Jones Gets An Apology From Cincy PD

Our Head Editor (and for those of you who don’t know, notorious Steelers fan) Matt Leode made it a point to post the article earlier this week about Adam Jones’ arrest after Sunday’s game.   Now I shall make it a point to post, with a nod to Paul Harvey, the rest of the story.

As it turns out, Jones has been vindicated.  Today the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Cincinnati Police Chief Tom  Streicher has made an official and public apology to Jones for his arrest and the resulting treatment he received.  An, “unfortunate mistake” was how he put it.

Apparently, Cincy’s finest acted more  like Keystone Kops in their handling of a minor traffic incident.  There was no outstanding warrant on the plates (as previously reported) and Jones was completely exonerated.

Its been speculated for quite some time now that both Cincinnati and Kentucky police have been excessive in their treatment of Bengal players. 

Jones missed almost two full seasons due to past offenses, and has been working hard to rebuild his life and career.  Mike Brown gave him the opportunity with a two-year deal back in the spring. 

Despite this hiccup, it looks like Adam (not Pacman) Jones is working hard to admit his mistakes and make good on his promise.

I’m glad to see Streicher is trying to do the same.
