SAN DIEGO (CBS)The San Diego Union-Tribune has compiled a database listing all the NFL football players who have been arrested since 2000.

The list includes all offenses more serious than traffic tickets.

The newspaper used news reports and public records to compile the NFL Arrests Database, which it concedes cannot be considered comprehensive because not all incidents have been reported, and not all public records are available.

Former Bears running back Cedric Benson, now of the Cincinnati Bengals, is at the top of the list. He was arrested this past Sunday in Austin, Texas, on charges of assaulting a family member.

Also toward the top of the chronologically-ordered list is Bears running back Garrett Wolfe, who was arrested in Miami on May 22 on charges of retail theft, assaulting an police officer and resisting arrest.
