According to the police report, officers saw Jones arguing loudly with a woman outside a nightclub where a rap concert had been held.
Jones, 22, was described by police as slurring his speech, having bloodshot eyes and smelling strongly of alcohol.
The arrest came at 1:34 a.m. CDT, the day after the Titans broke training camp.
Jones had already been excused from Friday's team schedule for personal reasons, according to The Tennessean.
Jones was arguing with a woman he accused of stealing his wallet inside the club and passing it to one of her friends, according to police.
Officers said they ordered Jones to leave several times, but he refused and continued to shout profanities. more
"So...about the Hall of Fame..."
The 39-year-old Belle pleaded guilty in July to one felony stalking count. He had initially been arrested and charged in February, then rearrested May 17 at his Scottsdale home after he again contacted the victim. He has been jailed since the second arrest, and received credit for time served only since he entered his plea.
Superior Court Judge James Keppel warned Belle that if he contacts the victim again he will go to prison.
Belle's former girlfriend told police in January that she discovered a Global Positioning System tracking device that had fallen off her car and that Belle had threatened her. more
"J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets!"
Barlow, the running back the Jets picked up in a trade with the 49ers over the weekend, compared San Francisco coach Mike Nolan to Adolf Hitler in an interview that appeared in the Contra Costa Times yesterday. The interview was conducted on Tuesday, when Barlow was given permission by Eric Mangini to catch up on his sleep instead of attending practice.
Here's what Barlow said about Nolan, who is heading into his second season as coach of the 49ers:
"Nolan just doesn't know what he's doing. He's a first-time head coach with too much power. He has too much power as a first-time head coach. He walks around with a chip on his shoulder, like he's a dictator, like he's Hitler. People are scared of him. If it ain't Nolan's way, it's the highway."
In a follow-up call later, Barlow tried to retract his comments, saying: "I was kind of harsh on him, saying he's a dictator. That's bad. Saddam Hussein is a dictator. I was speaking on emotion....My world's been (upended) in the past (48) hours." moreThe rest of the stories . . .

Barfield injured after son shoves him down stairs
HOUSTON (AP) -- Former All-Star outfielder Jesse Barfield was taken to a hospital Sunday after he suffered a head injury when he was shoved down a flight of stairs by his 18-year-old son, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Barfield, 46, was treated and released, but Jeremy Barfield was arrested shortly after 8 a.m., the newspaper reported.
The younger Barfield, a high school star outfielder drafted in the ninth round by the New York Mets in June, was expected to be charged with a misdemeanor, said Lt. John Martin, a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff's Department.
"(Jeremy) and his father had some kind of argument that apparently took place on the stairs in his house," Martin told the Chronicle. "The father was lower on stairs than Jeremy was and ... at some point during argument, Jeremy shoved him and he ended up falling down the stairs and struck his head pretty hard on the floor." more
"Peerless Price has been found."
Coach Dick Jauron was unavailable for comment following the light workout, but will address the situation on Monday.
Bills spokesperson Scott Berchtold said that Price was "absent."
Price, Buffalo's second-round pick in the 1999 draft, signed with the Bills as a free agent in April after spending three disappointing seasons with Atlanta and Dallas. He has been battling Josh Reed most of training camp for Buffalo's No. 2 receiver position behind Lee Evans.
Price was hoping to resurrect his career with the Bills, the team he enjoyed his most success with. However, he has not had a reception in Buffalo's two preseason defeats, including Friday's 44-31 loss to Cincinnati. more
"I'd be perfect for the Brewers," says Wally, er...Barney.
Backman received a warm welcome as he joined most of his teammates from the 1986 Mets on the field at Shea Stadium for an anniversary celebration before Saturday night's game against the Rockies. He made his way through the stands along the third-base line, giving high-fives as fans cheered despite a steady rain.
Darryl Strawberry, Lenny Dykstra, Mookie Wilson and Howard Johnson got the loudest applause as they made their way through the crowd, which chanted "Lenny! Lenny!" for Dykstra and thundered "Mookie!" when Wilson was introduced.
While many of his former teammates still work in baseball, Backman is trying to get back on the field after an embarrassing episode in 2004. Arizona hired him as manager in November 2004 then dismissed him four days later because of evidence that arose from off-the-field problems, including two arrests and several financial problems.
Time has done nothing to change how the fiery Backman feels about what happened, saying Arizona handled the situation extremely poorly. more
