CINCINNATI (AP) -Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry is in trouble again, accused by an 18-year-old man who told police that Henry hit him in the face and broke his car window with a beer bottle.
Henry, 24, was charged with misdemeanor assault and criminal damaging in the Monday incident in Cincinnati. A warrant for his arrest was issued Wednesday, and Henry surrendered, a police spokesman said.
Henry was being held in the Hamilton County jail pending a court appearance Thursday.
Henry has had a string of problems with police. He most recently was in court last week after being ticketed for driving with expired Kentucky license plates. He paid $149 in fines and court costs, according to the Hamilton County Municipal Court records.
Henry, arrested four times during a 14-month span, was suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for the first half of last season for repeatedly violating the league's conduct policy.
Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the team is aware of the charges but declined comment.
The player's agent, Marvin Frazier, said Henry gave him a different version of events but declined to elaborate.
``I was told it didn't happen that way,'' Frazier said.
Court records don't indicate that Henry has hired an attorney in the new case.
According to a statement filed with Hamilton County authorities, Henry was identified by Gregory Meyer, whose hometown was not listed, and an eyewitness. The eyewitness claimed Henry punched Meyer, causing ``visible injury.'' Henry then threw a beer bottle at Meyer's car, breaking the rear passenger window, according to the affidavit.
After his prior arrest, Henry pleaded guilty to letting minors drink alcohol in a hotel room he had rented. He served two days in a northern Kentucky jail.
The Bengals issued a statement expressing frustration with Henry when he was in traffic court a year ago for driving with a suspended license.
Following his NFL suspension, Henry caught 21 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns.
