( Springdale ) - He's been vindicated. Former Cincinnati Bengal and 700WLW Show Contributor Artrell Hawkins has been found not guilty of domestic violence.

Hawkins was charged back in February for allegedly kicking in the door of the home where his wife and children live in Springdale. 

Hawkins says much of the media reporting on the case was inaccurate. He's glad that the truth has since come out, and that his name has been cleared.

Hawkins was on the air with Bill Cunningham (click here) and Eddie and Tracy on Thursday (click here).
