Bengals' Henry jailed on alcohol charge

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry was sent to jail for two days on Thursday after pleading guilty to allowing minors to drink alcohol in his hotel room last spring.
He is one of nine players on the NFL team arrested in the past 13 months. Henry has been arrested four times as a Bengals player.
"You brought shame with this on yourself," Kenton County District Judge Greg Grothaus told Henry. "You embarrassed a lot of people."
Grothaus sentenced Henry to 90 days in jail. He suspended all but two days, and ordered Henry to begin serving those two days immediately.
"It's good that this case involving Chris has been resolved," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. "Now Chris must continue to strive to mature and grow both as a player and as a person."
On June 3, Henry was charged with driving under the influence in Clermont County, Ohio. He entered a guilty plea there on Wednesday to a reduced charge of reckless operation of a vehicle, and got a suspended 30-day sentence.
Henry originally was charged in Covington with three counts of unlawful transaction with a minor. Police said he brought alcohol for three females _ ages 18, 16 and 15 _ in a Covington motel room April 29. One of the three, Monica Beamon, 18, was charged with murder in Cincinnati last September.
