Evan Rodriguez arrested in Miami

When it comes to player arrests, the 2013 offseason has been fairly quiet.  But not silent.

Bears tight end Evan Rodriquez was arrested in Miami for resisting arrest without violence, according to CBS Miami.

The “Special Incident Notification Form” obtained by one of our NBC colleagues indicates that the incident occurred at 11:35 p.m. ET on Wednesday.  According to the form, Rodriguez was arrested “[a]fter impeding a DUI arrest and refusing to comply with police directives.”  (It’s unclear whether Rodriguez or someone else was being arrested for DUI.)

A fourth-round pick in 2012, Rodriguez had a pair of incidents while playing college football.  As Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times explained it last year, Rodriguez was accused of felony assault while at West Virginia, following an alleged altercation with a female residence hall advisor.  Rodriguez then transferred to Temple, where he was arrested for disorderly conduct.The Bears nevertheless rolled the dice.  And the cubes have come up snake eyes.

    The Bears are trying to out do the Lions offseason stupidity.

    When will people not just NFL players learn that if you plan on drinking call a cab in advance or get a reliable sober friend to drive you home?

    why is this guy news? never heard of him

  8. ttommytom says: Mar 21, 2013 10:13 AM

    Before anyone defends him, how many of you have been arrested for any ONE of these, let alone all three before the age of 24?

    It means he has anger issues or does not like being controlled, told what to do, follow simple orders etc. Pick one, or two…

    We ALL have to eat crow from time to time because most of us can see the bigger picture. We don’t cross some lines, we walk away…

    Typical criminal element that plays for the Bears.

    Reasons to visit Miami
    #1 to get a tan
    #2 Learning what NOT to do from the dolphins?

    That’s it! I’m done with football! (lol)

    This is how I pictured it: The officer keeps trying to cuff him, and Rodriguez keeps pulling his hands back and saying “too slow!!”

    Ultra Music Festival got the best of him. Looks like he found Molly.

    All I really got out of public school is that MLK and Gandhi did that kind of thing all the time, and it was supposed to be pretty awesome.

    And unless Rodriguez was also staging a civil demonstration against the tuck rule, this is a shame: I’m not a Chicago fan at all, but I thought this kid had the potential to be a real stud and bring the H-back position back to the NFL.

    Probably Urlacher’s fault……….

    Snake eyes isn’t a bad roll. Two hard pays 12-1. Seven is when you crap out after the come out roll sets the point.

    “Typical criminal element that plays for the Bears.”

    Based on this?

    As compared to what several Lion’s players have done. At least the Packers commit serious crimes, Jolly, Chmura.

    @ phinsneverwin

    Those may be the two worst points I have ever seen in my life.

    “All I really got out of public school is that MLK and Gandhi did that kind of thing all the time, and it was supposed to be pretty awesome.”

    You’re trying to compare a guy fighting an alleged DUI arrest to two of the greatest and most influential leaders this planet has ever seen, who were fighting for civil rights and peace? Clearly you didn’t get much out of that public school.

    How the heck can you resist arrest “non-violently”?

    Did he go limp? That would be a problem esp since he weighs like 240.

    Then again, maybe he was just so wasted that he didn’t do it on purpose (how many of us had to carry friends at one point?)

    Maybe he just chained himself to his car or something.

    How do you get charaged for resisting arrest without violence without having a charge issued that was the reason you were being arrested in the first place? There must be an original charge or this is stupid.

  23. emptybackfield says: Mar 21, 2013 2:33 PM

    Is it even possible to be “arrested … for resisting arrest”? He was arrested for refusing to follow instructions possibly a sobriety test and for disorderly intoxication.

    “I don’t think I’m going to allow you to arrest us today, Behan.” – Kurt Russell’s classic line in ‘Tombstone’ right after the Earps and Doc Holliday shoot it out with the Clantons at the OK Corral.

    Evan who?

    Resisting arrest without violence? Heck, Lindsay Lohan has made a living off of that.

  27. joebone says: Mar 21, 2013 3:01 PM

    Actually he was arrested for being an idiot:

    “When an officer asked him for identification, he responded, “For what, I don’t need this, I’m an NFL player. I don’t need all that media stuff,” according to the police report.”

    my point exactly! if the only charge is “resisting arrest” then what the hell was he resisting before it???
