    Former Chicago Bears wide receiver David Terrell was charged Friday with having marijuana and battering officers in the Bronzeville neighborhood, officials said.

    Officers responding about 1:20 p.m. Friday to a call of people smoking marijuana in a building in the 3900 block of South Calumet found Terrell and two others with cannabis and “materials to package and distribute narcotics” in plain view, police said.

    Terrell allegedly struck an officer’s hand during an interview and “resisted and attempted to defeat the arrest,” police said. A second officer also suffered a hand injury while taking Terrell into custody.

    Both injuries were non-life-threatening, police said.

    Both injuries were non-life-threatening, police said.

    Terrell, of the 1800 block of South Calumet, was charged with one felony count of manufacture or delivery of 30-500 grams of cannabis, and one misdemeanor count of battery, authorities said.

    On Saturday, Judge Laura Sullivan ordered Terrell held on a $20,000 bond, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Lisa Gordon said.

    Terrell posted the required 10 percent — $2,000 — after his bond hearing and was released prior to being assigned a jail cell.

    The Bears selected the University of Michigan standout with the eighth pick in the 2001 NFL draft, but he was only on the team from 2001-04. Terrell started 15 games and had 42 receptions for 699 yards and a touchdown in his final season with the Bears. He played one game for the Denver Broncos in 2005, his final season in the NFL.

    Terrell is either age 34 or 35. Police said Terrell was born April 13, 1978, but the NFL lists his birthday as March 13, 1979.

    Terrell will be back in court Sept. 3, according to the state’s attorney’s office.

    Stupid is as stupid does right? How in the blue hell did we ever end up drafting this fool to begin with?

    Sorry shark, looks like we had the same idea at exactly the same time. Maybe the staff can combine mine with yours.

    Mods - Just delete this one. Soul's thread also has a picture and a legitimate response already.

    1st Hurd & now Terrell.

    Trace this back to the Bears inability to groom QBs. Forced WRs to moonlight to make a living...
