More pro athlete drama

Check this out. Apparently Bengals WR Chris Henry has suffered life threatening injuries after being thrown from the bed of a pickup driven by his fiancee. They got in a fight and she tried to leave and he jumped into the bed of the pickup. After 6/10 of a mile he "fell" out it says, but I imagine the girl swerving side to side trying to shake him. This is some stupid shit.

He has a history of stupidity (i.e. trying to throw away all the hard work of his youth right when he's hit his payday).

Unfortunately, Henry has passed away due to the injuries he sustained.

wait, now I'm confused. So it was made up at first but now it's true. That's crazy.

I don't know what to believe anymore.

The press conferences with Marvin Lewis and Paul Brown speaking about his passing make me think that it's pretty real.

RIP Chris Henry.

That's horrible...I hope some sense can be made of this so that at least it serves to help someone learn something. I wonder if charges will be brought up on his fiance.
