When I hear about football players getting arrested for stupid fights, I always hope that they learn their lesson after the first time. I truly do. Cedric Benson is helping critics’ arguments that some players are just always going to be in trouble.
Benson was arrested for an assault (surprise, outside of a bar) that happened last month. NBC Sports:
Cedric Benson has been arrested and charged with assault for an altercation at a bar on May 30, according to the Austin American-Statesman.
Officials say that Benson got into a fight around 1:50 a.m. with an unknown person inside a bar in Austin, Texas. He allegedly was being escorted out of the bar when he punched a bar employee in the face and then the affidavit says Benson spit blood from his injured lip at an employee.
Obviously, don’t put Benson anywhere near your fantasy team, and it’ll be interesting to see how the Bengals deal with this, considering their running backs aren’t very good and they didn’t draft any this year.
