The Bengals have issued a statement in the aftermath of the release of a cruiser-cam video that shows professional lowlife Adam Jones screaming at an arresting officer, shouting expletives, and yelling at the officer that he hopes the officer dies.
One of Jones' lawyers released a statement earlier tonight that claims that his client has "the utmost respect for law enforcement."
Wow. I mean, can you imagine what Adam would've said to the officer if he didn't have the utmost respect for law enforcement???

"We are extremely disappointed with Adam’s behavior. The behavior in the video is not what we expect from our players. The Club is aware that Adam has put forth his own apology, however, we also offer an apology to the public and to our loyal fans."
I wouldn't have expected the Bengals to say that much, although I do hope that soon, they finally decide to part ways with Adam Jones. But wouldn't you think that any public statement or apology by the team would include a mention of, if not an apology toward, you know, the Cincinnati Police Department or at least the guy Adam demonstrated "utmost respect" toward?
