It's important to point out that no files were charged and no arrests were made. Also remember that Goodell did not discipline Marshawn Lynch for his hit & run earlier this year, in which charges were filed and a guilty plea was entered.
That being said, it doesn't look good for Jones, who can't (and never will?) get a clue.
The article is extremely vague (or perhaps contradictory) about what happened. On the one hand it says that Jones and his bodyguard damaged a bathroom. On the other hand it says they were merely in a verbal argument.
I suppose the former could be caused by the latter, but a damaged bathroom plus the (possibly misleading) headline that Jones was in a FIGHT~! makes me think it had to be more than a verbal argument.
Then again, maybe the reason why the police didn't do anything was because it was merely a verbal argument, and someone from the hotel possibly overreacted by calling the police in the first place. If that's all it was, I expect this to turn into a non-story. Even if you're Adam Jones, nobody can expect you to go the rest of your life without so much as ARGUING with someone.
