FLORENCE, Ky. -- Police recovered a stolen vehicle Wednesday evening from the home of Chris Henry.
An officer spotted a car he did not recognize parked in the Cincinnati Bengalís driveway, ran the license plates and discovered the car had been reported stolen by a rental-car company.
Henry told investigators that his own vehicle had been stolen in Louisiana, where he is from originally, and he rented a car from Hertz.
The Bengals' wide receiver said he thought his insurance company was paying for the car, so he had not made any payment for the vehicle.
Authorities said Hertz had not received payment from Henry or his insurance company, and the car was reported stolen.
Henry is serving an eight-game NFL suspension following several arrests since he joined the team in 2005.
Police said they did not know whether Henry would face charges related to the stolen car.
Henry was arrested four times in a 14-month span, resulting in two benchings by Lewis and a two-game league suspension.
He was one of nine Bengals arrested in a nine-month period.
