Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga recently was charged with misdemeanor assault, based on a claim that he punched a bar employee.

To little if any surprise, Maualuga claims he didn’t do it.

According to the Associated Press, Maualuga’s lawyer filed a written plea on Friday proclaiming his innocence.  The alleged incident occurred only days after Maualuga’s probation from a 2010 DUI guilty plea expired.

As a possible repeat offender, Maualuga could be facing a suspension under the personal-conduct policy.  He was fined two game checks for his DUI plea.

    However, he pled guilty to being a very average football player.

    Here come the comments about him being guilty even though nothing is proven…

    Hardest hit he made all year. Seriously, guilty or not.. this guy has no right wearing an NFL uniform. Caleb Miller, yeah I said it, made a better effort and got to the RB more often.

    You can take Rey out of Humboldt….

    Man, watched him play for Eureka High up here in Humboldt County. Thought he was going to do well at USC and in the NFL.

    Maybe if he smoked a little herb he wouldn’t have punched (allegedly) the bar manager in the face.

    He looks like he didn’t do it.

    “…and it looks like number 98, wait, no, that’s 88, no, I’m sorry…”

    If he was on trial for being a great LB, would there be enough evidence to convict him?

    Sadly no. I’ve watched him every game for the last two years and he plays soft as a fat babies bottom.

    Well he promised to straighten out after his last incident and I believed him, actually. Whether he is guilty or not, he sure put himself in a bad situation…again. Derp.

    I’m a life long Bengals fan and whole heartedly think this a##hole needs to go to jail. My sympathy is with the victim.
