Thumbs down Not just another drunk boater mind you.....

NEWPORT, Ky. -- Bengals guard Eric Steinbach was arrested and charged with boating under the influence on the Ohio River, becoming the fifth Cincinnati player in three months accused of breaking the law.

Now On The Docket ...

Eric Steinbach's boating misadventure on Saturday brings to six the number of Bengals players who have run into off-the-field troubles since December:
Player Pos. Transgression(s)
Eric Steinbach G Boating under the influence
Chris Henry WR x-Total of five
Frostee Rucker DE Spousal battery
A.J. Nicholson LB Burglary, grand theft
Matthias Askew DT Resisting arrest
Odell Thurman LB League substance abuse policy violation
x-unlawful transaction with a minor (three counts, will stand trial in September), speeding, operating a vehicle under the influence, felony possession of a concealed firearm, possession of marijuana

A Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources officer stopped Steinbach because he was violating an idle-only zone Saturday night, agency spokesman Mark Marraccini said.

Steinbach failed a series of field sobriety tests, Marraccini said.

The player was released from the Campbell County jail in Newport after posting bond and was to appear in court Tuesday, jail and court records show.

The Bengals had the day off Sunday, their first free time since they opened training camp in Georgetown, Ky. Steinbach practiced with the team Monday and declined comment about the case.

Steinbach was a first alternate for the Pro Bowl last season, when he started all 16 regular-season games and a playoff loss to Pittsburgh. He was part of a line that allowed only 21 sacks, a club record.

The Bengals generally do not comment on players' arrests.

The team has been on the defensive over the recent player arrests and a suspension. Receiver Chris Henry leads the list, with four arrests since December. He is to go on trial later this month in Orlando, Fla., on a gun charge.

The Bengals drafted defensive end Frostee Rucker and linebacker A.J. Nicholson in April despite their problems in college. Both were arrested before they began negotiating contracts -- Rucker for spousal battery, Nicholson for burglary and grand theft.

Cincinnati police used a stun gun on third-year defensive tackle Matthias Askew last month and charged him with resisting arrest.

Middle linebacker Odell Thurman is suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Man, these guys just don't get it!
Everything is for sale @ a certain $$
