Ex-Chicago Bull Arrested for Domestic Violence

EXCLUSIVE

Former Chicago Bulls player Corey Benjamin -- a 1st round pick in the '98 NBA Draft -- was arrested Tuesday after an altercation with his girlfriend allegedly turned physical.  

Benjamin -- who was famously balled up by a retired Michael Jordan at a Bulls workout in 1999 -- has been accused of battery and cell phone smashing ... stemming from a February incident in California. 

CB's longtime girlfriend told police they were arguing when Corey grabbed her phone and smashed it -- and then physically blocked her from using the house phone to call 911. 

She claims she ran out of the house and drove to a nearby police station and got help. An arrest warrant was issued for Benjamin back in May -- but now, we've learned he was taken into custody this week. 

He faces 3 charges -- 1 felony and 2 misdemeanors. He's due back in court later Thursday to be arraigned.
