Bengals’ Nicholson is arrested again
Linebacker A.J. Nicholson was arrested on a domestic violence charge, the first arrest of a Cincinnati Bengals player since Commissioner Roger Goodell cracked down on misconduct last month.
Police in Taylor Mill, Ky., arrested Nicholson after a woman called 911 to say she had been assaulted by him. He was charged with fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor.
Nicholson already was one of nine Bengals arrested during a nine-month span, turning the team into a prime example of player misconduct.
