Cedric Benson is the latest NFL player to have a run in with the law. On Tuesday the Bengals running back was arrested with misdemeanor assault for punching a bar employee in the face.
“Though we adamantly dispute that Cedric committed a crime, Cedric will continue to cooperate with law enforcement, the Bengals and the NFL in their investigation of these events,” Benson’s attorney David Cornwell said.
Roger Goodell has to be super pissed right about now. He is the strictest commissioner in all of sports, yet his league has more thugs and more athletes getting in trouble with the law than any other sport.
Benson will likely receive a 4-game suspension.
