Former Bears running back Cedric Benson was arrested and charged with assault today in Austin in connection with an incident last month where officials say he punched a bar employee in the face, according to a report from the Austin American-Statesman.

The incident, which happened May 30, occurred as Benson was being escorted out after an altercation inside the bar, according to the arrest affidavit.

Benson was released after posting bail.

The former Texas Longhorn played in Chicago from 2005-2007, amassing 1,593 rushing yards during that time.

In 2008, he was arrested for drunken boating and resisting arrest in Texas.
