Bengals are dumb

Starting where they left off last season, Cincinnati Bengals linebacker A.J. Nicholson was arrested on a domestic violence charge Friday, the first brush with the law of a Bengals' player since commissioner Roger Goodell cracked down on misconduct last month. The team had gone an astounding 4 months since the last arrest. Police in nearby Taylor Mill, Ky., arrested Nicholson after a woman called 911 saying she had been hit in the face and suffered an injury by her eye. A.J. was charged with fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanour.

On Monday the Bengals released Nicholson, hours after he pleaded not guilty to a charge that he hit his girlfriend. She insists she accidentally hit herself with a cell phone, and police misread what happened.

It is a good thing for AJ's girlfriend that she only got hit in the face and not sodomized. I don't think anyone would have believed her when she recanted her original story by saying she tripped and landed on the wrong end of her mop.
