After spending two nights in jail, Chris Henry is now home. The now former Cincinnati Bengal posted bond after his court appearance yesterday but had to wait until business hours began today to be fitted with an ankle monitoring system.
Police want to make sure Henry does not go near the University of Cincinnati student he is accused of punching. Henry pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges of assault and criminal damaging.
Police say Henry smashed Gregory Meyer's car window with a bottle, then punched the 18-year-old in the head.
Investigators say Meyer did not know the name of the person who allegedly attacked him, but identified Henry from two different lineups.
Henry was taken from the jail to a special office to be fitted with the bracelet just before 10. He was then released from custody.
