A Bengal Treasure.....Chris Henry


For the fourth time in 7 months, Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry has found himself afoul of the law.

-Chris Henry avoided jail time on marijuana charges from a December arrest in Kentucky after pleading guilty and agreeing to enter a drug rehabilitation program.

-Henry was charged in January with pulling a pistol on a group of revelers in downtown Orlando. He pleaded not guilty to a charge of carrying a concealed weapon and is set for trial Aug. 21.

-Henry was pulled over for speeding and driving drunk just last week.  Henry registered a blood-alcohol content of 0.092 on a breath test and was clocked at 82 miles per hour in a 65-mph zone. The legal limit is 0.08.

-Henry turned himself in late Wednesday afternoon on three counts of an unlawful transaction with a minor. Henry was released after posting a $2,500 bond.  The arrest warrant issued on Wednesday morning claims that Henry provided alcohol to three women all under the age of 21.  One of the women is identified as Monica Beamon [an 18 yr old who started this mess by filing a false police report claiming that Henry raped her] and the others are cited as unnamed 15 and 16-yr olds. The criminal affidavit charges that all three women were in Henry's car when he provided them alcohol, with the knowledge that all were under the legal drinking age of 21.

The Bengals declined comment.

It is such a shame that Henry has to be such a pain in the ass.  You know the saying 3 strikes and you are out, but he has such talent.  And, if anyone can help these troubled young players it is Marvin Lewis.  Look what he did with Chad Johnson.  

I really enjoy reading your blog.  It is extremely entertaining.  I am adding you to my blogroll.  And, I would really appreciate it if you would add me to yours.
