CINCINNATI (AP) - Linebacker A-J Nicholson has been arrested on
a domestic violence charge -- the first arrest of a Cincinnati
Bengals player since N-F-L commissioner Roger Goodell cracked down
on misconduct last month.
Police in nearby Taylor Mill, Kentucky, arrested Nicholson after
a woman called 9-1-1 this afternoon to say she had been assaulted
by the second-year player. He was charged with fourth-degree
assault, a misdemeanor.
Two Bengals -- receiver Chris Henry and middle linebacker Odell
Thurman -- currently are suspended by the league for misconduct.
Last March, Nicholson pleaded no contest to burglary and grand
theft in Tallahassee, Florida, and was sentenced to two months in a
work program. Nicholson was also placed on two years' probation,
which could be jeopardized by his latest arrest.
Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the team had no immediate
comment because it was still gathering information on the arrest.
