Former Chicago Bears wide receiver David Terrell was charged Friday with having marijuana and battering officers in the Bronzeville neighborhood, officials said.
Officers responding about 1:20 p.m. Friday to a call of people smoking marijuana in a building in the 3900 block of South Calumet found Terrell and two others with cannabis and “materials to package and distribute narcotics” in plain view, police said.
Terrell allegedly struck an officer’s hand during an interview and “resisted and attempted to defeat the arrest,” police said. A second officer also suffered a hand injury while taking Terrell into custody.
