According to ESPN, Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga will check into the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., later this month for at least 30 days following his DUI conviction.
Maualuga, who may be better known for playing football at USC, plead guilty to drunken driving in Kentucky on February 2, 2010. Maualuga was arrested after police said he hit a parking meter and two parked cars.
Maualuga has had a troubled past with alcohol. As a freshman at USC in 2005, Maualuga was arrested for a misdemeanor battery in an alcohol-related incident. The charges were dismissed after he participated in a diversion program that included Alcoholics Anonymous.
