Default Odell Thurman in trouble again

More trouble for Thurman
Suspended LB failed to report to probation officer
BY KIMBALL PERRY | KPERRY@ENQUIRER.COM

Suspended Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman violated his Hamilton County probation and must show up in court to explain why.

Thurman, who was suspended all of last season and for all of the 2007 season by the NFL, was supposed to report to his Hamilton County probation officer July 24.

When he didn’t, Probation Officers Liz Albert and Bob Lutkenhoff filed a criminal complaint against him for not reporting.

They also said Thurman still owes $574 in fees, fines and costs due the probation department.


Thurman’s Cincinnati attorney, Ed Perry, didn’t return calls today.

The probation was set by Municipal Court Judge John Burlew after Thurman, 23, was arrested and charged with drunk driving.

Initially, Burlew sentenced the linebacker from the University of Georgia to 90 days in jail but reduced that to a six-day, in-treatment program after Thurman admitted he was an alcoholic and spent several months this year in rehab.

Burlew also suspended the player’s driver’s license and placed him on probation.

Court records note Thurman was on probation less than two months before he was accused of violating it.

Thurman, whose NFL career could be ended by this probation violation, must report Aug. 21 to Burlew to address the violation.

More trouble for Thurman

This might explain the extra year that got tacked on by Goodell. The suspension was extended by Goodell on July 26, and according to this, he failed to report to the probation officer on July 24.

Marvin Lewis Responds to Thurman Troubles
Cincinnati Esquire
August 1, 2007

After hearing suspended Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman violated his Hamilton County probation, Marvin Lewis stated "It's a sad day in Bengal history". Then surprisingly, Lewis stated that Odell Thurman explained to him that on the morning of July 24 Commisioner Roger Goodell broke into Thurman's home, tackled him to the ground and tied him up to a chair.

Thurman went on to explain that Goodell kept yelling over and over again, "You are done in this league!!! My evil plan has worked!! You will never make your probation meeting!!! You are done!!" while in a fit of rage.

Roger Goodell had no comment and authorities are stilling looking into Thurman's claims. Marvin Lewis went on to say "This is just another example of the league "picking on Odell" and on "our storied and classy franchise. We will not put up with this type of abuse".

Stay tuned for further details on Marvin's excuse making and crying.

"More" trouble for Odell? Is there any trouble left that he hasn't already gotten into?
