The former receiver and noted draft bust has been charged with felony manufacturing or delivery of cannabis and a misdemeanor count of battery, according to several reports.
ESPN Chicago is reporting that Chicago Police was called to the Bronzeville section of town after reports of marijuana smoke in the area. Terrell was on the scene and interviewed by police in an area where cannabis scales and drug paraphernalia were in sight.
The police report states that Terrell struck the hand of one officer after which he was taken into custody, along with two other men. A different police officer was treated at a local hospital after Terrell attempted to resist arrest, the report said.
The report also indicates an oddity: Terrell’s NFL bio lists his birthday as March 13, 1979, but the police report notes it as April 13, 1978. It’s not clear if that was a police error or if Terrell falsified his birth date. Weird.
This is not the first run-in with the law for the eighth overall pick of the 2001 draft. Terrell previously was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery in 2012 after he allegedly grabbed his ex-girlfriend in his apartment.
Terrell last played in the NFL with the Broncos in 2005 after stints with the Patriots and Bears, the team that drafted him. In 54 career games, most of which were with the Bears, Terrell caught 128 passes for 1,602 yards and nine touchdowns.
