Chicago Bears DT Henry Melton arrested in Texas

Jonathan Daniel

On injured reserve for a knee injury, defensive tackle Henry Melton tests the time honored tradition of getting arrested for dumb stuff.

Henry Melton seems to have done something dumb.  Originally broken by Michael C. Wright of ESPN:

Grapevine is Melton's hometown.  Possible good news?  While reports are preliminary, it appears that it may not necessarily be Melton's fault:

Per Wright, he is already bonded out, likely courtesy of the guaranteed money the franchise tag brought him this year.

Update: Adam Jahns brings some more details:

And in a way that seems contradictory to Wright's earlier report, here's what Adam Hoge is reporting now:

Melton was reportedly cooperative when police arrived, but struck a manager after being asked to leave.

It's definitely easy to assume the worst, but this situation, along with a rehabbed knee, can definitely have serious implications on Melton's contract situation next year. As always, keep checking in with us here at WCG and we'll bring you more on this when we have it.
