New Addition in Legal Trouble

By: Jason Klabacha

Date: Apr 24, 2006

Even before becoming an official member of the Chicago Bears, Ricky Manning Jr. may have major issues. He was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon following an incident at a restaurant in Los Angeles over the weekend.

The five-foot-8, 185-pound cornerback has become a key part of the Bears off-season plans. As a restricted free agent, he signed a five-year offer sheet worth $21 million on Friday to be the Bears nickel back.

However, the 25-year-old was arrested at 3 a.m. Sunday morning after he was allegedly part of a group that attacked a man at a Denny’s near the UCLA campus, where Manning played in college. The group then fled the scene and Manning was pulled over in his car shortly thereafter.

No court date has been set, but Manning posted $30,000 bail.

Although the Carolina Panthers never intended to match the offer sheet Manning signed with the Bears, the legal issue could speed up their official declaration.

The Bears will have to surrender their third round draft pick for signing Manning.

The organization has had a difficult off-season with players getting in trouble with the law. In February DT Tank Johnson was arrested for the second time in eight months following a scuffle with a policeman over a ticket. Charges were eventually dropped after the arresting officer declined to pursue the case.

Later that month, CB Daven Holly was arrested after a shooting incident in Chicago. No one was injured after shots were allegedly fired from an SUV. Holly was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and not having a Firearms Owner Identification Card. His future away from football is in doubt, not to mention his career with the Bears.
