Chicago RB Benson arrested

Chicago Bears running back Cedric Benson was charged with failing a sobriety test while operating a 30-foot boat with 15 people aboard, then resisting arrest before being hit with pepper spray and dragged ashore by officers.

Benson was released from jail early Sunday on a $14,500 bond.

"When Benson did not pass the test, he presented himself as a threat to the officer and argued about whether or not he would be taken to land to have a follow-up field sobriety test performed on land and refused to put on a life jacket,” the authority said in a statement.

The officer had to use pepper spray to subdue Benson. He then refused to leave the officer’s boat and authorities had to drag him to a car to be taken to the Travis County jail, the authority said.

When thinking you can kick it in Texas and hoping they think you're a star goes wrong.....
