The Cincinnati Bengals Are Like School On A Saturday

As the sun rises and sets so continues the commitment to criminal excellence by the Cincinnati Bengals.

LB Ahmad Brooks has been accused of punching a woman in the face last month. According to the victim, Brooks and a neighbor got into an argument. She attempted to play peacemaker and was about as successful as George Clooney's movie of the same name. She ended up unconscious with a black eye.

Brooks told the neighbor that he was going to “split his head open,” Rosich wrote in her statement.

That when she “nicely approached” Brooks and asked him to stop and “take it somewhere else,” according to the statement.

“He then pulled back his fist and struck (punched) me in the left eye,” Rosich wrote. “I then fell and blacked out.”

When Rosich gained consciousness, she grabbed her children, ran inside her home, called 911 and was taken to an area emergency room.
I imagine it went down something like this:

Brooks is scheduled to appear in court on June 6th to answer the assault charges. Keep in mind that he was dismissed from the UVA football team and cost the Bengals a draft pick when he was drafted last year.

It's rare to find such draft consistency from a team's manangement. We should salute the Bengals' vigor.
