WLWT - NBC reports

CINCINNATI -- Bengals Wide Receiver Chris Henry died Thursday after a domestic dispute in North Carolina.

Police said Henry and his fiancée, Loleini Tonga, who lives in the area, had been arguing in the 800 block of Peachtree Road when Tonga tried to drive away in a pickup.

Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup and the couple continued arguing as Tonga drove, police said.

Police said Henry fell out of the pickup at some point and landed in the roadway, causing life-threatening injuries.

Charlotte police announced that Henry died at 6:36 a.m. Thursday.

No charges have been filed, but homicide detectives were investigating the crash.

Read: Police Report

Henry had been placed on injured reserve since Nov. 9 with a dislocated forearm, ending his season.

The fifth-year player was cut from the Bengals in March 2008 after a string of arrests and other legal trouble, but the team re-signed him in August 2008.

The former third-round pick from West Virginia has caught 119 passes, including 21 touchdowns, for 1,826 yards during his career.

Henry had not been in any legal trouble since returning to the Bengals before the 2008 season.

Unreal. Goes to show just how fragile life can be. What an up and down life he lived. He was just starting to get his stuff together, too. RIP.

This may be a bit insensitive to say at this time, but I wonder how the team will respond this Sunday at the Chargers. I mean, they played their tails off when their D-coord lost his wife. I hope they play the game of their lives for many reasons!

What a season for the Bengals....

Sad.

Just a sad way to die. Letting his emotions control him (once again) and doing something stupid/crazy as jumping on the back of the truck.

I hope Marshall looks at Henry and decides that he won't follow the same path. We all get upset with or girl/boy-friend, but gotta keep a cool head and not let the drama get to you.

As a human, I feel for his family. As a football fan, I wonder how the Bengals will respond to this.

The NFL lost one of its criminals. cue the outpouring of "he was an amazing person, misunderstood, what a tragedy, etc" reality is, he was a F&ck up. And now he's dead.

I wonder if his girlfriend is gonna be charged with reckless endangerment or something like that.

I don't know what she was doing but she should have slowed way down, or stopped the truck, or something. From what little I know, it sounds like she "probably" drove too aggressively and consequently Henry was tossed out the back. Complete speculation on my part.

I definitely feel for his children.

Chris Henry's way of life was only going to end one way sadly and it has come to pass.

he was also only 26 and probably had the mentality of someone who was 18 due to the way you are thrust into the spotlight, given money, fame and women....

when i was 18 i was doing all sorts of dumb stuff that could have easily gotten me killed....and if somebody one a message board that didnt know me made light of it, I'd be sure to spend my afterlife ****ing up his life

He got into trouble in college before he had money.

Since his college days at West Virginia University, Henry has had a checkered off-field reputation. During his sophomore season, he was ejected from a game at Rutgers University due to multiple unsportsmanlike conduct penalties and was suspended for the season finale against the University of Pittsburgh. His former Mountaineers coach, Rich Rodriguez, stated that he was "an embarrassment to himself and the program" for his conduct.[16]

On December 15, 2005, Henry was pulled over in northern Kentucky for speeding. During a search, marijuana was found in his shoes. He was also driving without a valid driver's license or valid insurance.[17] He pleaded guilty and avoided a jail sentence.

One month later, on January 30, 2006 he was arrested in Orlando, Florida for multiple gun charges including concealment and aggravated assault with a firearm.[18] He was reported to have been wearing his #15 Bengals jersey at the time of his arrest. He pleaded guilty to this charge and avoided jail time.

On April 29, Henry allowed three underage females to consume alcohol at a hotel in Covington, Kentucky.[19] One of the three, an 18-year-old woman, accused Henry of sexually assaulting her; she later retracted her story and was charged with filing a false police report.[20] On January 25, 2007, Henry pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor violation of a city ordinance commonly referred to as a "keg law." He was sentenced to 90 days in jail, with all but two of those days being suspended.[19]

He was pulled over on Interstate 275 in Ohio on June 3 at 1:18 A.M. by Ohio Highway Patrol trooper Michael Shimko for surmised drunk driving. He voluntarily submitted to a breathalyzer test at 2:06 A.M. at the Milford Police Department and registered a .092 blood-alcohol level, .012 above the level permitted in the state of Ohio.[21]

hey, don't take me wrong, the guy had a past that was none-too-good...

however, I've been in my share of trouble too (no guns or anything) and normally it takes that one incident to turn the lights on. It seemed like the absence of football was that incident for Henry

but then this
