Chris Henry, the talented but troubled Cincinnati Bengals player who was arrested 5 times in 14 months, has died of head inuries suffered when he tumbled out of the back of a pickup truck in Cincinatti in what police are calling a domestic dispute between the wide receiver and his fiancee.
Henry died at 6:36 a.m. this morning after fighting for his life for 24 hours. He was 26.
Away from the team because of a broken forearm, Henry was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after being found on a residential road.
Police say a dispute began at a home about a half-mile away, and Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup truck as his fiancee was driving away from the residence.
Police said at some point when she was driving, Henry "came out of the back of the vehicle."
