Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was arrested and jailed on one count of assault Monday.
Police alleged he "knowingly attempted to cause physical harm" to a woman in Cincinnati last week. A police complaint says Jones allegedly struck a 34-year-old Cincinnati woman shortly before midnight on June 5.
The police report listed the injury as apparently minor.
A message from The Associated Press was left for Jones' agent.
Court documents show Jones was released on his own recognizance with his arraignment on the misdemeanour charge scheduled for Tuesday.
