Clearly he's an addict. He's an alcoholic or hooked on drugs or maybe both. Clearly something is wrong with Matt Jones, when all he has to do to avoid jail is to not drink, and he is in jail anyway because he drank.
But I don't feel bad for Matt Jones. There are too many people with too many problems for me to waste a shred of sympathy on a millionaire athlete who simply cannot stop pouring beer down his throat.
His attorney say Jones had a few beers during a round of golf, which is possible. It's also possible the dog ate your homework. Possible. But I doubt it.
And even if Jones is guilty of nothing more than drinking a few beers during a round of golf, he's an idiot. Who drinks beer during a round of golf if that beer can lead to prison?
Only an idiot does that. Or an addict. Matt Jones is definitely one of those nouns, and possibly both. And I feel sorry for him exactly none.
