The running back once dubbed "Cedric the Entertainer" by a former Sun-Times columnist is up to his old tricks.
The former Bears first-round pick was arrested early Tuesday morning for assault after allegedly punching a bar employee in Austin, Texas, on May 30, according to a report at Statesman.com
According to the report, that punch came after Benson had already been involved in a fight inside the bar.

Benson seems to self-destruct when the light is shining most directly upon him. The former No. 4 overall pick failed on and off the field after the Bears handed him the title of featured back heading into the 2007 season. After resurrecting his career with the Bengals, he was angling for another big contract.
