Cedric Benson has been released from jail in Austin, Texas, after being arrested for assault, according to the Associated Press.

The ex-Bears running back was arrested on a misdemeanor count of assault with bodily injury involving a former male roommate. It was first reported that the dispute was with a Benson family member but Benson’s attorney, Sam Baskett, claims that is erroneous.

Benson, a free-agent after leading the Bengals in rushing in each of the past three seasons, was arrested last summer after an alleged fight in an Austin bar. He was charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly punching an employee of a bar in the face.

The Bears released Benson, a former first-round draft pick, before the 2008 season.
