CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is scheduled to go on trial Monday on an assault charge after police say he hit a woman at a nightclub.

Jones pleaded not guilty and was released on his own recognizance after his June arrest. He and his attorney have declined to comment.

Jones is accused of hitting a 34-year-old woman at a downtown Cincinnati nightclub. A police report listed the injury as apparently minor.

Jones could be punished by the National Football League under its conduct policy.

He has been in trouble previously. He pleaded guilty in January 2012 to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct in another case. He had been accused of shouting profanities and trying to pull away as police arrested him at a Cincinnati bar months earlier.
