LB Nicholson Arrested, Released on Bond

Posted May 19, 2007

Just four months after the last time a Bengal player had been arrested, second-year reserve linebacker A.J. Nicholson was taken into custody Friday evening on domestic violence charges. Read the full story for more details.

It didn't take long for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's new player conduct policies to come into play.

Late Friday afternoon, authorities in northern Kentucky responded to a 911 call made by a woman claiming to have been assaulted by Bengals linebacker A.J. Nicholson.

According to reports, the woman had sustained an injury to her face, around her eye. Not present at his residence at the time of response, Nicholson later reported to the local police station where he was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault.

It was last March that Nicholson pleaded no contest to burglary and grand theft charges stemming from an incident involving former teammates of his at Florida State University.

It remains to be seen what repercussions will be felt by both Nicholson, who has been on probation, and the Bengals franchise, which is now subject to punishment under Goodell's new conduct policy, instituted last month.
