Cedric Benson Arrested, Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson was arrested Sunday morning and charged with assault causing bodily injury to a family member in Travis County, Texas. Benson attorney, Sam Bassett, released a statement Sunday saying the incident involved a “roommate men before.”
“Mr. Benson has been charged with misdemeanor assault stemming from a dispute with a former male partner.
The two had difficulties arising from Mr. Benson asking the roommate men before leaving home a few days before this incident. The conflict became physical early in the morning and we intend to investigate thoroughly. There is insufficient information available at this time for further comment. Thank you. ”
The former University of Texas corridor, which will become free agent after the lockout, was arrested last June in Austin and charged with assault after a dispute over the Memorial Day weekend bar.
Sunday’s crime is a Class A misdemeanor. Benson published and 10,000 bonds and were released shortly before noon Sunday, according to the Associated Press.
“The team is aware of the incident,” Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan told The Cincinnati Enquirer. “However, like almost all situations of this nature would be (is) inadequate for the team to comment until the matter is resolved through normal legal channels.”
Benson, 28, led the Bengals in rushing with 1,111 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 starts last season.
Players have not been subject to discipline from the NFL during the lockout, but commissioner Roger Goodell said that players are still subject to the personal-conduct policy.
Benson met with Goodell in New York after his arrest last but was not suspended.
Benson’s latest arrest comes a week after ‘Pacman’ Jones Adam companion was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, minor in a bar in Cincinnati.
