Bengals pick up where they left off

Police recovered a reported-stolen vehicle Wednesday evening from the home of troubled Bengals receiver Chris Henry. An officer spotted a car he did not recognize parked in the Cincinnati Bengal’s driveway, ran the license plates and discovered the car had been reported stolen by a rental-car company.

Henry told investigators that his own vehicle had been stolen in Louisiana, where he is from originally, and he rented a car from Hertz. The Bengals' wide receiver said he thought his insurance company was paying for the car, so he had not made any payment for the vehicle. Authorities said Hertz had not received payment from Henry or his insurance company, and the car was reported stolen. Scheben added that a decision about charges against Henry would not be made until the investigation is complete. Henry holds the current NFL record for most arrests in a 14-month span.

Scheben said deputies patrolling neighborhoods often run license plates from unfamiliar vehicles through their computer, so he said the deputy who ran the plate at Henry's home wasn't doing anything unusual.

Well, that settles that. Marvin Lewis can relax now, there’s absolutely no police profiling of his players. And by no profiling, I mean at least the cops didn’t leave a bloody glove on Henry’s driveway.
