CINCINNATI (AP) -Former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry will be released from court-ordered electronic monitoring and house arrest so he can try out for another NFL team.
Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Richard Bernat issued the ruling Tuesday, when Henry's attorney Perry Ancona said the player has an offer to try out for a team. Ancona did not identify the team.
The 24-year-old has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of assault and criminal damaging dating to March, when a University of Cincinnati student told police Henry punched him in the head and damaged his car.
Henry was suspended by the NFL for eight games last season because of earlier arrests. The Bengals released him last month.
Henry will be required to show the court a letter from the team he's trying out for before he's permitted to travel.
