Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga was arrested for driving drunk early Friday morning in Kentucky. According to police reports, Maualuga struck two parked cars and a parking meter before being taken into police custody.
23-year-old Rey Maualuga was arrested around Friday after causing minor damage to two parked cars while driving erratically in northern Kentucky. KYPost.com reports Maualuga was arraigned on charges of drunken and careless driving and released on his own recognizance.
Maualuga could face an NFL fine of up to $50,000 under the league’s substance abuse policy, according to Bengals.com. The Bengals organization has yet to comment on the incident.
Oddly enough, this was the same county where WWE wrestling stars Chris Jericho and Greg (Hurricane) Helms were arrested Wednesday for a drunken display at a gas station.
