Bengals in 1st Place, in arrest that is......
I hate to beat this horse to death but what is it with Cincy? Thirty-Five arrests since 2000?
Mike Brown needs to send these guys to an offseason anger management retreat somewhere in the Andes.

http://cdn.cloudfiles.mosso.com/c191.../static/NL.png The Cincinnati Bengals are alrasdy leading the NFL in one statistical category: arrests.
With three arrests in eight days, the AFC North franchise has had a lot of off-field issues lately. Cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones is facing misdemeanor charges following an incident at a bar, and safety Marvin White is facing an assault case in Louisiana and running back Cedric Benson was arrested Sunday and charged with misdemeanor assault.
According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals have had 35 arrests since 2000. That ranks them first in the league.
"The team is aware of the incidents," Bengals public relations director Jack Brennan said. "However, as with most situations of this nature, it would be inappropriate for the team to comment until the matters are resolved through normal legal channels."
Benson is out on bail;
The two had difficulties resulting from Mr. Benson asking the former male roommate to leave his home a few days prior to this incident," Benson's lawyer, Sam Bassett, said. The conflict became physical early this morning, and we intend to fully investigate. There is not enough information available at this time for further comment."
Per the arrest report, Benson confronted his former roommate at 4:45 a.m. and was "hostile and aggressive." The man alleged that after a discussion, "All of a sudden, he was struck on his face with a closed fist thrown by Benson," followed by more punches that triggered injuries to the left side of his face.
Jones' misdemeanor disorderly conduct and resisting arrest arraignment is set for today.
