Report: Leon Hall charged with DUI

Do you ever have those moments where you slap yourself in the head for making a point, only to have it countered and punched right back in your face? For the past day, we've defended the Bengals and how the national media unfairly characterizes the Bengals as the official terrorist-sponsoring team in the NFL.

Then the Enquirer's Barrett Brunsman (and Leon Hall) totally makes me look like an idiot.

Bengals cornerback Leon Hall is to be arraigned in Clermont County Municipal Court on Friday on charges that include driving under the influence of alcohol.

Hall, 24, also was cited for driving left of center after being pulled over at 3:11 a.m. on April 5 on Ohio 125 in Union Township by Trooper N.J. Pabin of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Bengals spokesman, Jack Brennan said “We were aware of the charge. Anybody can get charged with anything. We don’t feel it’s appropriate to comment on a legal matter that’s not resolved.”

Hall told the Ohio State Highway Patrol that his wife had called him, asking to come home, saying that she was having a baby. The Enquirer didn't follow up on that. So we're not sure if it was lame-ass excuse or if he was super-serial.

If you guys want to point and laugh at me, I'll take it. This time.
