Chicago Bears linebacker Matt Adams arrested on a misdemeanor weapon charge

Bears linebacker Matt Adams was arrested Thursday night in Chicago for illegal firearm possession, according to police. He was also cited for high-capacity magazines and metal-piercing bullets, a violation of city codes.

Police said Adams was arrested around 6:46 p.m. in the 200 block of North Garland Court in the Loop. According to the police, magazines and weapons were also recovered during a search of his car.

His court date has been fixed for August 24.

Byers acknowledged the arrest in a statement.

“This morning we were informed of an incident involving the arrest of Bears linebacker Matthew Adams,” the team said. “We are in the process of collecting more information. We will refrain from making any further comment at this time.”

The Bears signed 26-year-old Adams to a one-year contract in April. He is a four-year NFL veteran, having previously played with the Indianapolis Colts under coach Matt Eberfluss.

Adams is the second new Bears player to be arrested this off-season. Wide receiver Byron Pringle was arrested for reckless driving on suspicion of donuting on the road and driving on a suspended license. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and is awaiting a pre-trial hearing.

The Bears are on a six-week summer break after wrapping up the veteran minicamp last week. In a message to the team before breaking camp, Aberfluss said he told his players to be mentally and physically prepared for training camp – and also to stay safe during the time.

“Be careful who you walk around and be mindful of where you are and be safe during the holiday,” he said.
