Personal

Las Vegas scuffle

In March 2007, Joey Porter and Jones were involved in a brawl at a Las Vegas casino. Porter still had unresolved issues with Jones from their days in the AFC North between Porter's Pittsburgh Steelers and Jones' Cincinnati Bengals. On May 30, Porter pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor battery and was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine. Porter was docked 3 game paychecks for his actions. Later reports into the incident revealed that it was not just Porter, but also 6 of his friends including convicted felon Ross Earl who attacked Jones.
