As a Bengals fan, you are used to the other shoe dropping. After an offseason that was arguably the best the team has had in two decades, you had to be waiting for it.
It came out today that Cedric Benson was charged with misdemeanor assualt following a May 30th altercation in which he punched someone in the face at…guess…a bar.
Benson has not released any comments on the matter, leaving that to his lawyer, Sam Bassett.
Mr. Benson has always been willing to cooperate with the Austin Police Department to tell his version of what happened so long as he could have a lawyer present. The Austin Police Department decided to go forward with obtaining a warrant without obtaining Mr. Benson’s side of the story.”
So much for the summer of love. No word yet as to whether or not this could cause a league suspension for Commissioner Goodell.
