Another Day, Another Arrest: Cincinnati Bengals RB Cedric Benson Popped For Alleged Assault

- By Bossip Staff


Cincinnati Bengals RB Cedric Benson was arrested and accused of an assault in connection with a May 30 incident at an Austin, Texas, bar

The Austin American Statesman reported the arrest, based on an affadavit that details the alleged assault. Benson is accused of punching a bar employee after being asked to leave following a altercation. Employees separated Benson and another patron. The affadavit said Benson pushed an employee “in an attempt to continue the fight he was previously engaged in.” He then spit blood from his lip onto an employee, the affadavit said.

Bar staff asked Benson to leave several times. “Benson refused, and was escorted out of the bar,” the affidavit said. After leaving the bar, Benson hit an employee “with his right fist to the left side” of an employee’s face, the affadavit said. Benson posted bail and was released from custody. The Statesman reached him by phone, but he declined to comment until later.

These brothers have got to do better.

    Um…You better mean brothers as in p*nis-owners, and not brothers as in ‘brothas’.

    Let’s not perpetuate the myth that it’s only the black athletes acting a fool. Not with Ben Rothelisberger raping a different woman every year and that soccer played splashed all over the news this week with a illegitimate baby scandal…

    Last time I checked we were in America and you’re innocent until proven guilty.

    It’s a known fact that the “blacks” are not wanted in downtown Austin or on Lake Travis. “Keep Austin Weird” is short for “Keep Austin White”. If he started the fight, then face the music, but the Austin PD waits over a month to press charges? The new age Jack Johnson’s. Cedric, stay home!

    I commend the smart posters here who didn’t allow the Right-Wing loonies to draw them into a race fight – the Reta.r.d.e.d Limbaugh-ditto-heads keep wasting their time trying to destroy Obama – And they keep failing and failing and failing 🙂 🙂 :))
