Bengals RB Cedric Benson Says That He Was Attacked
Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson says he was punched by a man who took exception to him posing for photographs with a group of women, reports NationalFootballPost.com’s Aaron Wilson, citing lawyer David Cornwell. Cornwell said in a statement, “Late last month at a nightclub, Cedric Benson was asked to take pictures with some female fans.
A man approached Cedric and objected to him posing for pictures with the women. Cedric explained that he had been asked to pose with the women and the man punched Cedric. An altercation followed and while Cedric was leaving the club, he was approached by another man aggressively. Believing this man was a friend of the man who had punched him; Cedric attempted to protect himself and continued out of the club. Immediately upon leaving the club, Cedric called the police.
He was interviewed by the police and left the area. Two weeks ago while he was in Cincinnati, Cedric was contacted by a detective investigating the incident in Texas. Apparently, the second man who approached Cedric is an employee of the night club and claimed that Cedric punched him.”
