    Petty crime or not, bubble players need to be good citizens and not get into trouble with the law, no matter how minor.

    I'd love for all the Bears players to be perfect citizens, but that's never going to happen

    It looks like he had some unpaid tickets/citations. Hopefully (for him) is will be a non-issue.

    The problem with rookies or young players, they feel like that teams need them. Almost that their invincible.

    It happens every year. And rookies wonder why they are forced to go to knife and fork school after being drafted.

    You know this for a fact then? It is possible for people to have their licenses suspended and not know about it. Grizz mentioned that it happened to his girl friend and I've had it happen to me more than once.

    I've probably driven many miles on a suspended license and I'm no punk. Just a guy who never received any notice that my license was suspended. It was temporary but nonetheless it was suspended without any knowledge on my part. My license didn't magically change color or light up or anything.

    Jeez if we cut every player who ever got arrested for speeding or a license infraction we'd have a real revolving door around Halas Hall wouldn't we? He was probably on his way to spend some time with his family before camp begins. Jeez it's no big deal. It's just an f'n traffic ticket not a drug bust.

    Whether it is true or not I don't know, but someone said he had a DUI as well prior to this. If that was the case, he should have known it was suspended without having been told. That is common sense.

    The DUI mentioned in the article though said he was arrested in Oct 2011.

    I'm not familiar with license suspension, is it common for them to be suspended for nearly three years?

    if it was his first offense, then only 12 mo's, but he also was speeding, which might have added some time.


    I saw an aritcle this morning(might have been hub's site) saying he paid all the fees and fines and was released, sounds like he hadn't paid the fines/fees from previous issues, maybe the dui/speeding incident.

    I am assuming that since he was able to take care of it and will not have to appear in court that this was something like an unpaid ticket (or tickets). Obviously I don't know for sure. But if it was anything serious, he would have to appear in court with a lawyer.

    I'm not one to hammer a guy for one thing, however, he's starting a trend.

    I can't find out why his license was suspended. Maybe he never got it re-instated fro his DUI?

    I did see where he JUST got it re-instated today (Monday).

    If he got it back that quick, this is not an issue. No harm no foul. Basically he was speeding. No big deal.
