Surprise: Another Cincinnati Bengals Player Arrested

Deltha O’Neal, cornerback for the NFL Cincinnati Bengals, was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with Ohio DUI. O’Neal was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint around 12:30 am and police noticed the smell of alcohol. According to State Highway Patrol, a breathalyzer test revealed a blood alcohol content of 0.10, above the legal limit of 0.08.

O’Neal is the eighth player from the Bengals squad to be arrested this year, and the second in a just a week. Reggie McNeal was recently arrested in Houston and charged with resisting arrest.

O’Neal was designated as inactive by the team following the DUI arrest. He had missed the last three games due to a shoulder injury, though he was not on the team’s injury report Friday and was expected to play Sunday in a game against the Oakland Raiders. The seven-year veteran led the league interceptions last year and was selected for the AFC Pro Bowl team.

O’Neal is to appear in Clermont County, Ohio Municipal Court this week.
