Jones suspended one game
By: Associated Press,
Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones
has been suspended for the regular-season opener
against Baltimore for his role in an
altercation at a downtown hotel earlier this year.
Jones had pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge stemming from the
January incident, the latest in a history of off-the-field legal issues
for the NFL veteran. The NFL said Friday that the suspension was for
a violation of its personal conduct policy.
Police said Jones kicked and used head-butting as he was arrested for
allegedly assaulting a hotel employee. He was arrested outside the
hotel, and police video showed him protesting that he hadn't done anything
to deserve it, loudly demanding, "Let me go!" and at times
struggling with officers while yelling obscene insults. Video of Jones
in the back of a police cruiser at one point showed him telling an
officer: "I hope you die tomorrow."
Jones apologized in court for his behavior and specifically to Cincinnati
police Sgt. Jarrod Cotton. His attorneys said he had been receiving
treatment, including for anger management.
In exchange for Jones' plea, Municipal Court Judge Dwane Mallory dismissed
misdemeanor counts of assault and disorderly conduct at the prosecutor's
request. He sentenced Jones to time already served — two days — on
the obstructing official business count. The Hamilton County prosecutor
had earlier dismissed a felony count alleging Jones spit on a jail
Jones can appeal the suspension within three days. Otherwise, he will
be eligible to return to the active roster on Sept. 11 following the
opener against the Ravens. Jones may participate in all preseason practices

400 returns for its 24th consecutive year.
However, there will probably be as many race fans in attendance this
year NASCAR race as last year.
“Attendance-wise, we’re going to be pretty flat with where
we were in 2016, the one thing that’s really going to tell for
us is the walk-up, and when you have a forecast that it’s going
to be really, really hot, sometimes that can impact it,” says
IMS President Doug Boles in an interview with Inside Indiana Business.
But Boles he says
the new “400 Fest at the Brickyard” concerts
should bring more people to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend
as part of a “destination event.”
page from the Indy 500 and the Snakepit and how do we create some
music with some really big artists give people a reason
to come to the Speedway that’s beyond just the racing. In fact,
we’re going to have people that will come here on Friday and
Saturday night that could care less about the racing and we’ll
have some people that are coming for both,” says Boles.
Boles also believes that moving the race next year from July to early
September will be better for those coming for the race and 400 Fest
as part of an end-of-summer celebration to bookend the Indy 500 and
its corresponding concerts as a start-of-summer event during Memorial
