An Austin police spokeswoman says Benson was arrested on Tuesday and booked into the Travis County jail where he posted bail and was released. An arrest affidavit says he punched an employee of a downtown bar after being kicked out for getting into an altercation with another patron.
In 2008, Benson was arrested twice in a month on alcohol charges. While in college at the University of Texas, he pleaded no contest to a charge of criminal trespassing for forcing his way into an apartment to find a television he said was stolen from him.

Oddsmakers from online sports book currently list the Bengals as 30/1 long shots to win the 2011 Super Bowl and 16/1 to win the AFC Conference Championship.
