Yes, I’m aware that Cedric Benson was on the Bengals’ roster last season. But everyone knows that in order to be an “official” Cincinnati Bengal, one must be arrested while on the roster. Well Cedric Benson, who is no stranger to the pokey, has finally crossed the threshold of being recognized as an “official” Cincinnati Bengal.
Former University of Texas football player Cedric Benson was arrested and charged with assault with injury early today after an incident last month at Annie’s West at 706 West Sixth Street, where officials said he punched a bar employee in the face.
The 27-year-old current running back for the Cincinnati Bengals had been involved in an altercation at the establishment and was being escorted out when he punched an employee, according to an arrest affidavit.
Congrats to you, Mr. Benson
