Bears running back Cedric Benson was arrested and charged with drunken boating and resisting arrest. He also got pepper sprayed by police. I’m sure thats not how planned on spending his weekend.
Benson denies that he was drunk and he’s saying that the cops roughed him up for no reason and without explaination.
Benson refused a breath test but failed a sobriety test designed for boaters, according to the LCRA. The officer wanted to bring him ashore for more tests, but Benson refused.
Benson refused to put on a life jacket — a requirement on LCRA boats — and “presented himself as a threat to the officer and argued about whether or not he would be taken to land,” authorities said.
The officer arrested Benson, who kept arguing and “continued to present himself as a threat,” the LCRA said. The officer then pepper-sprayed him.
Benson tells a much different story: “Even after they pepper-sprayed me, I have no idea why they did that. I was cooperative. I asked them several times why they did that, and they didn’t give me an answer.”
I don’t know who to trust in this one. Then again, we’re taking about police in Texas. Nevermind. I believe Benson.
