Bengals Cut Chris Henry

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

The Cincinnati Bengals have decided they've had enough of Chris Henry's legal problems, so they've cut the wide receiver after his fifth arrest since 2005.

An attorney for the 24-year-old Henry entered not-guilty pleas for him after Henry was accused of punching an 18-year-old man in the face and breaking his car window with a beer bottle.

A Municipal Court judge in Cincinnati set bond at $51,000 on charges of misdemeanor assault and criminal damaging. The judge noted Henry's previous arrests involving drugs, guns and alcohol, and called Henry "a one-man crime wave." He ordered electronic monitoring if Henry makes bail.

Bengals president Mike Brown said in a statement that Henry had forfeited his career with the club.

Henry was suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for the first half of last season for repeatedly violating the league's conduct policy. He was also suspended for two games in 2006.
