Report: Evan Rodriguez cleared of charges

Bears fullback / tight end Evan Rodriguez has been cleared of charges stemming from a March incident in Miami, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reported Friday.

Rodriguez reportedly faced disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest charges, but his attorney told the Tribune the State’s Attorney prosecuting the case “made a conclusive determination that no crimes were committed by Evan Rodriguez.”

The 23-year-old Rodriguez was the Bears’ fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft. He played 12 games as a rookie, starting five, catching four passes for 21 yards.

With the Bears hiring a new head coach (Marc Trestman) and installing a new offense, this is an important season for Rodriguez, who reportedly had multiple off-field incidents in college.

    This guy’s got a rap-sheet longer than my arm but I’m sure he did nothing wrong here.

    I don’t know much about this kid, or his personal situation, but speaking in general terms…the law almost always bends for those fortunate individuals who are perceived to “have a bright future in a particular field.”

    Translation–Some people were talked to and some palms were greased.

    It must really stink to be a good cop and have your arrests overturned by politicians and DAs who bend to the whims of people who are rich, powerful, and/or famous. If I’m the cop who arrested this guy, I’d find him and give him a good a**-whuppin’ just to show who’s in charge.

    Good for him on a personal level, good for the Bears to have one less distraction.

    This “kid” makes 10 times more money than you do and hobknobs with people that you only dream about. But, of course, your superior intellect has completely surveyed all the evidence in this case and concluded that law enforcement must be corrupt because the facts, as you know them, clearly indicate the most nefarious actions by Mr. Rodriguez. Its a good thing that we have folks like these posters on the case.
