 CINCINNATI (AP) -Suspended Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman has been ordered to appear in court for allegedly violating probation on his drunken driving conviction.
A Hamilton County probation officer Liz Albert said Thurman failed to show up for a scheduled meeting on July 24. Thurman then was ordered to appear before Municipal Court judge John Burlew on Aug. 21 to explain himself.
If the judge decides Thurman violated probation, the linebacker could be sent to jail.
The NFL suspended Thurman last season after he skipped a drug test and later was arrested on a drunken driving charge.
Two days after Thurman is accused of skipping the meeting with probation officers, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell denied his request for reinstatement for the 2007 season.
Thurman's lawyer didn't return a phone message Wednesday.
The linebacker was arrested last September. He pleaded no contest to the drunken driving charge in February and was sentenced to 90 days in jail, with a chance to reduce the sentence if he got treatment for alcohol abuse.
At a June 1 hearing, Burlew reduced the sentence to six days in a treatment center. Thurman could be ordered to serve the full sentence if he violated probation.
It's the second time Thurman has been in trouble since his sentencing.
Two men in Monticello, Ga., filed a complaint against Thurman, alleging that he kicked and hit them at a party two days after he appeared in court to settle the drunken driving case. Thurman, who lives in Monticello, was never charged, and his accusers later dropped their complaint.
Thurman is one of 10 Bengals arrested over a 14-month span. Goodell also suspended receiver Chris Henry for the first eight games of the 2007 season for repeatedly violating the league's conduct policy.
