PRO FOOTBALL / DAILY REPORT : RAMS : Prosecutors Move to Block Henley
Federal prosecutors have asked a federal judge to block Ram cornerback Darryl Henley’s attempts to play ball out of town, arguing that the player is a proven flight risk.
In a brief filed Friday, prosecutors said Henley, who recently signed a one-year, $350,000 contract with the Rams, took measures to elude arrest for five weeks after his indictment on drug charges last October and is “fully capable of going into hiding” again.
The player is accused of running a cross-country cocaine trafficking network out of his Brea home, using a former Ram cheerleader as a courier.
Henley is free on $200,000 bail while awaiting his Jan. 10 trial, but under the conditions of his bail, he may not travel beyond the federal court’s Central District jurisdiction, which includes seven Southern California counties.
