Cedric Benson Shows His Stripes

Jun 29, 2010


Cedric Benson is in trouble again. It’s been a fairly quiet offseason for the Cincinnati Bengals, but it’s not surprising that one of their players got in trouble.


It’s been a couple of years since Benson last got in trouble, which led to his dismissal in Chicago. Fortunately for Benson, Cincinnati almost welcomes this sort of behavior with open arms.


According to the Austin American Statesmen, Benson was arrested this morning and charged with assault after punching an employee of Annie’s West bar on May 30th. According to the report he struck the employee after being refused re-entry after he was thrown out of the bar. He also spit blood at an employee. Classy.


He almost certainly will see a suspension for this incident given his prior history. He was a good bet for RB1 status, but that is in question now. As Forrest Gump so eloquently said, “stupid is as stupid does”.
