Troubled Bengals player Chris Henry is in trouble again.

The wide receiver is charged with assault and criminal damaging out of Hamilton County.

According to the police report, Henry was involved in a fight on Ohio Avenue in Clifton Heights Monday.

An 18-year-old man claims Henry threw a bottle shattering his car window and punched him in the face.

Chris Henry has reportedly told police this is a case of mistaken identity.

After convictions including a gun charge, the NFL suspended Henry and placed him on a zero tolerance policy.

We have not yet heard from the Bengals or the league.

Now how about everyone trying to sell me on the Bengals being fine if Chad leaves because TJ and Henry can step up:rolleyes: Henry can hardly be counted on, his days are getting numbered with them as well as I really cant see them re-signing him, and TJ would soon be the only option to throw to and finally having coverages roll towards him instead of Chad, and that entire offense would suffer including TJ.

Well, given some of the ridiculous false claims that have been made about Henry at this point I won't take this as fact.

However, it wouldn't surprise me at all and if it's indeed true he deserves whatever he gets in terms of punishment... I won't complain.

It has to be for a season. Wasn't he suspended for 8 games? Goodell isn't going to give him a smaller one for not learning his lesson and I doubt he gives him the same one again.

The Bengals need to groom a guy behind Chad Johnson and TJ Houshmandzadeh ... and this guy isn't it. He can't be trusted as a starter.

As a bengals fan I pretty much agree with everything said here. When I sit down for 14 sundays a year to watch a team I really really like, I'd rather not think about them funding money into an asshole like this so he can show up at the end of the season when we've already lost our chances for the play offs.

You know what the worst part about this? If this kid stayed out of trouble he could be better than both TJ and Chad combined. He's so talented its not even funny, but he'll never ever get a shot in this league because of his actions off the field.

I hope Cincinnati has a WR they like in the 08' draft so we can prepare for Chad to go in 2011, and replace Henry for good.

henry flipped off the crowed at rugters and was suspended for the final game of the season

thats the extent of the trouble they got in here

At this point the bengals are just screwed any way they turn. Henry is very talented but at this point, does it really matter? The fact that chad johnson is a huge d-bag doesn't make this any better.

If I were a bengals fan I would be pulling my hair out. You hire a defensive minded genius in lewis and your defense is worse then when he got there. I just don't understand Chad Johnson, really dude, youre probably the most talented WR in the league and you have a stable QB that is a stud, why ***** and moan? Sure your team is bad and has made horriable draft choices, but with one good off-season you could be right back in the mix.

It just frustrates me and I'm not even a fan.

TitleTown088

Well he officially isn't a bengal anymore... Bengals waived WR Chris Henry.
"Chris Henry has forfeited his opportunity to pursue a career with the Bengals," said president Mike Brown. "His conduct can no longer be tolerated." Henry, charged with assault earlier this week, was probably given too many chances. It would be no surprise if commissioner Roger Goodell banishes him from the league. At the minimum, he figures to receive a one-year suspension. Apr. 3 - 11:32 am et

A move long overdue. Pretty easy for the Bengals to act tough now, when Henry will probably be suspended for a year in the wake of his most recent arrest.

To be honest, I think Henry hurt the Bengals more than helped them since they drafted him. They could have used that roster spot on a receiver worth hanging onto and developing, like they finally will now.

Better than Chad Johnson... even if he was a model citizen he would never be as good as CJ, TJ maybe but he was a great slot WR

I disagree. Henry had a lot of potential. It's not like chad johnson is some immortal god a la jerry rice.

Well we didn't pick any up in FA yet, and we're short 2 recievers right now (We lost tab perry through free agency to miami) so I hope we draft a receiver.

Thats a little much, saying he "Easily" could of been better then CJ, I mean you can say that about anyone if it never happens and say he could of been...He's a long long way from even being close to what Chad has done the past 8 seasons, Henry is used to playing out of the slot and running alot of fade routes, I havent even got a good look at him on the outside facing top corners running a variety of routes, let alone doing it with double coverages, so its understandable with your hate for Chad but just because a wr has some potential to be good you just cant say "I think he could easily be better then chad", he has done or shown nothing to prove otherwise.

If you watch cincinnati enough, you've seen Chris Henry fill roles for both TJ and Chad, and he's 100% capable.

I'm obviously a little bit biased, but I think anybody with 2 hands could thrive with carson - he's a great QB. But Henry really is pretty talented.

No one in this thread is saying Henry is straight up better than Chad btw. But if you're a bengals fan you've seen him play on a higher level than a 3rd string receiver normally plays on, and its evident that he has the capability to be great (at least in the bengals offense).

So he's 100% capable of putting up over 1100 yds and 8 tds for 8 seasons in a row while being the main focus of the defense? Thats optimistic thinking, im glad you figured that out from watching how limited he even got to play...Im not saying he's not talented because he is, but I dont see why Bengals fans keep acting like he's a proven commodity, he hasnt done anything in this league yet except screw up, and you guys are going to tell me he's "easily" good for multiple pro bowl seasons:rolleyes:

Also not sure if it was posted but looks like there was another incident around the same time span that also involved Henry...

ProFootballTalk.com cites a WLWT-TV report that says Chris Henry, RB Chris Perry and DT Domata Peko could have charges filed against them after "incidents" at a club called "BANG" on Sunday.

The club released a statement saying it hadn't filed charges "pending the settlement of punitive damages," which the players have refused to pay. As PFT.com pointed out, it sounds like the club is trying to squeeze some money out of the Bengals players by threatening charges, but it's just more trouble in Cincinnati.

yes. I mean this really isn't an argument =P You're speculating that he can't do that, and I'm speculating that he can. I'm not going to waste all my time defending Chris Henry (who I am glad is off the team btw), but he's certainly a great receiver. Physically he has the hips, legs and hands to be an elite receiver.

Like I said previously, no bengals fan thinks Chris Henry is better than Chad Johnson. Chad has too much experience playing high tier cornerbacks and being double teamed to be out done by a receiver who spent most of his career suspended for his off-the-field actions. However, he certainly has the potential to be where Chad Johnson is if he put the work in. He's extremely talented and makes big plays.

I don't think Henry is better than Chad but he DEFINITELY has the tools to be but its kind of a moot point now. Hate to see a young man give up an opportunity like that but there's no way he deserves to be on a team at this point.

TitleTown088

He's in more trouble, believe it or not. In addition to the Monday altercation (allegedly) that got receiver Chris Henry cuffed by the cops and then cut by the Bengals, there’s another incident that could land Henry and two guys still employed by the team in hot water.

According to WLWT-TV, Henry and running back Chris Perry and defensive tackle Domata Peko were at a club called “BANG” in Cincinnati, where they allegedly caused an early-morning ruckus last Sunday.

The club issued the following statement on Thursday: “On March 30 around 1 a.m., there were incidents involving members of the Cincinnati Bengals Football team at BANG Nightclub. Chris Henry, Chris Perry and Domata Peko were escorted out by police at the close of the club. Charges have not been filed, pending the settlement of punitive damages.”

A league source tells us that the players have refused to pay anything to “BANG,” and that charges will indeed be pursued.

That said, we’re troubled by the appearance that the folks at “BANG” apparently tried to squeeze some money out of Henry and company by holding over their heads the possibility of filing charges. It’s not much different than what those guys in Little Rock tried to pull several weeks ago with Darren McFadden. The far better approach for the victim of an alleged crime is to get the cops involved before trying to squeeze any money out of the alleged perps.

Regardless, Perry and Peko could be the next members of the team that wears tiger stripes to be sporting prison stripes in due time. PFT.com

Peko is a great guy, seriously, he lives in my city, everybody loves him... He's golden, couldn't have been anything excessive. He's a big teddy bear.

Anyway, I guess me saying Henry could've been 'easily' better than TJ/CJ is harsh (keep in mind I said TJ as well, TJ is a beast so it's not just about hating Chad). Henry DEFINETELY had the tools, with great work ethic there's no doubt in my mind he would've at least been on their level. Incredible speed/size, he could bring down the hard catch as well. I have no reason to sit here and brag on a guy that's been nothing but trouble and is no longer on our team so this is how I feel.

If you watched the Bengals play on a semi frequent basis (Browns/Ravens/Steelers fans?), it was evident the potential was there.
