CINCINNATI (AP) -Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry surrendered to police after being accused of punching an 18-year-old man in the face and breaking his car window with a beer bottle.
Henry was being held in the Hamilton County jail pending a court appearance Thursday after being charged with misdemeanor assault and criminal damaging. A warrant for the arrest of the 24-year-old Henry was issued Wednesday and he surrendered, a police spokesman said.
Henry, arrested five times since December 2005, 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 on Monday, causing ``visible injury.'' Henry then threw a beer bottle at Meyer's car, breaking the rear passenger window, according to the affidavit.
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 also pleaded guilty to letting minors drink alcohol in a hotel room he had rented in 2006. He served two days in a northern Kentucky jail.
Following his NFL suspension, Henry caught 21 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns.
