excerpt:

Brooks accused of punching woman

BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A woman has accused Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Ahmad Brooks of punching her in the face last month.

Brooks was ordered to appear June 6 in Boone District Court on a complaint filed this week by Destiny Rosich. Based on the complaint, prosecutors charged Brooks with fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor that carries up to a year in prison.

Rosich's complaint said Brooks got into a loud disagreement with one of her neighbors in nearby Florence on April 9. When she tried to intervene, Brooks punched her in the left eye, temporarily knocking her unconscious, the complaint said.

Police were called to the scene but didn't witness the alleged altercation. Rosich was told she could file a complaint.

A Bengals spokesman said the team had no comment because of the preliminary nature of the case.

Brooks missed most of last season with torn groin muscles. The Bengals took him in the 2006 supplemental draft, shortly before linebacker Odell Thurman began serving an NFL suspension that would last for two seasons.

Brooks played three seasons at Virginia before being kicked off the team.

I'm thinking it's about time some scientists do a study on the Bengal Phenomenon & get to the bottom of this.

It appears like not a few bad apples, but the whole tree was bad...

Can Roger Goodell suspend the entire Bengals organization? The front office keeps picking up bad apples, and then is surprised when they get suspended for assault, or DUI, or both. I know Brooks hasn't been suspended yet. Goodell likes sending messages, maybe he can send another? If you have too many suspensions at one time or in a period of time, and you don't appear to do anything to fix it, then the entire team gets punished.

I am pretty sure Goodell threatened to fine the team if they didn't get their crap together.

And just think: Rich Franklin wears Bengals shorts, designed by TapOut, whenever he fights (after seeing that, I've gotta run out and buy some Eagles TapOut shorts).
