Evan Rodriguez charged with DUI

Bears fullback Evan Rodriguez was arrested at about 3:30 a.m. Friday on the Kennedy Expressway and charged with driving under the influence, speeding and improper lane usage.  

"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."

Rodriguez has now been arrested twice this offseason. In March, he was charged with resisting an officer without violence and disorderly intoxication in Miami Beach. But those charges were dropped.

Rodriguez was selected by the Bears in the fourth round of last year's draft out of Temple. Converted from tight end to fullback, he appeared in 12 games with five starts as a rookie, catching four passes for 21 yards.
