Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson is set to appear in court next month after neighbors claimed his dogs viciously attacked their baby livestock.The 30-year old Benson is also due in court for an unrelated incident involving speeding and driving without a license.Charges filed by his neighbors allege that Benson's two Rottweilers bit 17 calves at their Manitowoc County farm. One member of the family claims that the dogs chewed the calves' legs so badly that they suffered possible tendon damage along with deep wounds.A police report states that a veterinarian who examined the animals in December believes some of the calves may not live because of their injuries sustained in the incident.Here is the rest of the story courtesy of the Green Bay Gazette:At 3:15 p.m. on Jan. 1, Wisconsin State Police stopped a BMW Benson was driving on Manitowoc County R in Cooperstown and ticketed him on a charge of driving 41 mph above the speed limit. They also charged him with operating without a valid license, alleging that Benson was aware that his Texas license had been suspended for failing to answer a charge of being a habitual traffic offender.The player “had an attitude with me throughout the stop,” a trooper noted.Benson received a $452.50 citation on the speeding charge. The invalid-license charge carries a $200.50 bond.Benson is due in Manitowoc County Court at 10:30 a.m. on Feb. 13 for the traffic violations, though his appearance is not required. He has another appearance scheduled for the animal citations at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 20 in front of Circuit Court Commissioner Patricia Koppa.The middle of February is shaping up to be a rather eventful one for Benson.
