Two NFL players were arrested following a disturbance outside a bar in Iowa, according to multiple media reports.
Chicago Sports News had mugshots of the players …
… and also said it had video of what it said is Hall being dragged away by police.
The Packers News, which quoted the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office, said Hall, 22, was cited for disorderly conduct, public intoxication and interference, and Dorleant, 24, was cited for interference. Both players were released, and all charges are misdemeanors. The News also said Hall was tasered in the leg.
The incident took place at a bar not far from Northern Iowa University, where Hall and Dorleant attended college. Dorleant, in a phone call to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, gave his side of events:
“The bouncer at the front door, he wasn’t letting us in. He forced me out, and then Deiondre’ saw it and there was a little shoving, like other guys too that we were hanging out with. Then the police came and they just had to separate us. They took me and Deiondre’ — not away but they drove us off just because there was a scene. We ended up driving away downtown. Then we got let go. That was really it. Nothing else really happened from what I know.”Advertisement
Hall appeared in eight games for the Bears last season, and Dorleant was an undrafted free agent who suffered through injuries last season.
