At least that's how the Bears positioned it a few years ago when they took Ced with the number 4 pick overall. Mr. Benson is claiming that he wasn't drunk and the cops mistreated him (allegedly).
I have no idea what happened or didn't happen. My only point of view is this does not help a running back who has been viewed by team mates as a Prima Donna, viewed as soft by opponents and viewed as a huge disappointment by Bears fans. It will be interesting to watch over the coming days/weeks how Halas Hall responds. It might just be kick to the curb time.
