Benson arrested for boating while intoxicated and resisting arrest

AUSTIN (AP) -- Chicago Bears running back Cedric Benson faces criminal charges of boating while intoxicated and resisting arrest.

Authorities say Benson was operating a 30-foot boat carrying about 15 passengers on Lake Travis on Saturday when he was stopped, then failed a field sobriety test. Officials say an officer had to use pepper spray to subdue Benson.

Travis County Sheriff's Department spokesman Roger Wade says Benson was freed from jail on a $14,500 bond Sunday morning.

The 25-year-old Benson was the Bears' first-round pick in 2005 after starring at the University of Texas.

Bears' Benson charged with boating while intoxicated, resisting arrest

AUSTIN, Texas -- Chicago Bears running back Cedric Benson failed a sobriety test while operating a 30-foot boat, then resisted arrest before being hit with pepper spray and dragged ashore by officers.

Benson faces charges of boating while intoxicated and resisting arrest after the incident Saturday night on Lake Travis, Travis County Sheriff's Department spokesman Roger Wade said.

Both charges are misdemeanors.

Benson was released from jail early Sunday on a $14,500 bond. A call to Benson's agent was not immediately returned.

Benson was operating the boat with 15 passengers aboard when he was stopped by a Lower Colorado River Authority officer for a random safety inspection. He failed a field sobriety test on the officer's boat and was uncooperative when the officer tried to take him ashore, the authority said.

"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.

Benson has had legal problems before.

He was sentenced to eight days in jail in 2003 for a misdemeanor trespassing charge after forcing his way into an apartment to look for a reported stolen TV. In 2002, misdemeanor drug and alcohol charges against him were dropped.

Benson rushed for more than 5,500 yards and 64 touchdowns at the University of Texas, going for 1,000 yards in four straight seasons.

The 25-year-old has done little since the Bears took him with the fourth pick of the 2005 draft.

As a rookie he couldn't beat out Thomas Jones and rushed for 272 yards in nine games. He was more effective the next season while sharing time with Jones, going for six touchdowns and 647 yards.

Last year, Benson took over as the featured back after Jones was traded away. He rushed for 674 yards, four touchdowns and 3.4 yards a carry before going on injured reserve in November.

In three years with the Bears, Benson has rushed for 1,593 yards and 10 touchdowns, averaging 3.8 yards a carry. He's also missed 13 games.

It is a huge issue down here and they run ads on tv all the time warning you about the dangers of boating while intoxicated.

"Be on" is not the same as "operate" nor is it the same as "operate with 15 passengers aboard."

Well, this may well cement his ass being kicked out the door up here. The Bears drafted a RB in the second round and I think his time was running out anyway.

Benson is not well liked up here.

We have a family home in the Ozarks and every summer we'd boat. For a long time, it was the norm to be boating and drinking. But, the past several years, they've been clamping down hard on drinking while boating.

I've seen some pretty horrific boating accidents on the lake during those years.

One time, while I was out on our boat, taking friends water-skiing, one of my friends went down and as I turned the boat around to get him, we watched in horror as this boat damn near ran him over. He was waving his ski out of the water, but the boat driver and several passengers still didn't see him. I thought he was dead, but somehow he managed to miss the boat. As soon as we got him out of the water, we chased after the boat and when I caught up with them- it was plainly obvious these guys were hammered. I was furious.

We had a basic rule in our family. If you wanted to drive the boat- you couldn't drink. Everyone else though- you could drink all you want.

Ive only been on a boat a few times(when I was really young), I just figured it was normal to drink a few while fishing on your boat

Drinking and driving a boat don't mix. I don't even hit the lake midday, only mornings and evenings. Of course, I am also looking for smooth water to wakeboard.
