Chicago Bears fullback Evan Rodriguez was arrested in Miami on Thursday night and charged with resisting an officer without violence and disorderly intoxication, according to CBS in Miami.
Rodriguez, who has been training with some Bears teammates in South Florida this offseason including Brandon Marshall, was reportedly arrested at 5:30 a.m. in Miami Beach.
"We are aware of the reports regarding Evan Rodriguez," the Bears said in a statement. "We are currently gathering information to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the situation."
A two-time first-team All-MAC player from Temple, Rodriguez was a fourth-round pick in 2012. He started five of the 12 games he appeared in as a rookie.
New head coach Marc Trestman said at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix this week he was "excited" to see what Rodriguez can do in his offense.
"I certainly see him as a fullback because I've seen enough of that," Trestman said. "After we get through the OTA's, moving him around, getting him on or near the line of scrimmage, he has a lot of upside. He can run well.
"I'm excited to see more of him. I know he's down working with Brandon (Marshall) in Florida. I'm excited to see more and see how far we can go with his flexibility. But he certainly can play the fullback position."
