Rey Maualuga LB Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga, fresh off a 2010 DUI guilty plea that led to a 2 year probation, finds himself in some more drunk trouble, but thankfully this time not behind the wheel.
Maualuga was at a bar when the manager of the bar didn't take kindly to something that was said by the group he was with, and proceeded to tell them that they had to leave. Maualuga didn't take kindly to being told to leave the establishment, so he allegedly took "three or four steps" and punched the bar manager in the eye causing his nose to bleed. After that security settled the situation, and the manager walked away.
Already fined 2 gamechecks for his DUI incident, he could face more discipline from the league. He should be more worried about the fact that he was on probation at the time of the punch than anything. If you look above, you can see what it looks like to get punched by an NFL linebacker. Of course this NFL linebacker got out bench pressed at the Combine by his teammate kicker David Buehler so maybe it isn't the best example.
