Chicago Bears fullback Evan Rodriguez, 24, expressed regret on Sunday for his “poor decision” that resulted in a DUI arrest on Friday. Rodriguez was pulled over by the Illinois State Police for speeding and improper lane usage on I-90 and Hubbard Street at approximately 3:30AM.
The incident is his second arrest in recent months. Rodriguez was arrested this past March in Miami for resisting an officer without violence and disordely intoxication after a car in which he was a passenger was involved in a traffic incident. The charges were eventually dropped by prosecutors.
The Bears stated that they were aware of the arrest and were looking into the incident. This most recent incident reportedly jeopardizes Rodriguez’s status with the team. In his apology he expressed that he would “make positive changes… so that this doesn’t happen again.”
