just cuz the Bengals drafted him, didn't mean he had to start acting like one. that's too bad. he is still a great guy and an excellent player. but, northern Kentucky? got me on that one.

Cincy story said Maualuga's blood-alcohol was .157 and the legal limit is .08. Ouch. I thought he was over the childish issues that hindered him at USC. I'm not saying he can't drink, he should be able to, but either get a taxi or a limo to take you home. These incidents are not worth his entire NFL career. Get smashed at home.

I saw this already on another web site and someone said that where he was is just south of Cincinnati and a lot of the pro players go there to party. Apparently they're a little more lenient than Ohio when it comes to DUIs and such.

Northern KY and Cincy are basically the same place. Like living in SF and driving in Oakland.
Hopefully he learns from this, everyone makes mistakes and NFL players are no exception.

Now wait just a minute there my friends.
We know that Ray has a broken ankle, and it is hard and awkward getting to the break with that boot on.
He plead not guilty. We have to wait. It will be long forgotten come training camp time. I don't think rookies can afford cabs, and those darned parked cars and meters have been known to jump in the way on occasion....

Cincy used to have "blue laws" also drinking age was lower in Tucky. So everyone from Cincy went to Tucky-airport is in Tucky.

Since he didn't know Chris Henry well- probably a guy with alot of partying trouble made no impression on him- of course the Bungles just LOVE this behavior. Hopefully someone will smack him around some...

What? no gun?
What kind of NFL player is he?
Doesn't he know little hood rats see him as a role model?

Is one thing to have the tools needed to deal with football....but having the tools needed to deal with life decisions is the parents and coaches (from USC down to the single A loggers) responsibility ultimately someone failed in preparing him for a pro career

It would be nice to see a list of the very few who did play professional football from Humboldt so we could take it out of our pocket and hand it to all of the 55 year old wannabe jock-sniffers who like to keep on boring everyone with stories of how great they were in high school or college. Getting that list around would be a public service of tremendous proportions. Then maybe these veteren bores could get on with their lives instead of going around thinking they are entitled to do whatever they want, continuing to drink and drive until they are dead or kill someone else, AND boring all of the rest of us until we are very near to death from sheer, unadulterated, boredom with their old football feats (lies?).

Just out of curiosity...who are you talking about? Or are you just ranting in general?

Good thing no one was injured and hopefully he can learn from his mistake. How many people do you know with a DUI? Likely quite a few. People from all walks of life get them every day.
My hope is that Ray learned something from this and next time he wants to go out and drink he will hire a car. It is cheaper than a DUI and bad press is not what a pro ball player in Cincy needs.
Good luck Ray and take it seriously at DUI class.
