Cellphone video footage shows that Jones and Ragin traded several punches with each other. Jones ultimately knocked Ragin down to the ground with a punch to the face then hit the employee one more time before a man broke up the fight.

Daugherty says that at some point during the fight, Ragin ended up hitting a woman who was with Jones, injuring her hand. He says Ragin was the aggressor and Jones defended himself.

Jones and his friend declined medical treatment.

Ragin was arrested on two counts of battery and taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries.

Jones, a one-time Pro Bowler, spent eight seasons with the Bengals. He's also played for the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys.

Even though police determined Jones wasn't at fault, the NFL veteran has had other off-the-field issues. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charge after his confrontation last year with hotel security personnel and an obscenity-filled tirade against arresting police officers.

Police said Jones kicked and used head-butting as he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a hotel employee. The NFL suspended Jones for one game for a violation of its personal conduct policy.
