    Odell Thurman - Jackass2 (Not a Movie)

    Got a DUI last night after (per WLW) the Bengals returned from Pittsburgh. And guess who was a passenger in the car? Yep... Chris Henry.

    Way to go, Odell. Perhaps you will try to tell us that you just forgot to blow in the breathalizer and were really innocent (like you forgot to take your pee test and are not a drug-user).

    Odell... grow up. And quit hangin' with Chris Henry.

    Odell Thurman is facing charges for driving under the influence
    By 700 WLW News

    The message from Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis after Sundays' win over Pittsburgh to his players was "stay classy" in victory. That message never got to suspended linebacker Odell Thurman who has been arrested for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Thurman was driving another players car when he was stopped early Monday morning in the East End. Reports say other players were in the SUV with Thurman including wide receiver Chris Henry but he is not facing any charges at this time.

    Yea, this was wonderful news to wake up to. Went to read the story on the game and see this. Thurman may have just bought at least four more games. I'll be surprised if he ever sees the field this year.

    Some things never change. Really a disappointing situation. I too would be surprized to see Odell back this year. Cant figure this looks too good for Henry and the new comish either.

    Here is an article from the Enquirer on the arrest.

    http://news.enquirer.com/apps/pbcs.d...WS01/309250010

    Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman was arrested at 3:05 a.m. today and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

    Thurman was arrested in the 3800 block of Kellogg Avenue in the East End. He was brought to a checkpoint operated by the Cincinnati Police and Ohio State Patrol and submitted to a breath test.

    Thurman registered a .17, which is considered a high-tier reading, said Officer Stephen Lawson of the Cincinnati Police Traffic Section.


    Under Ohio law, a person is presumed intoxicated at .08 percent blood alcohol content.

    Thurman was released to a sober driver, Lawson said.

    Thurman was one of several Bengals players in Thurman’s 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe.

    The identification of other Bengals players riding in the vehicle was not immediately available, Lawson said.

    Thurman, 23, was the only occupant charged with DUI, the officer said.

    Thurman is currently serving a four-game suspension for a second violation of the NFL substance abuse policy, stemming from a failed test, which was believed to be a missed test.

    He is eligible to come off the suspended list and return to practice Oct. 2, one week from today.

    The Bengals played their third game Sunday, a 28-20 victory at Pittsburgh, to improve to 3-0.

    Thurman, under terms of his suspension, is not allowed to be in the stadium on game day. The team flew home on a charter flight immediately after the game, and Thurman was believed to have hooked up with some teammates to celebrate the victory.

    The Bengals’ standing policy is to not comment on players’ legal issues until they are resolved in the court system.

    If convicted, Thurman would be subject to additional NFL discipline, including a fine or longer suspension.

    .17 blood alcohol is seriously buzzed.

    It's not just a hair over the line "shouldn't have had that extra beer" drunk. It's falling down, staggering, passing out, shouldn't be anywhere close to the steering wheel drunk.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    And the hits keep coming as Peter King reports in today's "Monday Morning Quarterback" column in Sports Illustrated that this past Wednesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell addressed the Bengals on the subject of (drumroll please), "the responsbility of NFL players to be good citizens."

    Stay hot, Odell.

    Not that I'm a Bengals fan but they aren't the only team that needs to be lectured about that. One thing to take into account is the stuff we don't hear about because it is taken care of behind the scenes or a cop doesn't want a big time player to get into trouble.

    That's interesting, Cyclone. Chris Henry seems to live a charmed life. He gets in trouble at West Virginia and still manages to make it in the NFL. He gets into some kind of incident where he almost gets his head blown off by a cop and he pretty much skates. No suspension or anything. Perhaps the terms of his probation are that he cannot drink in the state of Florida. Or if they do revoke his probation and he ges to jail, it will be after the season.

    As long as he can get open, catch the ball and score TDs. Those are the important things, I guess!??! Lets hope it doesn't end up costing him or someone else their life.

    Not if Paul Brown were the coach. I'm just finishing up reading a book on him. He had zero tolerance for any type pf misbehavior. Any player, regardless of who they were, was gone after the first incident that brought embarassment to the team/organization. Released the captain of his team once for drinking and back talking a police officer. The next day, Paul confronted him and asked him if it were true, and he said yes. Paul told him to clean out his locker.

    But the point was - Paul wanted the other players on the team to see it and get the "message". Especially when it involved the CAPTAIN of their team. He ruled and ran a taut ship, and didn't have troubles overall.

    The game has changed. Which is why a guy like Paul Brown wouldn't make it today. The NFL Players Union would be all over him.

    I like Marvin Lewis; but he seems to put team discipline down on the list. But then, alot of today's NFL coaches do too. Players make too much money, and it's too risky to discipline/bench players you rely on weekly to win.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Marvin Lewis had his weekly press conference today and basically said Odell does not understand what a priviledge it is to play in the NFL and expects him to be dealt with severely by the organization and the league. He basically said he expects he will be suspended for the year. I have a feeling we will not see him back with the Bengals.

    Re: Odell Thurman - Jackass2 (Not a Movie)

    Lewis expects Thurman gone for year

    By GEOFF HOBSON
    September 25, 2006

    Expressing disappointment at the club's off-field issues, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Monday he expects Odell Thurman to be suspended by the NFL for the rest of the season.

    Thurman, already under a four-game suspension for drug problems, was arrested early Monday for driving while impaired.

    Lewis wasted no time taking away Thurman's locker, and replacing him with guard Kyle Takavitz.

    Lewis also said that center Rich Braham (knee) will be out some games beyond the Oct. 8 bye, and that safety Dexter Jackson (ankle) has a chance to return to play against his old mates in Tampa Bay Oct. 15. Also out for the Patriots game this Sunday is wide receiver Tab Perry (hip), but Lewis hopes to have a better handle on his situation after the bye.

    Lewis also had encouraging news on running back Chris Perry (ankle), eligible to return to practice after the Tampa game. Lewis said it looks like Perry won't need to be shelved long before he gets into a game.

    "It's disappointing for me, it's disappointing for our program, all of our fans," Lewis said of Thurman. "He just obviously doesn't understand the privilege and the right to play in the National Football League. He will be dealt with very severely."

    According to Fox 19, Thurman, 23, failed a breathalyzer at a checkpoint on Kellogg Avenue in Cincinnati and had a "high-tier" reading that is described as at least .17, or twice the legal limit..

    Since Thurman is currently under a four-game suspension, he is in stage two of the substance abuse program, according to the league's policy. It's not known what the requirements of his treatment program are but any violation moves him to stage three and eligible for a one-year suspension that Lewis referenced.

    But since there has been only an arrest and not a decision by a court, any resolution may have to wait. But Lewis made it clear he's moving on beyond Thurman. At least for this season

    "No," when asked if he had talked to Thurman or planned to talk to him.

    That Odell Thurman jersey doesn't seem like a real solid purchase right now.

    Re: Odell Thurman - Jackass2 (Not a Movie)

    This, from Rotoworld:

    Chris Henry was in Odell Thurman's car when the linebacker got a DUI, and threw up out the window of the vehicle.

    Another classy moment in Henry's career. Thurman, whose locker has already been taken down with the Bengals, said he was only driving because Henry and Reggie McNeal, the car's owner, had more to drink than him.
