(Best Syndication News) Wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, Chris Henry, has died today from injuries after falling from the back of a pickup truck on Wednesday. Authorities believe the fall may have been related to a domestic dispute.

Henry has suffered legal and professional setbacks recently, including arrests for driving while under the influence, possession of marijuana, assault, and criminal damaging. The 2005 NFL draft pick was also suspended for the first four games of the 2008 season. He later suffered a broken forearm while playing in a game against the Baltimore Ravens.

"It is with great sadness to learn Chris has passed away," his agent, Andy Simms said in a statement. "For those who knew Chris, he was nothing like his public perception. A loving and caring individual, he was thankful for what he had in life, and proud of what he had overcome."

Henry was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after he was found on a residential road. Authorities believe he jumped into the back of the pickup while his fiancé was driving away from the residence. The woman has not been identified as of yet. Police say at one point he came out of the “back of the vehicle”.

Although homicide investigators are looking into the case, no charges have been filed against his fiancé, Loleini Tonga. The couple has been raising three children.

Charlotte police announced that Henry had died at 6:36 a.m. ET. The exact cause of death is still unknown at this time. He was 26 years old.
