Bengals rookie Darius Hodge arrested for alleged assault from 2019

Zac Taylor is confident Joe Burrow’s throwing looks better every single day, but Mike Florio and Chris Simms assess to what degree Taylor is on the hot seat in 2021 and how much of that is riding on Burrow.

Bengals rookie pass rusher Darius Hodge had his Fourth of July interrupted by an arrest arising from an alleged incident from two years ago.

Via, Hodge was arrested on July 4 in Wake Forest, North Carolina. Hodge faces charges arising from allegedly hitting a man repeatedly in 2019.

Hodge played college football at Marshall. He wanted undrafted in April and signed with the Bengals.

Because the incident pre-dates the commencement of his NFL career, Hodge will face no scrutiny under the Personal Conduct Policy for the alleged assault. If, however, he becomes involved in any future incidents, the past allegations could be used to enhance the punishment imposed by the league.
