Cedric Benson Will Spend His Bye-Week in Jail

So, Cedric Benson of the Cincinnati Bengals will be spending his bye-week in jail. Just awesome. Par for the course on the Bengals, right? Those guys. Just a bunch of hooligans.  Here’s why he’ll be in jail according to the Statesman:

According to an arrest affidavit, Benson… got into a fight with an unknown person at the bar at about 1:50 a.m. on May 30, 2010, which was a Sunday morning. The affidavit said Benson suffered a bloody lip in the fight and shoved a bar manager because he wanted to continue the scuffle.

After Benson was “verbally aggressive” with bar staff, he was escorted out, the affidavit said.

Outside the bar, Benson told a bystander “all these white boys are ganging up on me and kicking me out,” the affidavit said.

According to an affidavit, bar employee Bryan White then told Benson: “I’m going to take time out of my busy job to kick you out?”

Benson then punched White in the face, the affidavit said.

Wait a sec…you’re telling me the that one of the “white boys ganging up” on Benson was named White? That’s just adding insult to injury. I’d have punched him too.
