Chicago (AFP) - Chicago Bears cornerback Deiondre Hall and Green Bay Packers cornerback Makinton Dorleant were arrested after an incident at a bar in Cedar Falls, Iowa, police said Monday.

Hall and Dorleant were college teammates in the city at Northern Iowa before entering the NFL in 2016.

Cedar Falls police responded to a disturbance call Saturday night after a bouncer said he was assaulted when a fight broke out inside the bar.

Hall was arrested and cited for disorderly conduct, public intoxication and interference. Police said he did not respond to the instructions and spit in officers' faces, according to the affidavit.

Hall resisted arrest and an officer tasered his left leg to get him in the squad car, police said.

Dorleant was cited for interference after authorities said he approached officers "in a threatening manner" following Hall's arrest.

Hall, 22, was selected by the Bears in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He made nine tackles, intercepted a pass and deflected three others in eight appearances last season.

Dorleant, 24, played in four games for the Packers, making one tackle before a knee injury ended his season.
