Chicago bears recipient David Moore was arrested on drug and weapons charges in his hometown of Gainesville, Texas over the weekend.
In a press release, Gainesville police said officers who arrived at the scene, possibly intoxicated, found Moore asleep in the driver’s seat of a silver 2018 Ford F250 while driving to Taco Bell late Sunday night. Officers smelled marijuana while talking to Moore and found a package of THC edibles and three guns while searching the vehicle.
Police arrested Moore and charged him with possession of controlled substances and illegal possession of weapons.
The Bears said they were aware of the arrest and were “gathering additional information.” They said they would “refrain from further comment”.
In April, Moore signed a one-year contract with Chicago. He has 78 receptions in five seasons with Seattle, Denver and Green Bay.
The Bears have changed a lot since going 6-11 last season and missing the playoffs for the ninth time in 11 years. They fired general manager Ryan Pace and coach Matt Nagy and replaced them with Ryan Poles and Matt Eberfluth.
