Bears fullback Evan Rodriguez was arrested for drunk driving early this morning.

Chicago sports radio station WSCR reports that Rodriguez was ticketed for driving under the influence, speeding and improper lane usage after he was pulled over on I-90 at 3:30 a.m.

The Bears have released the standard boilerplate statement that teams usually issue about player arrests about being aware of the situation and gathering more information.

This is the second time this offseason that Rodriguez has been arrested. In March, he was arrested in Miami for resisting an officer. That charge was later dropped.

A fourth-round draft pick out of Temple last year, Rodriguez played in 12 games as a rookie, starting five.
