Former Bengal Chris Perry arrested

Former Cincinnati Bengals first-round draft pick Chris Perry was arrested on Wednesday in Brooklyn.

TMZ reports that police say Perry got in a fist fight with a family member. According to the report, Perry was arrested in his grandmother’s home after he was accused of hitting his cousin in the face after an argument.

The Bengals took Perry out of Michigan with the 26th overall pick in the 2004 NFL draft. He gained just 606 yards as a Bengal and was cut before the start of the 2009 season.

Perry was drafted by the UFL’s Florida Tuskers and didn’t play in the NFL last year, although the Jets did take a look at him in December.

    I guess he wouldn’t loan someone money and they got mad.

    Look, Mike Brown. Hiring out of control criminals worked in “Slap Shot” because it was in the script. IT WAS JUST A MOVIE.

    Must be something in that division. Browns get staph infections, Bengals go to jail, Steelers are stupid. Cant wait to see what will befall the Ravens.

    fyi, Corey Dillon also got arrested this week. These Bengals posts should be accompanied by an audio background track… “feels good to be a gangsta”.

    “Must be something in that division. Browns get staph infections, Bengals go to jail, Steelers are stupid. Cant wait to see what will befall the Ravens.”
    YOU must be a fan of a team that gets their ass kicked regularly by teams in the AFC North…I GUARANTEE your team has plenty of misfits CURRENTLY! LOL Perry is not a Bengal and hasn been for 2 years….
    “fyi, Corey Dillon also got arrested this week. These Bengals posts should be accompanied by an audio background track… “feels good to be a gangsta”.
    Corey Dillon retired from the PAts and won a SB with them so your reference to him as a Bengal means you dont know football …Educate yourself son!

    Anyone commenting on Chris Perry or Corey Dillon in relation to Cincy has either had their asses handed to them by one of the AFC North teams or they’re Steelers fans trying to shift focus off of themselves. Good luck with that!

    The Bungles draft record is hilarious. Perry was a complete waste and he doesn’t even make the top 10 Cincinnati draft busts of all time.
    Tonight should go well when they reach for a tight end and then not know how to use him.

    Back in my day you could have a fistfight with your cousin and keep it within the family. What kind of doosh relative busts his cousin for a punch in the face?
    I’m not defending Perry. He’s by all accounts a bust of a football player, but a fistfight with his cousin results in an arrest? Seriously? What is his cousin, a 5 year old girl?

    Dealing with a parent who has been diagnosed with cancer can be devastating, however under NO circumstances does that justify attacking another individual. Why is it that athletes try to use excuses for their aggressive behaviors, when is enough enough. They like everyone else should be held accountable for their actions.
    Being very close to the family, I know that the victim in the assault case was attacked because he contacted Chris Perry in an attempt to encourage him to come to New York to visit his mother after learning that she had been diagnosed with Cancer. The family had become concerned because it took nearly 2 weeks for Chris Perry to arrive. It is well known that he is currently unemployed so why would it take that long to come see his mother? It’s unconscionable that Chris Perry would use his mother’s illness to rationalize him attacking another individual. Especially, since Chris Perry has been estranged from most of his family (including his mother) after becoming an NFL player by his own choice and most people would assume it is because family members wanted money but that was not the case.
    Mrs. Perry illness is affecting more than just Chris Perry alone, it is important to know that his mother is loved and supported by many family members. Instead of continuing to focus on healing and supporting his mother the families energy now has to also go into dealing with the backlash of Chris Perry’s selfish act.
    A website has Perry’s representation being quoted as saying “Tensions are obviously very high, as it would be for any family coping with a loved one suffering from cancer. Chris’ strong relationship with his mother, and her current care, is his main focus.” If he was so focused and concerned why did the victim have to contact him to implore him to come to New York to see his own mother? Why didn’t he think of the ramification of his actions before attacking a family member, how can any of this be conducive to his mother’s current situation. Furthermore, it is deplorable that a person who is trained to physically withstand/deliver brutal force would attack another person.
