According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Benson got into a fight with an unknown subject at Annie's West bar at 1:50 AM on May 30. Cops say Benson was spitting blood from his injured lip.

The report continues ... bar employees tried to calm Benson down -- and the NFL star replied, "I don't give a f*ck."

Benson was asked to leave the bar ... but refused ... and had to be physically escorted out by security.

Once outside, Benson allegedly told a bystander, "All these white boys are ganging up on me and kicking me out."

But according to the report, one bouncer heard Benson make the statement and replied, "I'm going to take time out of my busy job to kick you out?"

Benson then allegedly punched the bouncer in the face ... and knocked the bouncer back.

Bystanders separated the men -- and cops arrived shortly after.

Benson was charged with assault with injury. Bond was set at $5,000.

Big deal, a bar fight. Thats why they have bouncers. At least it wasn't a gun fight. The bartender should have cut him off, before it got that far.

How sad; the RACE CARD gets played again.



The sad part is the fact that by using it for "everything" & "everytime " DILUTES the REAL meaning and robs the true meaning of it from the people who really need the attention.



This is outrageous that this over grown little "kid" uses this tactic. Shame on you .

White boys gang up on you and kick you out of a bar. Black boys gang up on you and kick your head in. Typical thug double standards.
