Chris Henry is Broke & it is Your Problem Cincinnati

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on July 9, 2008

Chris Henry has made 2.5 million since 2005 as a member of the Cincinnati Thugs Bengalis yet the boy is so broke that Michael Vick looks like Bill Gates compared to him. Guess what fair citizens of Cincinnati it’s your problem because Henry wants taxpayers to pay for a trial record.

“He’s broke,” said Perry Ancona, the former player’s attorney. “He doesn’t have any money to pay for a transcript.”

And that comment cost the taxpayers of Cincinnati at least fifty big ones.

Ancona filed a motion asking for taxpayers, you know the people who actually work, to pay for a written transcript of Henry’s trial. Henry was arrested after a March 31 incident and charged with criminal damaging and assault.

A judge threw out the criminal damaging charge, saying Cincinnati prosecutors couldn’t prove the allegation. A mistrial was declared last week on the assault charge when jurors couldn’t come to a unanimous verdict. Jurors said they voted 6-2 to acquit Henry.

But prosecutors said Tuesday they would retry Henry on the misdemeanor assault charge.

Henry’s trial was set for Monday.

Henry, a wide receiver drafted in the third round out of WVU, signed a five-year contract for about $6 million. The contract included annual salaries plus playing-time and other incentives.

He received another $1 million to sign plus an average of just over $500,000 for the first three years. He was to be paid $520,000 this year by the team but the team released him after his arrest.

But Ancona claims Henry is as destitute as the Bengalis defense was last year.

“He has no funds whatsoever and can’t even meet his current obligations,” Ancona told the judge.

Don’t worry though, Jerry Jones will sign him. That way he can have the top 2 convicts in the league on each side of the ball. (Pacman Jones) Anyone notice both of them went to the same school?

Henry’s $360,000 Florence house – he bought it in 2005 during his rookie year – was auctioned in May when he failed to pay the mortgage. How the hell we missed that story here I’ll never know.

Henry’s SUV was repossessed last month while he was in court, which was a lot. Damn it Joel you let that one slip by me as well? Ugh!

Henry, who is suspended by the National Football League, was arrested after a March 31 incident in Clifton Heights in which he was accused of punching Gregory Meyer, 18, in the head.

Ancona said in court Tuesday that Meyer tried to “shake down” Henry by asking for $100,000 to make the charges go away.

The assault charge against Henry carries a maximum sentence of 180 days in jail.

Henry wants to continue a professional football career and needs to be acquitted to do that.

However I think he could work at the McDonalds or he could sell pot, seeing as he has a history around it.

Chris, your “friends” aren’t helping you out?
You know, all those people who helped drink your liquor?
Unemployment benefits?
Pretend to be a gas pump?
Pathetic.

    Bet he wishes he paid that $100K now, or pulled a Ted Kennedy and drowned the bitch. (For you youngsters, search Chappaquiddick.)
