A judge has ordered Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones remain in custody pending a blood test following his latest brush with the law.

Police arrested Jones Tuesday morning for allegedly poking a security guard in the eye, head-butting an officer and spitting on a nurse’s hand.

Officials said during the arrest; the 33-year-old Jones had become combative in a such a manner that officers had to place him in a restraint chair, Cincinati.com reported.

Jones’ attorney vehemently denied the allegations against client during his initial court appearance before a Hamilton County judge.

However, the judge ordered Adam “Pacman” Jones held on $37,500 bail and directed the troubled NFL star submit to a blood test.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s spokesman Mike Robinson said Jones would remain jailed until the blood test can be performed Wednesday morning.

Robinson said when the nurse tried to examine Jones, which is part of the arrest procedure, he “proceeded to spit on her.”

“Medical staff cannot perform the ordered test as instructed by the judge until tomorrow morning so that Mr.Jones will remain in our custody until that time,” Robison said.

According to prosecutors, police responded to the Millennium Hotel Monday night in Cincinnati after Jones poked a hotel security guard in the eye.

Jones was allegedly “beating on different hotel room doors” when he was confronted by security.

When cops arrived at the scene, Jones continued to struggle with police, kicking, headbutting and refusing to comply with officers’ demands to get into the patrol car following his arrest on charges of obstructing official business, disorderly conduct, and misdemeanor assault.

Jones now faces an additional felony count of harassment with a bodily substance stemming from the spitting incident.

The cornerback, who had a rash of prior run-ins with the law, signed a three-year-contract before the start of this past season.

Cincinnati Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the football club was aware of the incident but couldn’t comment pending resolution of the legal matter.
