Breaking news: Bears, Packers cornerbacks both arrested in Iowa
Breaking news: Bears, Packers cornerbacks both arrested in Iowa.Two former college teammates who play for rival NFL teams reportedly were arrested together early Sunday morning following an incident at a bar in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
Bears cornerback Deiondre’ Hall was cited under suspicion of interference, disorderly conduct and public intoxication; Packers cornerback Makinton Dorleant was booked for alleged interference, according to KWWL, an NBC affiliate in Eastern Iowa.
Dorleant’s agent declined comment. Hall’s was unavailable to speak by phone, he said.
Both players entered the NFL in 2016 from Northern Iowa.
Hall, 22, was a fourth-round pick who finished with seven tackles, an interception and three passes defensed in eight games. Dorleant, 24, played four games for Green Bay as an undrafted rookie. He made one tackle while predominantly seeing time on special teams.
Hall was shocked with a Taser during the incident, which centered at Sharky’s Fun House, an 18-and-up establishment.
Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times cited a police report when detailing that Hall allegedly “refused to answer questions, yelled at officers, tried to escape and spat in their faces. … Hall resisted as he was being placed in handcuffs, according to the report, and refused to get in the backseat of the squad car.”
