Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry died early Thursday morning from injuries suffered when he “came out” of the back of a pickup during a domestic dispute in northern Charlotte, according to police.
Police said he died at 6:36 a.m. at Carolinas Medical Center where he had been taken early Wednesday afternoon. Police haven’t released a cause of death.
Officers were called to Oakdale Road near Interstate 85 just before noon Wednesday in reference to a â€œperson down.â€ When officers arrived, they found Henry in the road with life-threatening injuries.
Paramedics transported Henry to Carolinas Medical Center, where he was treated overnight, according to police.
Police said Henry was involved in a â€œdomestic situationâ€ with his fiancee on Peachtree Road. They wouldn’t identify her but said she got into a pickup and drove away from the home. As she was driving, police said, Henry jumped into the bed of the truck.
The domestic dispute continued between Henry and his fiancee and at some point, Henry â€œcame outâ€ of the back of the vehicle, police said. But they refused to elaborate on whether Henry fell or might have been forced out of the truck.
