Two former college teammates who play for rival NFL teams reportedly were arrested together early Sunday morning following an incident at a bar in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Bears cornerback Deiondre’ Hall was cited under suspicion of interference, disorderly conduct and public intoxication; Packers cornerback Makinton Dorleant was booked for alleged interference, according to KWWL, an NBC affiliate in Eastern Iowa.

Dorleant’s agent declined comment. Hall’s was unavailable to speak by phone, he said.

Both players entered the NFL in 2016 from Northern Iowa.

Hall, 22, was a fourth-round pick who finished with seven tackles, an interception and three passes defensed in eight games. Dorleant, 24, played four games for Green Bay as an undrafted rookie. He made one tackle while predominantly seeing time on special teams.

Hall was shocked with a Taser during the incident, which centered at Sharky’s Fun House, an 18-and-up establishment.

Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times cited a police report when detailing that Hall allegedly “refused to answer questions, yelled at officers, tried to escape and spat in their faces. … Hall resisted as he was being placed in handcuffs, according to the report, and refused to get in the backseat of the squad car.”

  1. Both of them are cornerbacks, and they were both arrested for interference? Usually it’s only a spot foul…

    Dorleant will be cut on Monday and within an hour signed by the lavender lucys.
    ————————
    Dorleant will still be employed by the Packers this Monday because the Packers are the type of organization that will tolerate this sort of behavior (see Letroy Guion) if there is a need and with their secondary ranking near or at the bottom of league there is said need.

  3. cheeseisfattening; you’re not to bright are you? What about keeping a felon convicted of child abuse on your roster? What about having an owner that’s been fined $46 million for fraud. Now that’s what’s called tolerating criminal behavior. A bar fight pales compared to those high crimes. Colero!!

  4. In other news, about 10 million other 21-25 year old Americans were also intoxicated this weekend. Don’t worry, they have assured me “I’m never drinking again.”

  5. This is what I get for not watching my late local news or not getting our newspaper. I find out about stuff happening uptown on PFT!

  6. It’s a bit misleading to call the guy a Packer. He didn’t start the season with the Packers, signed on to the practice squad, got called up to the roster, was injured and place on IR to end his season. If he even played, I would be surprised.

  7. Cedar Falls, Iowa? Yea ,… because that is party central. I can see the private jets coming to that hot spot. What are you STUPID or something? (Forrest Gump movie). You two are the reason men get SHOT for doing something idiotic.
    W A L K A W A Y !

  8. Out of all the places you could go in America to Party you elect to go to Cedar Falls Iowa! WOW. I went to school in rural Iowa, come on guys! I know you went to UNI but still! LOL Lets go to Iowa to Party!!! Maybe Des Moines or Ames but you choose Cedar Falls

  9. Your Honor…Even though I’m a Vikings fan I must come on to say these are completely false charges. The Packers simply do not have cornerbacks!

    Judge – youre right, case closed!

  10. They played together in college, went to the NFL together, got arrested together and will both be polishing up their highlight reels together. I’m not sure what is on those reels but they are going to need them.

    You see people, that’s how you troll successfully.

    Now, I’m off to burn my Makinton Dorleant jersey.
    It was an X-Small anyways.

    Having a hard time with reading comprehension whatjusthapped?
    The article states “Dorleant, 24, played four games for Green Bay as an undrafted rookie. He made one tackle while predominantly seeing time on special teams.”

    So yes he is a packer

  15. Dorleant might have shot possibly at signing a minimum deal at some point later, but Hall’s career is probably over. It’s one thing to get arrested, it’s another to spit in an officer’s face. Even if you’re innocent of the charge, you spit in the officer’s face you’re getting cut.

    No, they’ve won the most championships in NFL history.

    The NFL is full of arrogant punks today. The Packers are no exception.

    I hope the Packers cut him today.

  17. Suspicion of interference? That is a defined crime? In other words Hall was being arrested and Dorleant said something. Merely objecting to police conduct gets him arrested?

  18. vikingjack73 says – “Adrian Peterson is NOT a convicted felon! Get your facts straight!”

    OK, AP is a confirmed child abuser. You believe stuffing leaves in a 4 year old’s mouth while beating the child bloody is just “discipline”. Hopefully you have no children.

  19. How can you be publicly intoxicated in a bar. That’s what a bar is for.
    That’s like being publicly over full at an all you can eat buffet.

  20. @nyneal says – “The NFL is full of arrogant punks…I hope the Packers cut him today”

    So you’ve determined that Dorleant is an arrogant punk based on this incident? Please revoke your Packers fandom. Your constant screeds about “the old days” are quite tedious.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    The Packers won’t cut Dorleant. They have a penchant for players that have run afoul with the law.

    The Vikings let Letroy Guion go after the 2013 season – as he didn’t live up to his 5th round draft potential.

    The Packers signed him early in free agency in an attempt to improve their defense – and since then he’s been in trouble with the law and the NFL multiple times.

    dawoger says:

    What about keeping a felon convicted of child abuse on your roster?
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    You’re not very bright, are you?

    There has never been a Viking player charged with a felony count of child abuse, much less convicted.

  22. Since the website owner decided to cancel the ‘days since an arrest’ meter, I guess the fans will have to reset it to zero.

    “There has never been a Viking player charged with a felony count of child abuse, much less convicted.”

    The talk of a person addicted to the fine art of mincing words. Perhaps Mr. Peterson should take a switch to you, too. I will feel this way until the Packers sign Mr. Peterson and yet again defeat the Minnesota Vikings.

  23. The amount of people supporting AP’s abuse of his child is simply disgusting. Every person down voting a comment criticizing Peterson is as much of a low-life as Peterson himself. If you are a down voter, have the courage to explain yourself.

  24. To all you peterbeater defenders dancing around on a pinhead of a legal technicality in claiming he was never convicted of a felony or child abuse are despicable. Had he not taken a plea he would have been convicted and likely jailed which is where he belongs. But instead he was allowed to plea. Then out of shear desperation to win, the vikes choice was wallow in the sewer of moral relativism (a misdemeanor not a felony) and coddle a child abuser. Meanwhile the morally bankrupt fan base fell to their knees in complete adoration of him.

    In arguments of moral problems, relativism is the refuge of the criminal mind.

  25. Packer trolls …Hahahaha . Defending a punk after an arrest by the police. Now go defend Mark Chmura.

    young men made a mistake, so what get over it

    Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times cited a police report when detailing that Hall allegedly “refused to answer questions, yelled at officers, tried to escape and spat in their faces. … Hall resisted as he was being placed in handcuffs, according to the report, and refused to get in the backseat of the squad car.”

    That’s it, just edit out what you don’t like and deny.

  27. dawoger says:

    Had he not taken a plea he would have been convicted and likely jailed which is where he belongs.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Had he not been an NFL super star – he never would have been charged.

    Had he decided to fight the charges, he never would have been convicted.

    The prosecutor originally decided not to charge Peterson at all. It was media pressure that forced him to file an extremely weak case in the first place.

    Peterson agreed to the “no contest” plea in hopes of getting back on the field in a timely manner.

    If Goodell had let Peterson know what agreeing to that plea would mean – Peterson would have fought it and been acquitted. It just would have taken much longer to work it’s way through the court system.

    Another day, another Packer’s jersey burning.

  29. I can’t understand why the Viking fans would defend Peterson so vigorously? He helped you win 1 playoff game in 10 years, in the other two playoff games of his historical Viking career he had 3 fumbles vs the Saints including one inside the 2 yard line and another huge fumble in the Seahawks game and allowed them to take the lead in the 4th Qtr, not exactly what you would expect from one of your best players in the franchise’s biggest moments.

    Why not simply admit that Peterson is a low life, your owners are morally bankrupt and were successfully sued for $46M in a fraud case and their biggest fraud ever was convincing the Twin Cities that they actually have a pro football team.

  30. It’s always the retaliator and never the instigator, isn’t it?

    I heard it was a drunk Viking fan picking fights that started it all.

  31. @joetoronto – My comment was soley regarding Dorleant’s arrest for “suspicion of interference”. I said nothing about the legitimacy of Hall’s arrest, therefore your rectation of Hall’s conduct is irrelevant.

    Well as a Packers fan I actually laughed at this one and cannot disagree with you.

  33. First of all…kudos waffle. Jays comment made me smile, yours made me laugh.

    Second….how did this turn into a discussion about Peterson? Really?? Come on people…. but since it was turned into a social commentary, let me present this thought. We are currently working on a third generation of children who have not been taught to respect authority. You see it in the workplace, in schools, hell, you even see it in resturaunts. Self-entitled, arrogant, whiny brats who never grow up and think they should always get their way. Well guess what….now they are the parents. Still self-entitled, arrogant, and whiny, and now they have kids of their own. You think Peterson is the pinnacle of bad parenting? Wake up. Give me the farmer who expects things to get done right or else, the school teacher with the wooden ruler, the teaching of discipline and respect…. Can you imagine Vince Lombardi or George Halas coaching today’s NFL? Holy crap!! Bobby Knight would be in shock over what they would do to these players.

    Okay, off my soapbox. Two nobodies got arrested. Whoop-dee-do. Moving on. Vikings still need an oline and a running back, Packers still need 2/3 of a defense and a running back, Bears still need….. oh, nvm. Let’s get to training camp already

  34. a guy in a julio jones jersey kept stealing their money.

    and it wasn’t from their pockets. Bam!
