Tank Johnson let go by the Chicago Bears after arrest

After his latest arrest on impaired driving and probation violation, the Chicago Bears finally got fed up with Tank Johnson and released the NFL player.

Tank Johnson let go by the Chicago Bears after arrest According to police reports, the Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson was caught doing 40mp/h in a 25mp/h zone on Friday. Johnson was also "being impaired to the slightest degree".  Police said Johnson was cooperative, and he was released pending analysis of the blood sample. He was not booked or charged, and no citations were issued. DUI charges may be pressed depending on lab results.

 This incident happened just a month after Tank Johnson was released for good behavior from jail doing 120 days behind bars, after police found six unregistered firearms during a raid on his home in December, while he was on probation for a 2005 weapons offense. Johnson was suspended for as many as eight games by National Football League for the probation violation, but his punishment was later reduced to only six games.

 Tank Johnson flew to Chicago from his home in Arizona and Bear coach Lovie Smith gave him the news of the release in a face-to-face meeting Monday, according to reports. A press release by the Chicago Bears read We are upset and embarrassed by Tank's actions last week. He compromised the credibility of our organization."
