The longtime Bears and Bengals running back was charged with driving while intoxicated in Texas Saturday morning, and had a novel excuse for not undergoing a field sobriety test. According to court documents, Benson refused the field sobriety test. When the officer asked Benson to recite the alphabet from G to Z, he said he couldn’t do it “because he played 8 years in the NFL.” The affidavit says Benson was also asked to count but he told the officer he could only count to three. Benson posted bond the same day he was arrested. Blame it on concussions, that seems to be the easy way out.-TO
