Hey ... I got a Bengals story that has nothing to do with Chad Johnson or Chris Henry. But it does involve assault!
Bengals linebacker Ahmad Brooks has been accused of punching a woman in the eye and sending her to the hospital:
Destiny Rosich gave a sworn statement Wednesday that Brooks was arguing outside her neighbor's home on April 9 in the 7600 block of Banklick Street. She said her children were outside playing and began to cry because Brooks and the neighbor were about to start a fistfight.
Brooks told the neighbor that he was going to "split his head open," Rosich wrote in her statement.
That when she "nicely approached" Brooks and asked him to stop and "take it somewhere else," according to the statement.
"He then pulled back his fist and struck (punched) me in the left eye," Rosich wrote. "I then fell and blacked out."
When Rosich gained consciousness, she grabbed her children, ran inside her home, called 911 and was taken to an area emergency room.
Police are considering it a fourth degree assault and limited their involvement to explaining to Rosich how to file a criminal summons. Brooks has been summoned to a court hearing on June 6th to answer to the charge.
Brooks has played two years with the Bengals after they selected him in the 2006 Supplemental Draft.
