After a productive rookie year, Henry has been unable to avoid off-field problems in the offseason. On June 3, Henry was arrested and charged with speeding and operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI), and registered a blood alcohol reading of .092 in a breathalyzer test. The legal limit in Ohio is .08. The speeding charge is a minor misdemeanor and the OVI charge is a first-degree misdemeanor. Henry faces a felony gun charge in Florida stemming from a Jan. 29 incident in which he allegedly possessed a firearm outside an Orlando nightclub. Henry is charged with possession of a concealed firearm in that incident, a third-degree felony in Florida, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. Two other charges from that incident, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and improper exhibition of a weapon, were dropped. In December, the former West Virginia University standout was arrested in Covington and charged with possession of marijuana. Henry pled guilty to the charge to avoid jail time, paid a fine of $250 and agreed to spend 28 days in a drug rehabilitation program, a stipulation which he has already completed. Each of the incidents was enough to subject Henry to NFL scrutiny and he could face league sanctions, including possible fines or a suspension, under terms of the personal conduct policy. A third-round choice in the 2005 draft, and the 83rd player selected overall, Henry appeared in 14 games as rookie, started five times, and had 31 receptions for 422 yards and six touchdowns.
