Saturday night in Cedar Falls, Iowa wasn’t the best night for two men who happen to play for two teams in the NFL’s NFC North division. Deiondre Hall, cornerback for the Bears, and Makinton Dorleant, Packers cornerback, were both arrested following an altercation outside of a local bar.
Hall was arrested and cited for disorderly conduct, public intoxication and interference. Dorleant was cited for interference.
According to Cedar Falls police, officers observed and then responded to a disturbance outside a local bar. A bouncer told police that he was assaulted after a fight broke out inside. (via ESPN.com)
Hall was a rookie last year and had played in eight games for the Bears. As ESPN.com writer Jeff Dickerson says in his article, “He appeared destined for a larger role in 2017 until the Bears signed veteran cornerbacks Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper in free agency.”
Hall was going to have to prove to the Bears’ organization that he could hold his own and play with these signings, but this won’t help his future employment. It will be interesting to see how long Hall is with the Bears and if this setback will affect his play.
