Bears wide receiver Josh Morgan has agreed to perform community service to have an assault charge dropped.

If Morgan completes 32 hours of community service within four months, the misdemeanor assault charge against him will be erased from his record, according to CSNWashington.com.

Days after he signed a contract with the Bears, Morgan was accused by a valet of assault. According to the victim, Morgan punched him for looking in the direction of a woman Morgan was accompanying.

“I was just standing there and I looked up, and in the blink of an eye he just punched me right in the mouth,” the victim said at the time. “Instantly my mouth is bleeding profusely, just blood coming out all over my jacket and stuff. I was scared. I didn’t know what to do. . . . It’s not fair for anybody to go around punching people just doing their job. I didn’t say anything disrespectful to the lady. I didn’t look at her or sexualize her in any way. I just looked in the direction and I got hit.”

For his part, Morgan claimed he never touched the man.

Morgan, who played the last two years in Washington, is expected to compete for the No. 3 receiver spot in Chicago.

    It must be great to be rich and famous. Because if I would have done that, I would have be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Morgan claims he never touched him. he must be using the old “I didn’t hit him he fell down” routine.

    When I first saw the headline I misread it as John Gordon. I was like ‘Wow, an assault charge too?!”

    In the NFL you can commit assault and/or murder and still be allowed to play and actually be celebrated, but if you smoke pot you get banned and publicly shamed. You people are revolting.

    Lol if you think you would go to jail for punching some dude, you watch too much TV. Community Service is about right lol. What do you expect?

    You love when men check out your wife? Most wives like to feel protected. Acting like you don’t care is how you get played. I hope for the best in your marriage.

    The Bears should move him to defense. That would have been the hardest hit out of any of them last year.

    Yes. Yes I do. You say this as if its a bad thing. hahaha.

    I don’t know Morgan’s criminal history, but an average Joe with no prior record, would not get jail time even with a public defender, probation most likely. Morgan has money for a good lawyer so he gets community service. That’s what lawyers are paid for.

    What do men expect? If a woman is pretty and dresses like it, has a good physique and commands attention, MEN WILL LOOK! That’s why they have eyes. Only insecure persons take offense just because guys look. If you don’t want men to ogle, get someone overweight and ugly. Than you won’t have to feel insecure. As I am hetero, I admit, I have looked at good looking women myself.

    Poor people who hate what they do for a living, only have to read three paragraphs to know everything about this case.

    If you have ever been in any sort of confratation, you know both parties stories are often drastically different. Especially when the “victim” can make money off being a victim.

    I hope there’s a civil suit coming out of this. There must be witnesses.

    Josh Morgan has done more for the community than any of you bums trolling this site. Get a life anyone who is calling out Morgan.
