Hyderabad, India (PressExposure) July 18, 2011 -- NFL Picks News: Running back Cedric Benson was released from jail Sunday after being arrested on an assault charge, the second consecutive year; he had trouble in his home country.
Benson was a free agent after leading Cincinnati Bengals proud for the last three seasons. He hoped to keep the Bengals, and has worked for players in Cincinnati during the block of the NFL.
Spokesman for the Travis County Sheriff Roger Wade says Benson was arrested in downtown Austin on one count of misdemeanor assault with bodily injury family violence. Benson lawyer Sat Bassett said in a statement followed the arrest of "conflict" between Benson and a former male roommate.
Wade said Benson filed a $ 10,000 bond and was released just before 2:00
Bassett believes that "domestic violence" aspect of the charge erroneous "because the alleged victim is no longer male members of households and Mr. Benson was not a household member in the last days." Condemnation of the assault to domestic violence would draw a sentence more severe than simple assault.
The corridor will be an unrestricted free agent when the lockout ends. Teams are not allowed to have contact with players before.
"In cases like this, we do not believe it is appropriate to comment until there is a kind of legal solution," Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said.
Last summer, Benson was arrested over an alleged brawl in a bar in Austin. The police charged with assault for allegedly punching offense used a bar in the face. Benson has denied the accusation and the case is pending.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell the met with Benson about the arrest last year and decided not to punish him. Benson could face a suspension for his latest arrest, players and the league to reach a collective bargaining agreement, which hides its future in the NFL.
Benson was Chicago's first-round pick from the University of Texas in 2005. I had two alcohol-related arrests with the Bears, who released him in 2008. Signed as free agent with the Bengals and was at the peak of each film in the last three years - in 2008 747 meters, 1251 meters in 2009 and 1111 meters in 2010.
The back 28 years today was disappointed last season when the Bengals were 4.12 after moving away from performance-based crimes that earned them the AFC North title in 2009. After the Bengals offensive coordinator changed, Benson has lobbied to stay in Cincinnati.
It was the second player the Bengals arrested last week. Rear corner Adam "Pacman" Jones was arrested last week in Cincinnati on charges of disorderly conduct offense, if the arrest drunk and resisting. Legal documents, said Jones shouted insults at a bar downtown and tried to come off as officers arrested him. Jones has denied the allegations.
