The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is A.J. Nicholson. He gets the award for the following.
CINCINNATI - Linebacker A.J. Nicholson was arrested on a domestic violence charge Friday, the first arrest of a Cincinnati Bengals player since NFL commissioner Roger Goodell cracked down on misconduct last month.This player is obviously an animal. I've said it before, the ONLY acceptable reason for a man to strike a woman is in self defense for themselves or their family and loved ones. Neither applies in AJ Nicholoson's case and that makes him today's Knucklehead of the day.
Police in nearby Taylor Mill, Ky., arrested Nicholson after a woman called 911 on Friday afternoon to say she had been assaulted by the second-year player, said police chief Steve Knauf. Nicholson was charged with fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor.
Last March, Nicholson pleaded no contest to burglary and grand theft in Tallahassee, Fla., and was sentenced to two months in a work program. He had been charged with stealing electronic equipment and other items from the apartment of a former Florida State teammate.
Nicholson was also placed on two years' probation, which could be jeopardized by his latest arrest.
Knauf said a woman called police to Nicholson's apartment at 3:10 p.m. Friday, saying she had been hit in the face. The officer who responded saw that the woman had an injury by her eye, Knauf said.
Nicholson wasn't at the apartment, but later showed up at the police station and was arrested, the chief said. He faces up to 12 months in jail and a $500 fine if convicted.
He was jailed in the Kenton County (Ky.) Detention Center following his arrest and released late Friday on $5,000 bond, jail personnel said.
