Jones was booked into the Clark County Detention Center early Friday and released about an hour later, a jail operator said. The Tennessean reported Jones posted $10,000 bond for each charge of felony coercion.
Las Vegas police Capt. James Dillon said authorities gave Jones, Sadia Morrison and Robert Reid until midday Friday to turn themselves in or face arrest for the melee at the Minxx strip club during the NBA All-Star Game weekend in February.
Police have described Reid as Jones' bodyguard, and Morrison as a member of an entourage of about six people who arrived with Jones before the pre-dawn Feb. 19 fracas at the club, several blocks off the Las Vegas Strip.
The charges in Las Vegas have cast more doubt on Jones' playing status with the Tennessee Titans. Since he was drafted in April 2005, he has been arrested six times - although he has not been convicted of any crimes.
Jones has been involved in at least 11 separate police investigations, authorities say, and is currently sought by Atlanta-area police for questioning in a shooting early Monday after a fight at a strip club there.
