Cincinnati Bengals' Adam "Pacman" Jones was arrested Monday for reportedly slapping a woman. The NFL star claims he did it in self defense.

"Just got arrested for protecting myself, I will not let this break me or change what I have work so hard for ...." wrote in a Tweet.

According to Jones's agent Peter Schaffer, the arrest had been "a travesty of injustice." He said two intoxicated women approached Jones at a bar and that "he hit a woman in the face after he thought she might have thrown a beer bottle at his head.”

Schaffer said he had spoken to witnesses who have confirmed the NFL player's story. He added that he's looking into getting a copy of the bar's security footage.
