The Sports World Mourns The Lost of Chris Henry

In a another case of how sports imitates life, today the sports world mourns the lost of Bengals receiver Chris Henry, who died on Thursday after falling from a moving truck in Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday, according to police. Henry was a mere 26 years old.

News reports are citing to an apparent argument between Henry and with his fiancée at a home, when she drove away in a pickup truck. Henry jumped onto the bed of the truck, but fell out of the vehicle about a half-mile away and was later discovered by police.

A police spokesperson said homicide detectives were assigned to the case, but that no charges have been filed.

A seemingly perpetually troubled player, the hot-tempered Henry was arrested at various times for marijuana possession, gun possession and assault, earning him the epithet of “one-man crime wave” from a judge – and his ouster from the Cincinnati Bengals in 2008.

But after the Bengals’ owner gave Henry a second chance, the athlete seemed to have straightened out, staying out of trouble and focusing his off time on his fiancée and the three children they were raising.
