Bengals LB Maualuga to be fined, not suspended

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga will  not  face a  suspension, but will  be fined, for  pleading guilty to DUI
charges.

Maualuga was arrested  and  charged with drunken  driving and careless driving in  Covington, Kentucky on January 29. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported at the time  that  the 23-year-old  Maualuga allegedly  struck two  parked cars and a parking  meter  and registered  a blood-alcohol  level of  .157, well over the legal limit of .08.

On  Tuesday,  NFL.com reported that  a source  close to the situation revealed that Maualuga will be fined two game checks.

Maualuga  is expected to  make a full recovery from a broken ankle suffered in Week 16 against Kansas City  that  ended his rookie  season early.

A  second-round  selection in  the  2009  draft  out of  Southern  California, Maualuga  started  15 games  in his  rookie campaign  totaling 63 tackles, one sack and three forced fumbles.
