Days Before Bengals Tryout, Undrafted FA Charged With Tampering With Evidence In Murder Case

Washington v Arizona State

You want to guarantee yourself a trip out of the NFL before it even starts? Do something incredibly stupid like former ASU LB Antonio Longino is accused of doing just days before he was scheduled to tryout for the Cincinnati Bengals.

On Wednesday, Longino was arrested, accused of tampering with evidence in a homicide investigation.

Here are the details:

“Local football player Antonio Longino, who was days away from a tryout with the Cincinnati Bengals, was arrested by the Cleveland Heights police department and charged with tampering with evidence in a homicide investigation.
There was a vehicle with two bullet holes towed from Longino’s aunt’s house Wednesday afternoon. A search warrant was also served and several bags of evidence were taken from the home.
All of this is part of an investigation into a homicide that occurred at the Sunny Spot Lounge in Cleveland Heights early Tuesday morning.
A 24-year-old Cleveland man was shot and died after police found him in a vehicle in a parking lot at 2212 Noble Road, according to Cleveland Heights police. Officers say they had responded to a report of shots fired at around 2:28 a.m. when they found Dejon D. Forbes with an apparent gunshot wound. Forbes was transported to University Hospital, but he died shortly afterward.”
Longino has been released on $100K bail. Don’t expect any NFL teams to come calling anytime soon.
