Troubles keep coming for Henry

Posted: 5:35 p.m.



With Chris Henry facing another alcohol-related charge, his future with the Bengals and the NFL looks to be squarely in the hands of NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue.

WCPO-TV in Cincinnati reported Wednesday that Henry turned himself in at the Kenton County Justice Center on three counts of unlawful transaction with a minor, charges that stem from giving several underage girls alcohol in a May incident at the Courtyard Marriott in Covington, according to the station.

It's his fourth arrest in six months and comes two weeks after he was arrested on a DUI in Batavia, Ohio. He has already admitted guilt in a charge of marijuana possession and paid a a $250 fine, and is still waiting trial on a felony gun charge in Orlando, Fla.

According to NFL player conduct policy, any conviction, or admission in a second crime brings a suspension decided by the commissioner. According to the NFL substance abuse policy, discipline for a second alcohol-related offense is likely a suspension, the duration which may escalate for repeat offenders.
