Pleads NOT GUILTY

0611-pacman-jones-gettyCincinnati Bengals star Pacman Jones just pleaded NOT GUILTY to assault ... after allegedly socking a woman in the face outside of a Cincinnati nightclub last week.

Jones insists he was "protecting himself" during the June 5 incident ... after a woman appeared to pour a drink on the 29-year-old cornerback outside of a Cincinnati nightclub.

Just yesterday, surveillance video of the incident surfaced ... appearing to show the woman lunging toward Jones with a drink in her hand. The person believed to be Jones reacts by clocking her in the face ... hard.

The woman pressed assault charges ... police characterized her injuries as minor ... and just yesterday, Pac turned himself in to police. 

Now, with Jones entering a not guilty plea ... it's clear he's digging in for a legal war.

While there is normally no excuse to hit a woman, that tape makes it clear that she threw a drink in his face first and his reaction was so fast that I could see it being a nearly involuntary defensive reflex reaction. Had he continued to go after her it would be a different story.

Ladies, if you want to act like a man, there are men who will treat you like one.

Wish there was audio so we can hear what the moron said to the woman. Whatever was said really seemed to anger her.
.
As far as Jones saying he was protecting himself . . . there was a four foot fence between them, was he expecting a standing high jump form the woman? This is just another example of a thug with no emotional stability lashing out at someone weaker than he is.
.
I have a feeling that this will not bode well for him staying with the Bengals. Quite simply, he is not worth the trouble he brings to any team. He has already been tossed out of the league for a while for being an ass.

i am so sure you are doing this to bait us, but the very idea of describing that as LUNGING is ridiculous. he was the aggressor, and it's actually irresponsible to spread the falsities of her being 'an aggressor' just so that you can get more clicks/comments. i'm afraid pretty soon i'll have to ditch this site as i did with perez a few years back... guess i should be working anyway, not wasting time on you guys' morally corrupt and irresponsible depiction of society and harassment of celebrities.

BTW, what kind of injuries do the police consider "minor injuries"?
.
Black eye? Broken nose? Knocked out teeth?

He should be glad he is not going before the same judge as Chad Johnson. She would be happy to jail him till his next court date.

you dont need to hit her like that there are other options its sad his instinct was to punch her like she a guy. A bit of water aint gonna hurt him so his reaction was OTT. plus we dont know what he said to provoke her either.
