Maualuga Pleads Not Guilty to Bar Assault

Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga, charged with assault, didn’t appear in court Friday but his lawyer did and filed a written plea of not guilty according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Attorney Ed Perry, in a routine procedure, filed the written plea. The case has been assigned to Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Heather Russell.

Maualuga, 25, of Downtown, was accused of assault after bar employee Sammy Laham accused the 6-foot-3, 250-pound Bengal linebacker of punching him in the face inside the bar in the 600 block of Main Street in the early morning hours of Feb. 5.

The assault charge is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of 180 days in jail.
