BOONE COUNTY - The Florence home of former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry is in foreclosure and will be sold at public auction next week.
Chase Home Finance LLC is owed nearly $360,000 on the house, according to a notice of sale published Thursday in the Boone County Recorder.
Henry, who turns 25 years old today, bought the house in September 2005, the same month he made his NFL debut with the Bengals.
The team released him April 3 after a string of legal troubles and arrests that led to two suspensions from the team.
He is under house arrest at his residence in downtown Cincinnati following his arrest for allegedly assaulting an 18-year-old man at a Clifton apartment complex March 31.
Henry's house is valued at $365,000, which is what he paid for it, according to Boone County property records.
The house is on Appomattox Drive in the Plantation Pointe subdivision in Florence. It appeared to be vacant Friday morning.
A representative for Henry said he had no comment on the matter Friday afternoon.
The auction will be 9 a.m. Thursday on the front steps of the Boone County Justice Center in Burlington.
