CINCINNATI (AP) -Former Bengal Chris Henry was released from jail Friday, spending an extra night there because no one was available to provide a court-ordered monitoring device.
He was released from the Hamilton County jail Friday, although his $51,000 bond was posted Thursday night.
Henry, 24, was cut by the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, a few hours before he was arraigned on charges of assault and criminal damaging. A man accused Henry of punching him in the face and breaking his car window with a beer bottle on Monday night.
Henry has been arrested five times since December 2005. He is due back in court on the latest charge on April 15.
Henry surrendered Wednesday night. He could have been freed Thursday afternoon if he had been fitted with the electronic monitor while under house arrest, sheriff's spokesman Steve Barnett said.
According to a complaint filed with authorities, Henry was identified by Gregory Meyer and a witness who claimed Henry punched Meyer in the face Monday night, causing ``visible injury.'' Henry then threw a beer bottle at Meyer's car, breaking the rear passenger window, according to an affidavit.
