasn’t happened,” Baker said.
But it better start happening, or Zduriencik's time in Seattle will be up.
