Benson to fight charges of intoxication, resisting arrest
Associated Press
Chicago Bears running back Cedric Benson believes officers used excessive force against him and plans to fight charges he operated a boat while intoxicated and resisted arrest on a Texas lake over the weekend.

Benson's production sunk long before his boat trip
Austin American-Statesman
Cedric Benson is the most unpopular athlete in Chicago today, and it isn't because his pepper-sprayed mug was plastered across the front page of every major sports section and shown on every highlight show in America during the last two days. It isn't because he's the latest Chicago Bear to run into off-the-field trouble. It isn't because he needed to fill Tank Johnson's slot on the police blotter. And he's not trying to top Oprah in the TV ratings. There's a much simpler explanation, and it doesn't involve an arrest for boating while intoxicated and resisting arrest on a 30-foot party boat, during a routine safety check by a Lower Colorado River Authority officer. It involves football. Benson hasn't delivered.
