11:48 AM PT -- Jones just explained his side of the story ... saying the whole incident began because the bouncer was the aggressor in the situation.
Jones, who broke it all down on "The Pat McAfee Show" on Monday just hours after he was released from jail, explained he was at the bar requesting songs from the DJ, when he turned around and saw the bouncer fighting his little brother.
Jones says the fracas was insane -- claiming the bouncer and others were throwing chairs and punches behind him.
Jones says he jumped into the action to try to separate the bouncer and his brother ... and admitted to getting physical with the man -- explaining, "I did what I needed to do."
Jones added he was NOT drunk ... and was confident that when video from inside the bar comes out, it'll back his side of the story.
8:29 AM PT -- According to police documents, obtained by TMZ Sports, Jones is accused of knocking out a bouncer at a Cincinnati, Ohio bar.
In the docs, cops say at 1:08 AM at Clutch OTR ... Jones "punched and kicked" an employee at the establishment, "causing the bouncer to lose consciousness."
In his mug shot, you can see the former NFL star wasn't exactly pleased to be arrested.
More legal trouble for Adam "Pacman" Jones ... the ex-NFL star was arrested again Monday morning after he allegedly beat a person unconscious.
Jail records show Jones was booked at 1:54 AM ET in Hamilton County, Ohio ... with court records revealing the 37-year-old was formally charged with one count of misdemeanor assault.
Details surrounding the incident are unclear ... we're working on it -- but according to court docs obtained by WCPO, Jones is accused of punching and kicking somebody in the head until they were knocked out.
Jones is due in court to face a judge later Monday.
Jones is no stranger to a jail cell, he's been arrested multiple times the past few years ... including once back in 2019 when he snapped after he was accused of cheating at an Indiana casino.
Officials in court docs said Jones threatened cops, and even told one of them to "suck my d***."
Jones eventually cut a deal with prosecutors in the case ... agreeing to plead guilty to one count of felony cheating at gambling and one count of misdemeanor resisting law enforcement. He was sentenced to 10 days in jail.
And, don't forget Pacman's infamous airport fight -- when he knocked a dude out inside a terminal. Jones was NOT accused of wrongdoing in that incident, but he definitely put his fighting skills on display.
Jones had a great NFL career after being selected in the 1st round of the 2005 NFL Draft ... logging one Pro Bowl selection and one All-Pro honor before retiring in 2019.
