    Default Assault Accusation against Chris Henry..

    Bengals' wide-receiver Chris Henry is accused of breaking the law again.

    9News has learned that Florence police interviewed Henry, along with Bengal Reggie McNeal on Tuesday.

    The two football pros may have been involved in assaulting a 16-year-old boy.

    The family of the victim shared their story exclusively with 9News Tuesday night.

    They talked off-camera because they say they're not ready to publicly show their faces.

    But they are angry, alleging that Bengals players Chris Henry, along with a few others, beat the 16-year-old so severely that he had to be treated at the hospital for his injuries.

    "It's very obvious," said Captain Linny Cloyd, of the Florence police department. "I've seen the young man. There's no doubt he was assaulted. At this point we're still trying to figure out who is who – where they were."

    Police say the 16-year-old and an 18-year-old friend were walking along Wetherington Boulevard near Mt. Zion Road just after 11 p.m. Friday night when, they say a black Navigator or Escalade pulled up next to them.

    According to the police report, a white male jumped out and started punching the 16-year-old in the face.

    "From that, the victim tells us another gentleman got out of the vehicle the same vehicle and in their attempt to get away, was shoved to the ground by this African American gentleman," said Cloyd.

    The teen identified that man as Bengals receiver Chris Henry, and says receiver Reggie McNeill was also in the vehicle.

    The teen also alleges that they were throwing beer bottles at him as he tried to run away.

    "Go away, we don't want to talk to you."

    9News tried to talk to Chris Henry Tuesday night, but no one at his house wanted to talk to us.

    Henry lives just a few blocks away from where police say the assault happened.

    The victim's family tells 9News that the teen knows Henry and knows his vehicle because he lives in the neighborhood and was friends with Henry's younger brother.

    Police questioned Henry Tuesday afternoon and are taking this allegation very seriously.

    "We have been in contact with Mr. Henry and Mr. McNeal as to their whereabouts," said Capt. Cloyd. "They deny being in the area, or knowing this gentleman."

    Police say they are still following leads and their investigation is on-going.

    As for Chris Henry, he's been arrested four times in the past year-and-a-half for marijuana and gun charges, drunk driving and providing alcohol to female minors.

    His run-ins with the law got him an eight-game, unpaid suspension this upcoming season.

    If these allegation are true, this could spell the end of Chris Henry's career.

    NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said that Henry would be banished for life if there were any more mis-steps.

    Not that I feel like defending Henry but come one he just decided to pull over and beat a 16 yeard old, that sounds like a tall tale to me.

    I'm not sure I believe the story, but this is still going to be more horrible publicity for the Bengals and Chris Henry. But who knows, if the accusations are proven falsely quickly enough, maybe this wont even make it to ESPN seeing as how it happened tonight.

    Have to wait on this as always. One thing that may give this some legs is the kid is alleged to live in the neighborhood and friends with Henry's brother.

    Of course it's all speculation and may not be fair, but could this be big brother jumping little brother's aquaintance who is a bad influence or maybe even a bully?

    Not that Cincy fans haven't had it bad with the quantity of problems off the field, the Pacers trouble have been the quality.

    When Carson Palmer, Rudi, Ocho, or Who'syourmomma get suspended or have off the field issues THEN I'll feel bad for the Bengals.

    No Charges Against Bengals' HenryFLORENCE, Ky. -- No charges will be filed against Chris Henry in an alleged assault, police said.

    The 16-year-old and his family stopped cooperating with police and two other suspects were identified in the attack, Florence police said at a Friday afternoon news conference.

    Police said the assailants were two Florence men, but officers did not identify them.

    The teen had claimed last week Henry, who on probation for a 2006 firearm conviction in Florida, and another man jumped from an SUV and assaulted them June 8 near Mount Zion Road.

    The boy also said Bengals wide receiver Reggie McNeal was inside the vehicle during the attack.

    A league source told News 5 after those reports had been made public that the allegations had been fabricated.

    Henry is among nine Bengals to be arrested since the end of the 2005 season, and he's not the only troubled player to be the subject of conflicting reports of alleged misbehavior.

    Last week two men accused Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman, who is eligible to apply for reinstatement to the NFL following a one-season ban for substance abuse violations, of assaulting them earlier this month at a party in Georgia.

    However, the men dropped their claims before a scheduled court appearance and no charges were filed against Thurman.
