Fifth Time's a Charm -- NFL Convict Busted Again

4/3/2008 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris HenryChris Henry of the Cincinnati Bengals is determined to flush his NFL career down the toilet.

The 24-year-old wide receiver -- who was arrested a whopping four times in a 14-month span and suspended for half of last season by the NFL -- turned himself into police yesterday after an 18-year-old guy accused Henry of hitting him in the face and breaking his car window with a beer bottle.

A spokesman for the team said they are aware of the incident, but had no comment. Henry's agent said Henry had a different account of what went down, but wouldn't say more.

UPDATE: Mission accomplished -- the Bengals have cut Chris Henry. Bengals president Mike Brown said in a statement, "Chris Henry has forfeited his opportunity to pursue a career with the Bengals. His conduct can no longer be tolerated."

After doing some research, I believe he hasn't even made a full mil in the league due to suspensions. He's only been playing for 3 yearsand had a salary of 350k at a high point. He was also lost over 200K last season in penalties. I think in total he made roughly 700K before taxes. Taxes are probably close to half of that. My guess is that he also has a posse(aka gang) that he takes care of. Not to mention a phat ride and house. I would say he does not have that much left. Don't know what smart lawyer would take his case.

He is not a thug. He went to a good school, grew up in a good neighborhood, and is a good football player. I know I went to school with him. Money just got to his head I guess. This is not a black or white thing cause he went to a mostly white school. Learn your facts first. He never go in trouble before the NFL. I don't understand why he would throw it all away. I am not taking up for him because he has made some stupid and unitelligent choices. He deserves what he gets and should go to jail. But he was a good person before the money got to his head!

Well Crap Chris,

So I live in Cincy and despite all of his run ins we all loved Chris Henry. We rooted for him and backed him up, and threw a freaking parade practically when he got to start playing again! Why the heck do you continue to throw your talent away by getting in trouble? It doesn't make any sense. I'm sorry that it finally had to come to this, but maybe it will knock some sense into him. He had an incredibly promising career. Now its just marred with police reports...COME ON. We'll miss you #15

What is wrong with all these people who throw away a chance like this? I just don't get it. At least the Bengals did the right thing, Go Bengals for standing up for what's right!
