By now, most of the free-speaking world has seen the stories about the arrest of Cedric Benson, his boat, maritime police, public drunkenness and “black friends” getting beat up by the police. Now we have a picture from the event (courtesy of the Chicago Tribune):

Cedric Benson Boat

Looks like a normal party to me, although, there were reports of the boating police cracking down on these types of aquatic celebrations in the area. In the picture, you can see a bottle of Grey Goose vodka (or perhaps, Belvedere), so it’s pretty safe to assume there was a good time being had on Benson’s boat. However, what it is NOT safe to assume is that Benson looks drunk in the above picture.

Just because he’s obviously having a good time and lets it show for the camera doesn’t mean he’s already tanked. While his mugshot might tell a different story, I’m not sure you can honestly say a person with a happy smile and sunglasses on can be considered drunk just because it looks like they are having a good time.

But maybe that’s just me.

In other news, Cedric sure does party with a lot of bikini-clad women… And his mom. There has to be something deeply meaningful there, but damn if I can figure it out.
