The Cincinnati media is covering Rey Maualuga’s DUI like Lee Harvey Oswald just surfaced in the Ohio River. That’s unfortunate for the Cincinnati Bengals linebacker and his 18-year-old high school acquaintance Chelsea Fauver, who was identified by police as a passenger in the 2003 Pontiac Sunfire Maualuga was driving:

Another girl, a minor, was also identified as an occupant.
I don’t think it’s unreasonable to surmise that Maualuga was driving a car owned by one of the two passengers, since neither was of drinking age.
Also unfortunate is that this wasn’t Maualuga’s first public altercation involving alcohol.
