Cedric Benson Arrested

Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson was arrested and charged with assault early Tuesday Morning in Austin, Texas. The arrest comes from an incident that occurred on May 30th. Benson allegedly punched an employee of a bar in Austin. Cedric has posted bail and was release from Travis County Jail.

This is not Cedric Benson's first brush with the law. Two years ago he was cited for a DUI while operating a boat and shortly after for operating a car. He has not had any incidents since. Benson has currently been in contract negotiations with Cincinnati working on a long term deal. This will certainly play a role in those negotiations.
