Henry loves crime

Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry, already facing possible NFL punishment for problems with the law, has been cited on three traffic charges including driving with a suspended license. Henry also was ticketed for an alleged improper turn and seat belt violation. His vehicle was impounded after he was stopped March 21, and he paid $100 to retrieve it Monday, court records show. Henry, suspended for two games by the NFL last season, could face more punishment after settling the last of his earlier four court cases by serving two days in Kenton County (Ky.) jail in January. That was for letting minors drink in a hotel room he had rented. Henry has had four arrests in 14 months, including marijuana possession, a weapon charge, and a drunken-driving count that resulted in a guilty plea to reckless operation of a vehicle.

To be arrested so many times in the last 14 months, Henry obviously doesn’t understand the concept of law and order. Or maybe he’s just tired of the daily grind of football and is looking for an honourable way to exit the profession. Given the choice between getting crunched by linebackers or wasting away your youth drinking Colt 45 and smoking blunts, the choice is clear. It’s the American ghetto dream, yo.
