Bears Running Back Arrested For BUI, Resisting Arrest

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.
