Bengals Assistant Charged with Drunken Driving
WILMINGTON, Ohio (AP) _ Tim Krumrie, the Cincinnati Bengals’ defensive line coach, was arrested on a drunken driving charge this week.
The State Highway Patrol arrested him at about 3:30 a.m. Monday in Richland Township, not far from the Bengals’ training camp at Wilmington College. The patrol charged Krumrie with drunken driving and driving left of center on the road.
Krumrie declined comment Thursday. Bengals general manager Mike Brown said he was aware of the charges and would not discuss them while they are pending in court.
Krumrie, 36, of Cincinnati, pleaded innocent Wednesday in Clinton County Municipal Court. Judge John Rudduck scheduled a pretrial hearing for Aug. 6.
A urine test was administered and the sample was sent to the State Highway Patrol’s laboratory in Columbus. The results are expected in two to three weeks, the patrol said.
Krumrie played for the Bengals as a nose tackle from 1983-94. He retired after the 1994 season and joined the Bengals’ coaching staff. He was promoted this season to defensive line coach.
