An injured Chicago Bears player has been arrested on charges of misdemeanor assault and public intoxication after an altercation in a sports bar in Texas.
Defensive tackle Henry Melton reportedly had been asked to leave and was being escorted out when he became violent, striking and biting one of the staff members.
Melton was restrained until police arrived. He is currently on injured reserve after a season-ending injury to his knee in Week 3 of the season.
The Bears have not commented on the incident.
