CINCINNATI (AP) -Receiver Chris Henry allegedly was involved in an altercation with a parking attendant on the eve of rejoining the Cincinnati Bengals from his eight-game suspension.|
Henry practiced with the Bengals on Wednesday and will be eligible to play Sunday in Baltimore. Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him for the first half of the season for violating the NFL's conduct policy.
The third-year receiver stayed out of trouble during the suspension and was allowed to practice with the team for the last two weeks. He sat out the 33-21 loss in Buffalo on Sunday that dropped his last-place team to 2-6.
On Tuesday night, police in Newport, Ky., a suburb on the other side of the Ohio River within view of Paul Brown Stadium, were called to an entertainment district following a dispute over a parking fee.
A parking attendant told police that Henry and another man parked their sport utility vehicle without paying. According to an incident report, the attendant said Henry argued loudly with him and said, ``Don't you know who I am?''
The attendant, Jason Baker, 35, of Bellevue, Ky., told police that Henry threw a $5 bill on the ground, but it was returned to him and police were called.
No charges have been filed. Baker was told by police he could file a complaint with prosecutors if he wanted to pursue the matter. Baker didn't return a phone message on Wednesday.
The Bengals were aware of the report but had no comment, noting that no charges had been filed.
