Former Trojan Rey Maualuga Charged With Misdemeanor Assault

On Thursday, a Cincinnati bar manager accused Cincinnati Bengals and former USC Trojans linebacker Rey Maualuga of punching him in the face, "causing him to be injured." Cincinnati police have now charged Maualuga with misdemeanor assault for the alleged incident that occurred at a bar called Luxe.

It's the latest incident involving the trouble-prone former Trojan. Maualuga was arrested in January 2010, on charges of drunken driving and careless driving with a blood alcohol level almost double the legal limit. Maualuga pled guilty to the drunken driving charge. He was given a 7-day suspended jail sentence and two years probation.

Coincidentally, that probation period ended two days prior to this most-recent incident. At least one thing is working in Maualuga's favor.

The misdemeanor charge carries a maximum of 180 days in jail and Maualuga will be arraigned next Friday.
