As reported by the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, all charges against Chicago Bears FB / TE / H-Back Evan Rodriguez were dropped.

The 23 year old Rodriguez was arrested a month ago, and he faced disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest charges after mouthing off to police following a traffic stop. Rodriguez was a passenger in the car, and he allowed his temper to get the best of him.

From the Chicago Tribune:

"Evan was not intoxicated nor did he engage in disorderly conduct," a statement from the law office said. "After a careful review of the facts, the State Attorney’s office made a conclusive determination that no crimes were committed by Evan Rodriguez and accordingly and appropriately dropped all the charges for which he was mistakenly arrested."

That's one potential headache out of the way as the Bears continue to prepare for tonight's draft.
