Bengals' Nicholson arrested on domestic violence charge

Associated Press

Updated: May 18, 2007, 6:29 PM ET

CINCINNATI -- Linebacker A.J. Nicholson was arrested on a domestic violence charge Friday, the first arrest of a Cincinnati Bengals' player since commissioner Roger Goodell cracked down on misconduct last month.

Nicholson already was one of nine Bengals players arrested during a nine-month span, turning the team into a prime example of player misconduct. The team had gone four months without having a player arrested.

Police in nearby Taylor Mill, Ky., arrested Nicholson after a woman called 911 on Friday afternoon to say she had been assaulted by the second-year player. He was charged with fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

Goodell introduced a new conduct policy last month that stiffens penalties and holds franchises responsible when their players get into trouble.

Nicholson, a fifth-round draft pick from Florida State in 2006, appeared in only two games last season, when he had a hamstring injury.

Last March, Nicholson pleaded no contest to burglary and grand theft in Tallahassee, Fla., and was sentenced to two months in a work program. He had been charged with stealing electronic equipment and other items from the apartment of a former Florida State teammate.

Nicholson was also placed on two years' probation, which could be jeopardized by his latest arrest.

Taylor Mill police chief Steve Knauf said a woman called police to Nicholson's apartment at 3:10 p.m. on Friday, saying she had been hit in the face. The officer who responded saw that the woman had an injury by her eye.

Nicholson wasn't at the apartment, but later showed up at the police station and was arrested, Knauf said. He faces up to 12 months in jail and a $500 fine if convicted.

Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the team had no immediate comment because it was still gathering information on the arrest.

The Bengals lead the league in off-the-field player problems.

Receiver Chris Henry and middle linebacker Odell Thurman currently are suspended by the league for misconduct. Henry has been arrested four times since December 2005, and will miss the first eight games next season under a suspension imposed by Goodell last month.

Thurman was suspended for all of last season after skipping a drug test and getting arrested for drunken driving. Last February, he pleaded no contest to drunken driving and received a 90-day jail sentence that was put on hold while he got treated for alcohol abuse.

Thurman's sentence could be reduced at a hearing in June if he stays out of trouble and completes the treatment program. Also, he could apply to the league for reinstatement for next season.

Six of the Bengals' picks from the 2005-06 drafts have been arrested, including Nicholson. The linebacker already had disciplinary issues when the Bengals took a chance on him.

Nicholson was suspended for Florida State's appearance in the 2006 Orange Bowl after he violated team policy by taking a woman to the team's hotel in Miami.

A month after the Bengals drafted him, he faced the criminal charges in Florida. He and another Florida State player, Fred Rouse, were accused of breaking into the apartment of former teammate Lorenzo Booker and stealing items.

Lewis has hired and coddled these criminals. Somehow he has believed that bringing them in and giving them opportunities would change their characters. The only thing the money has done for them is to display how "rich" thugs behave. Obviously I'm not a Bengal fan, but having to live here, it's an embarrassment to our city.

Just so we all know what he was like before, AJ Nicholson went to Florida State, which is not a great thing to begin with. He had a DUI, then had a fight or something and was busted for resisting arrest, and finally was busted for raping a 19 year old girl.

Nice guy.

I am not worried about the team or thier fans.In a year or two the Bengals will be back at the bottom of the division and thier fans will once again cease to exist for another 15 or so years.

The Bengals and thier fans,like locusts,but worse.

and in a desperate act of damage control, this pud was released today, immediately after the news broke that henry failed a drug test (as if that would turn back time) :toofunny:

stupid bungles! releasing this dickhead doesnt cover up the fact that the rest of your team is dickheads. just take a page from the steelers books, look at bam morris or richard "big pimpin" seigler, and you might find out how things are supposed to be done.

id ask why the bungles didnt drop nicholson a while ago, but then i'd have to answer why he was drafted in the 1st place.

the patriots seem fond of bengals rejects and reformation projects. with their impending need at lb'er he may have a place on their roster in 08 after he serves his suspension.

on a sidenote, his girlfriend backtracked and said she hit herself in the eye with the telephone. :rolleyes:

Oh, I forgot one more incident. When he was at FSU, he was also arrested for stealing a bunch of stuff from another players apartment. The Bengals knew about that one, too. I don't know about anyone else, but when I was raised I was told there is nothing worse than a thief.

Nicholson in Florida jail for allegedly violating probation
By Len Pasquarelli
ESPN.com

First the domestic abuse charge filed against A.J. Nicholson last week landed him in the unemployment line. Now it has landed the former Cincinnati Bengals linebacker, released by the team on Monday afternoon, in jail.

Officials at the Leon County, Fla., jail confirmed Saturday afternoon that Nicholson is being held there for allegedly violating the terms of his probation. The Cincinnati Enquirer first reported Saturday that Nicholson had been jailed in Florida.

A spokesperson said Nicholson will be held in the jail until a probation revocation hearing is convened, but could not say when that hearing is scheduled.

A former Florida State standout, Nicholson was placed on two years' probation in Florida after he served 60 days at a work camp in 2006 on charges that he broke into the apartment of a former Seminoles teammate while still in college. Last week, Nicholson was charged with misdemeanor assault after allegedly striking the mother of his two-year-old son.

On Monday, Nicholson pleaded not guilty to a fourth-degree assault charge, and the woman involved in the case, Victoria Johnson, recanted her original contention that Nicholson had struck her. But officials in Kenton County, Ky. refused to drop the charges, which carry a maximum sentence of one year. Nicholson faces a May 31 pre-trial hearing and possible revocation of his probation in Kentucky.

Just hours after Nicholson entered the not guilty plea, the Bengals released him. He was not claimed on waivers by any other NFL team. Shortly after that, Florida officials, informed of the charges in Kentucky, arrested Nicholson for the alleged probation violation.

Nicholson, 23, was selected by the Bengals in the fifth round of the 2006 draft and signed a four-year, $1.77 million contract that included a $159,000 signing bonus. But he appeared in just two games as a rookie and did not register a tackle.

Cincinnati has bolstered its linebacker corps in the offseason and, even without his latest legal entanglements, Nicholson might have been hard pressed to earn a roster spot.
