Bengals RB Cedric Benson arrested on misdemeanor assault charge (1:08)

Bengals running back Cedric Benson was arrested on Tuesday and booked into the Travis County, Texas, jail where he posted bail and was released.

According to an arrest affidavit, Benson punched an employee of a bar in Austin last month after being kicked out for getting into an fight with another patron.

This isn't Benson's first run-in with the law. Benson was arrested for two alcohol-related incidents in 2008, but a grand jury declined to indict him and charges were dropped.
