Former Bengals Running Backs Having a Rough Week

Former Bengals running backs are having a rough go of it this week. According to TMZ, the Bengals former running back Chris "two carry" Perry was arrested in Brooklyn New York after an altercation with a family member.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Perry -- a 2003 Heisman Trophy finalist -- was arrested in his grandmother's home after he allegedly socked his cousin in the face after an argument.

The arrest comes almost 6 years -- to the day -- from when the Michigan standout was selected in the first round of the NFL draft by the Cincinnati Bengals ... who ultimately cut the running back from the squad in 2009.

This comes a day after Corey Dillon was arrested on DUI charges in Malibu California.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office told WBZ it happened around 3:30 a.m. on Mulholland Drive. 

"Police observed a 2010, red, Chevrolet Camaro with paper plates driving slowly behind them. The deputies conducted a traffic stop, to verify the vehicle's registration. Deputies approached the car and contacted the driver, Corey Dillon, and one passenger, Cameron Cain," Lt. Rich Erickson said in a statement.

This comes after reports that Dillon's wife of ten years filed a petition for divorce earlier in the month.

If you can say anything, it's that former Bengals running backs are having a rough go of it this week.
