Benson Busted in Texas…again

Benson's 2008 arrest photo.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson, 28, in trouble again. This time he was arrested and charged with assault causing bodily injury—a Class A misdemeanor—to a family member early Sunday morning in Central Texas.

Benson's latest legal trouble comes a little over a year after the cops slapped the cuffs on him for his involvement in an alleged bar fight in Texas. Fortunately for Benson, the previous arrest didn't result in disciplinary action from the NFL. We're not sure if he'll get off that easy again.

If you'll remember, the Chicago Bears dropped Benson in 2008 after he got busted on a pair of alcohol-related arrests, also in Texas.

Benson will be a free agent once a new collective bargaining agreement is in place. We're sure Commissioner Roger Goodell is already looking for Benson's phone number.
