Per the local TV news, he was initially stopped for a traffic violation around 2 AM, though the website article below from the same TV channel I watched says midnight; the cop(s) smelled the pot, searched the car, and eventually found it in his shoe so it couldn't have been too much, but I guess that doesn't matter.
They interviewed his Mom and the Bengals issued a statement that couldn't issue a statement while the matter was under litigation. It is not yet known if he'll play on Sunday.
Bengal Faces Drug Charge
LAST UPDATE: 12/15/2005 11:19:38 PM
Bengal's receiver Chris Henry was picked up for allegedly having marijuana in his possesion.
Covington officers arrested him around midnight Thursday. Henry posted $144 bond for his release.
His mother tells Local 12 that the family will stand behind Henry during this difficult time. "I think we're going to deal with this in a positive way, not a negative way. We gonna come together as one, like Katrina brought us together as one. This is gonna bring us together even closer." said Carolyn Henry Thursday night.
Sources tell us Henry did practice with the Bengal's Thursday.
A Bengal's spokesman says the team will not comment until the matter is resolved in court. He is expected face a judge Friday morning for arraignment.
The rookie receiver has 30 catches, 395-yards, and five touchdowns putting him third on the team.
Coach Marvin Lewis is always very tight lipped when it comes to injuries and discipline. That means there's a good chance we won't know whether Chris Henry gets to play Sunday, until the team takes the field against the Detroit Lions.
Kick off is 4:00pm on Local 12.
