Former Bengals LB Thurman pleads not guilty in assault case
Thurman, 25, was arraigned in Erie County yesterday on a count of felonious assault.
Police say he punched a man from the Cleveland area in the face on May 27 after they argued about a place in line at Kalahari Waterpark Resort.
Thurman remains free on $20,000 bond. He has a pretrial hearing scheduled for Aug. 25.
In June, Thurman was suspended indefinitely by the NFL after violating the league's substance abuse policy.
