Cut him!

And maybe this tells us why the Bears drafted Forte. Lots of people wondering about that around draft day, or thinking it was just to spur Benson along, but it may have been the precursor to cutting ties with Ced. And good riddance, too.

I hope so, just so the Bears aren't tempted to put Benson in the backfield. :-t

He was arrested in Texas. That good enough? :-b



:edit:
Here's Benson's version of events. Paints a different picture than the statement released by the police.

Benson said an officer asked him to board the police boat for an abbreviated sobriety test during which he recited the alphabet. Benson said he recited it without any mistakes. He said he was also asked to count forward and backward "at least 20 times." Benson said he kept asking the officers why they were doing this, while the police boat slowly drove away from where his own boat was parked.

Benson said that after the abbreviated sobriety test, the officer didn't charge him or say he'd failed the test, but that they wanted to take him in to land for more testing. "Why? I've passed every test," Benson said he asked the officer.

Benson said he was polite, even calling the officer "sir," and that he never cursed or yelled until the officer suddenly put down his flashlight and pepper sprayed him in the eyes.

With regard to the police claim that Benson refused to wear a life jacket, Benson said he was never offered one. He said police threw one over his head before departing the boat.

Benson said he was carried and dragged to a squad car once reaching land, but not because he was resisting officers. He said it was because his ankles and feet were kicked out from under him, and so he couldn't walk. Benson said he pleaded with police. "Please sir, let me just walk off the boat like a man," Benson said he told the officer.

Benson said he was repeatedly sprayed in the face with a water hose until he could no longer speak. Benson said he begged the officer to stop.

"I did nothing wrong; I didn't resist arrest, didn't curse and wasn't drunk," Benson told NBC 5.

But he's still a bum. :-b
The cake is a lie.

What is it with NFC North Players and boats? :-D

That thin ice Benson is on is cracking under the weight of his stupidity.

As to his version of events, somehow I doubt that the cops pepper-sprayed him no reason. I wonder if the Police Boat was equipped with a video camera? Regardless, I'm sure Goodell will be speaking to Bumson in short order.

Yeah, those stories are so different. Makes it hard not to believe the police's version, but hey, you never know I guess.

My guess, is that he tried to flee but feel down after about three yards or so.

Good ones, guys. As a Bears fan it pains me to see "my" RB get dissed like that, but the guy SO deserves it. He has been a total bust. :-t
