Cedric Benson Charged With Assault
((HT: KXAN-TV Austin))
Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson ((pictured, thanks Travis County PD)) was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault from a May 30th incident at an Austin, Texas bar named "Annie's West."
An Austin police spokeswoman says Benson was arrested and booked into the Travis County ((TX)) jail where he posted a $5,000 bond and was released. The arrest affidavit says he punched an employee ((a bartender)) after being kicked out for getting into an altercation with another patron just before 2AM on May 30.
And what soes the HQ say about events after 2AM...???
Benson, allegedly, was asked outside on multiple times before the bartender and another employee took Benson outside. That was when the bartender was struck in the face. Annie's West apparently also taped the incident...
Benson's attorney said in a statement that his client had been completely cooperative and hasn't been able to give APD his side of the story.
All the above story does is give us the excuse to show the video below...
