Packers RB Benson pays fines on 3 citations


MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson has paid fines for three citations in Manitowoc County.

   According to the clerk of courts office, Benson paid $452.50 for a speeding citation. He was accused of going 41 mph over the speed limit.

   Benson also paid $200.50 for driving without a valid license and $200.50 for an animal-at-large citation last month.

   WLUK-TV ( reports Benson still faces another animal-at-large citation. That citation says Benson's two Rottweilers attacked 17 calves at his neighbor's farm in Maribel in December. A sheriff's department report says the dogs chewed on calves' legs and several suffered deep wounds.

   The report says Benson told deputies he had put up a fence to contain the dogs, but they managed to escape.

   That citation is scheduled for court next Wednesday.
