A court appearance by former University of Texas football player Cedric Benson has been rescheduled for Sept. 2.

Benson was scheduled to appear Thursday after being arrested Sunday morning for assault. It involved his former roommate and allegedly happened in downtown Austin.

Benson's attorney claims the alleged victim wants money to settle the case, or he will sell his story to the tabloids.

He goes on to say there is nothing to settle and they will defend the charges.
