Report: Bengals’ Orson Charles Arrested For Endangerment

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Bengals fullback Orson Charles was arrested for endangerment. If you have no idea what that is, it’s basically choosing to engage in conduct which creates a substantial danger/physical injury to another, as the Enquirer puts it.

A month before the 2012 draft, he was arrested on a DUI charge and a little more than two years later, he was arrested again, in Madison County, Kentucky, for endangerment. He’s reportedly awaiting arraignment in Richmond, Kentucky.

Charles is fresh off a season in which he played 13 games while recording one catch for eight yards.

More from ESPN:

Charles’ arrest was the result of what police believe was a road rage incident involving a handgun. The incident report didn’t indicate if any shots were fired.

According to a copy of the incident report obtained Tuesday morning by, Charles was stopped by Richmond police on Interstate 75 after a complaint was called in by another driver. The other driver indicated to police that Charles brandished a firearm in his direction several times while driving down the highway sometime just before 8 p.m. Monday night. At some point, Charles allegedly cut off the other driver. When police arrived and did a search of Charles’ car, a Smith & Wesson semiautomatic handgun was found in a purse.
