Got his attourney's phone number by chance?
Sorry, he's full time retainer for Texas athletes and athletic alumni.
Shoot, the guy has gotta be pretty good man to get him off of both cases like that.
"Magical" things always happen in Travis County Grand Juries with former UT Football Players and DWI charges--as long as nobody was hurt in a wreck.
It escapes me, but what other former UT Football players who had DWI charges, after they graduated, were able to go before a Travis County Grand Jury and be acquitted?
Benson had a DWI dropped once before...
It is really amazing that a Grand Jury could find NO PC on ANY of the charges.. especially the resisting arrest.. when the cops had to pepper spray him to get him into cuffs and off the boat.
He had two within a month timeframe.
Was this just a widebrush swipe? No big deal if it was, just asking.
Ricky Williams had a DWI dismissed while he was at UT.
Seems like UT Football players do get a sweet deal-- as long as it isn't robbery, assauly, possession of controlled substances, etc.
Maybe its because Travis County cops are for the most part, the worst cops in Texas.
Were they Travis county or Austin PD? My understanding is that Austin PD is notorious for letting things slide for Texas players, especially on 6th St. But then, maybe that is how every college town's cops are.
I'm pretty sure he was arrested on Lake Travis by Travis County officers.
Bigge question is that now that he has been cleared, will anybody in the NFL have intrest or has he sucked too much since he entered the NFL?
Even if he is cleared of criminal charges, cant the Commish still keep him out?
If for any reason, bring him in to get reps in practice. Ahman being out affects this team more than not being there at games. With very few runningbacks to practice with it puts limits on our offensive and defensive practices. Bring Benson in and get him going with this very young offense.
didn't he sign with detroit?
did i read that somewhere on here >?
That was going around for a while. IIRC, Detroit brought him in for a "look see" in case of injury.
Uh-uh. Williamson County, the county to the north bordering Travis has the worst cops in the state. I can't remember who it was, but an ex-player got off there too. No freaking way, you just have to see it to believe it.
This was just another drop in the hat for ex-UT players in this area.
williamson, is bad, I wouldn't so much a speed in that area
You may be confusing him with Rudi Johnson.
Separate names with a comma.
