Grapevine police Sgt. Robert Eberling said Melton was arrested early Sunday at Chill Sports Bar after becoming belligerent. The nearly 300-pound Melton, who suffered a cut nose but declined treatment, was freed on $1,210 bond.
The 27-year-old Melton allegedly punched the manager in the face and bit his arm, Eberling said. The manager wasn't seriously hurt. Eberling said four bar staffers restrained Melton until police arrived.
Melton, a former Texas standout from Grapevine, is out for the season after tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament Sept. 22 against Pittsburgh.
Bears officials and agent Jordan Woy both said they were seeking more information about the incident.
