Rey Maualuga DUICincinnati Bengals’ linebacker Rey Maualuga was convicted of drunk driving earlier this year. His conviction stemmed from a raucous January night in which he crashed into two parked cars while under the influence of alcohol. For his actions he recieved a 7 day suspended jail sentence, a 90 day drivers license suspension and some probation conditions.

It should be noted that NFL players also can receive a penalty from the NFL itself through the commissioner’s office. Maualuga dodged a bullet and so did the Bengals organization. Rodger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner, did not order a game suspension. Instead Maualuga will give up two gameday paychecks.
