    Bengal Chris Henry arrested

    Bengals rookie Chris Henry has been arrested for marijuana possession.

    http://www.wcpo.com/news/2005/local/12/15/henry.html

    Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry was arrested for marijuana possession early Thursday morning.

    Police arrested Henry, 22, in the 300 block of Philadelphia Street in Covington.

    He posted at least 10 percent of a $1,000 bond and was released from jail.

    Henry is a Bengals rookie from West Virginia University.

    It's unclear how the drug arrest will affect Henry's season.

    I knew this was the downside to the Henry pick.

    He has all the potential to be a great receiver and complement to this offense, and he has to go out and do something dumb.

    Re: Bengal Chris Henry arrested

    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.

    Besides the fact that you are driving impaired and can hurt someone, this right here is a good reason not to smoke pot in your car. Once the police smell it, they can search you and your car for it.

    He's a professional athlete, fans will look past it and say "well it's not like he killed anyone" and he'll get off with a tap on the wrist.

    This guy could have been re-named Milo coming out of college.

    I sense that people are over-reacting and over-condemning.

    That's what every other citizen gets for a 1st marijuana possession charge.

    If anything, the repercussions from a charge such as this will be more detrimental and harmful to a rookie like Chris Henry playing in a football town as uber-conservative as Cincinnati.

    He screwed up, there's no denying that. He stands to miss, what, 1/4 of a season? How many hundreds of thousands of dollars will that end up equating to?

    Hopefully this will be a wake-up call for him; he shouldn't be overly-vilified for this relatively harmless--albeit incredibly boneheaded--lapse in judgment.

    The thing with Henry is that he was a problem waiting to happen. He was problem in college, and so on. I think the reason people are coming down hard on him, is this is no suprise.

    Was he ever in trouble off the field? I know he had some on-field behavior problems.

    He has a history that is less than stellar. I just don't want to see a pot possession charge combined with a history of behavior-problems in college turn into some sort of insurmountable hurdle for this kid (22 y/o) to be forced to try and overcome for the rest of his career. That would be wrong.

    He won't miss four games. That's only for second time drug offenders in the NFL's drug abuse program.
