    Another Bengal arrested!

    Hall charged with drunken driving

    Associated Press

    BATAVIA, Ohio -- An Ohio State Highway Patrol spokesman says Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Leon Hall was arrested in southwest Ohio and charged with drunken driving.
    Patrol spokesman Lt. Tony Bradshaw says a state trooper stopped Hall just after 3 a.m. Sunday in Clermont County, west of Cincinnati.

    Bradshaw says the 24-year-old Hall was polite and cooperative, acknowledged he had been drinking and took a breath test that showed a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.149. The legal limit in Ohio is 0.08.

    Hall is the first Bengals player to face criminal charges in nearly a year. He's scheduled to be arraigned in Clermont County Municipal Court on Friday.

    Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan referred to the team's "standard policy that we refrain from commenting on legal matters that are unresolved."

    And he's the one we drafted because of his outstanding character. Go figure.

    I surely suspect it won't be the last before the season starts.

    "First Bengals player to face criminal charges in nearly a year?"

    Are we supposed to be impressed by this?

    What do you expect with a nickname like "Tank"?

    - "I got tanked last night"
    - "Throw him in the drunk tank"
    - "My career tanked in Chicago"

    He's absolutely set up for failure, IMO.

    I'm really surprised it was Hall, and disappointed. I thought he was one of the good guys. Hopefully this is a one time error in judgement and doesn't happen again.

    Pittsburgh and Cleveland have definitely had their fair share of players in the police blotter in that time. This wouldn't be as big a deal if the Bengals had never had two high profile repeat offenders in Odell Thurman and Chris Henry, who alone account for a significant portion of legal problems involving Bengals' players.

    Patrol spokesman Lt. Tony Bradshaw is clearly a geography major, or whoever wrote this fine piece has a stellar editor...

    Did I hear Lapham say that Hall had no intention of driving, but his wife was in labor and he had to take her to the hospital, or meet her there? I only caught a bit of it around 5:40 on WLW.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
