NFL Rookie and controversial bad boy figure has died:
Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry has died, one day after suffering serious injuries upon falling out of the back of a pickup truck in what authorities describe as a domestic dispute with his fiancee.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Henry died at 6:36 a.m. Thursday. Henry was 26.
Henry was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after being found on a residential road “apparently suffering life-threatening injuries,” according to police. More here
According to sources including the Huffington Post, Chris and the mother of his three kids, Loleini Tonga (his fiancée) were in the midst of a domestic dispute when she drove off and he attempted to jump into the pick up truck she was driving. When you picture the whole scene, it makes you cringe just a bit….
No charges have been filed at this time against the young woman. More than likely, this is a tragic accident that occurred due to the dark passions of two people who can’t communicate without going high octave. Chris was young and sometimes young people don’t know that they are mortal. They think they can do anything, including jump into the back of a pick up truck as it is driving away. And sometimes, it works. But sometimes, it has tragic consequences that should be foreseeable, but often is not because young folks think they are invincible.
Here’s to less domestic disputes in the world.
RIP Chris Henry.
