According to USA Today, Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga has been charged with assault stemming from last night’s incident at a downtown Cincinnati bar. Police cited him today, and though it is only a misdemeanor count, the fact that Maualuga will be considered a repeat offender because of his 2010 DUI arrest means that he will most likely face a multiple-game suspension from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The fact that Maualuga is a free agent in 2013, and hasn’t shown that he can be counted on to be responsible off the field may lead the Bengals to searching for his replacement this offseason, likely through the draft.
