Bears’ Benson Vows To Fight Charges

Cedric Benson will fight charges of boating while intoxicated and resisting arrest stemming from a Saturday night incident in Texas.  Officials near Austin arrested Benson on Lake Travis after a random safety inspection.  Lower Colorado River Authority officials pepper-sprayed Benson after claiming he failed a sobriety test on a boat.  But Benson told the “Chicago Tribune” he did not resist authorities, and was not drunk at the time.  Benson says an officer sprayed him, even though he was not touching the officer or making any threats.  Benson also claims the officers held a water hose over his face after handcuffing him.  Benson is free on bond.  It’s not his first brush with the law — Benson’s previous arrests came in Midland, Texas in 2002 for marijuana possession and in Austin the following year for criminal trespassing.
