Suspended Bengals LB Thurman charged with DUI
Associated Press


CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman was arrested early Monday on a drunken driving charge.

Thurman, already serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, registered 0.18 percent on a blood-alcohol test -- more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent, according to the police arrest report.

Police said Thurman, who drove an SUV across a double-yellow line, was stopped about 3 a.m. near a sobriety checkpoint operated by police and the State Highway Patrol.

A second-round draft pick out of Georgia last year, Thurman led the Bengals in tackles and had five interceptions as a rookie, helping Cincinnati reach the playoffs with its first winning record since 1990.

The arrest is "certainly a concern since he recently was suspended, but this is an entirely new case," Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said Monday.

Thurman has one game left on his suspension.

The Bengals (3-0) defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 28-20 on Sunday to stay in a first-place tie with Baltimore (3-0) in the AFC North.

Dumbass!!


Does anyone know the official ramifications of this arrest?? Can the league impose another suspension or does he just get a fine and a warning??

I heard that Chris Henry was in the car with him, & obviously Reggie McNeal was in the car also since he owns it. Just another player wasting away his talent....

My bet is "substance abuse" means you need a prescription or it is illegal before ingesting the substance to get suspended.

Hard to see the NFL cracking down for alcohol abuse given who pays the bills for the broadcasts.

Did the Rams player (Little?) get suspended because he killed a woman in a motor vehicle murder? I recall Little was drunk at the time so it should not be called an accident.

So much for the new mature Bengals

Here are some of the highlights from another loss by the Bengals to their toughest opponent - the Cincinnati Police Department

1. Odell Thurman Takes One For The Team

A police videotape shows an officer asking Thurman to step out of the car and asking him how much he had to drink.

"I had a couple of beers,'' Thurman responded.

Thurman said he was driving because the others he was with "had more than I did.''


Thurman blew a .17, which is considered a high-tier reading, said Officer Stephen Lawson of the Cincinnati Police Traffic Section. The .17 is more than double Ohio?s legal blood-alcohol limit of .08.


2. Chris Henry Unwinds After A Tough Game

Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry was a passenger and threw up out a window of the vehicle.

3. Marvin Lewis Trots Out The Party Line

In his first public comments since linebacker Odell Thurman's arrest this morning, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis condemned the linebacker's behavior as "not right," and said such actions "are not what we stand for."

At this point the Benglas have a more talented team than the Steelers but are fast repalcing the Raiders or Vikings as the league's poster boys for being out of control

Well my earlier post that the NFL probably regards drunk driving to be a "boys will be boys" issue may be way wrong.

Coach Marvin Lewis expects middle linebacker Odell Thurman to be suspended for the rest of the season following his arrest early Monday on a drunken driving charge, making him the sixth Cincinnati Bengal arrested this year.

Lewis expects Thurman to get an additional punishment from the league. Another violation of its substance abuse policy brings a minimum one-year suspension in addition to the one he is already serving.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2601900

If Thurman is gone for the year that is a real problem for the Bengals solving last year's inability to stop the run.

I believe the character issue just may have taken a big bite out of this team.
