Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam 'Pacman' Jones has been arrested on a felony charge and multiple misdemeanor counts following an overnight altercation.

Jones, 33, was taken into custody at around 12.30pm in Cincinnati's downtown entertainment district after he allegedly yelled profanities at a security guard at the Millennium Hotel, pushed the man and poked him in the eye.

Court documents state that when police officers responded to the scene in the 100 block of West Eighth Street, the 180-pound, 5-foot-10 football player refused to stop the attack.

When Jones was ordered to get inside a police cruiser, he allegedly pulled away and then proceeded to kick and head-butt an officer.

While Jones was being processed at the Hamilton County Justice Center, the complaint, obtained by the Cincinnati Enquirer, alleges that he spat on a nurse's hand, resulting in a felony charge of harassment with a bodily substance.

The 33-year-old is also facing misdemeanors counts of assault, disorderly conduct and obstructing official business.

A judge ordered Jones held on $37,500 bond. He is due back in court on January 13, reported the station Fox19. 

The judge ordered Jones to submit to a blood test and the sheriff's office said that would be done Wednesday morning, which means the player will spend the night in jail.

Sheriff Jim Neil described Jones as 'disorderly and combative' throughout his booking.

Public defender Lauren Stale representing Jones in his initial court appearance said that he 'vehemently denies' allegations against him and will hire an attorney to challenge the charges.
