More than a few Bengals fans took issue with our recent suggestion that former Cincy running back Corey Dillon must be hoping to return to the team, given that he has been arrested twice in less than two weeks. And, in all fairness, Bengals players had stayed out of trouble lately.
Until this morning.
WLWT-TV, an NBC affiliate, reports that Bengals receiver Maurice Purify was arrested early Tuesday for disorderly conduct. The incident occurred at a local bar. Authorities reportedly will release more details at a noon Tuesday.
And the Bengals can’t claim they didn’t have reason to believe that Purify might get in trouble. He was charged with assault and resisting arrest while in college at Nebraska, and he was cited for DUI while on probation.
