The Chicago Bears may have a problem on their hands.
According to the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Department, cornerback Deiondre’ Hall was arrested in Cedar Falls, Iowa on Saturday night. Hall was also reportedly tasered by a Cedar Falls police officer, after refusing to comply with the officers orders.
According to reports, Hall and Green Bay Packers cornerback Makinton Dorleant, who are both University of Northern Iowa alums, were involved in a verbal argument with each other, as well as somehow being involved in a large disturbance at a local bar in Cedar Falls. They were both arrested.
During the incident a bouncer at the bar was assaulted, and a Cedar Falls police officer was hit in the back of the head with a beer bottle. Cedar Falls Police are reviewing, available surveilance footage from the bar to determine what further charges they will pursue in regards two the assault against the bouncer.
Hall was charged with one count of disorderly conduct, public intoxication and interference. Details of the incident were obtained by KWWL, an NBC affiliate in the Cedar Falls area.
This is obviously disappointing news for everyone in involved. The Bears drafted Hall least season in the fourth round of the NFL Draft. He appeared in eight games in 2016, recording nine total tackles and one interception.
There were reports that Hall could be moved to safety because of the log jam the Bears currently have at the corner position.
Hopefully, there will be more clarity on this situation soon.
