According to the report, Henderson was pulled over by campus police Sunday and found to have a blood-alcohol level of greater than 0.02, which is the legal limit for persons under the age of 21. Henderson, only a sophomore, is 20. He pleaded not guilty on Monday.Henderson has been a little up and down this season, but is playing 12 minutes per game. He has averaged 2.8 points and 2.2 rebounds per game, and is also a good defender with his solid athleticism and quickness.
While he did plead not guilty, it seems that Wayne Tinkle didn't waste any time in suspending him. Good on them for a quick suspension... as I learned in my college criminal justice classes, one of the best deterrents is a efficient penalty. Here's thinking that any current or future Montana players will think twice about getting into a car after drinking at all, which is a good thing.
Hopefully this will wind up being a small blip in a solid career for Henderson.
EDIT: He is suspended for one game, according to The Missoulian.
