Chris Henry in Trouble With The Law...Again

CINCINNATI -- Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry is in trouble again, accused by an 18-year-old man who told police that Henry hit him in the face and broke his car window with a beer bottle.

Henry, 24, was charged with misdemeanor assault and criminal damaging in the Monday incident in Cincinnati. A warrant for his arrest was issued Wednesday, and Henry surrendered, a police spokesman said.

Henry was being held in the Hamilton County jail pending a court appearance Thursday.

The player has had a string of problems with police. He most recently was in court last week after being ticketed for driving with expired Kentucky license plates. He paid $149, according to the Hamilton County Municipal Court records.

Henry, who was arrested four times during a 14-month span, was suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for the first half of last season for repeatedly violating the league's conduct policy.

What is this guy thinking? How the hell can you be a professional athlete and get arrested four times in a little over a year? Just go sit down somewhere until training camp Chris. This further proves my point that the Bengals are still the most pathetic franchise in sports. They had one good year and are falling apart at the seams like the "Bungles" of old. Chad Jackson is openly campaigning to get traded on the NFL network and ESPN almost daily. Grown men are attacking 18 year old teenagers, and the coach must be fed up with all this. I really feel bad for the fans of the Bengals, if there are any left that is.

When players on your own team dont seem to give a damn about the organization, how are the fans supposed to care? The Bengals are destined for mediocrity, and once Chad leaves, forget about any sort of national attention. It is these type of problems that separate the average from the great. Kevin Faulk gets busted for some blunts, who cares? The Bengals love getting arrested, which takes a players focus off of the game and off of his teammates. Keep getting locked up Bengals, you'll be wearing another orange outfit soon enough.
