Chris Henry had a very troubled history in the NFL. He had been 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.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had suspended Chris from the NFL the same year the Pac-Man Jones was suspended,but was reinstated eventually, after showing a great change in his personal life, which was attributed to his involvement with his fiancée Loleini Tonga, and her children.

Chris Henry had been in Charlotte, North Carolina with his fiancée, planning their wedding.He had sustained a season ending injury, and was on injured reserve.
