CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois State Police say Chicago Bears tight end Evan Rodriguez has been ticketed for driving under the influence, speeding and improper lane usage.
Authorities say Rodriguez was ticketed early Friday on Interstate 90, near downtown Chicago.
The incident was the second encounter the 24-year-old Rodriquez has had with police this year. In March, Rodriguez was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer in Miami. Those charges were eventually dropped.
The Bears said Friday that they were aware of Friday's incident. The team said it was gathering information.
Rodriguez, drafted out of Temple, played in 12 games for the Bears in 2012. He had four catches for 21 yards.
