Bears defensive end Cornelius Washington arrested for driving with suspended license
Bears defensive end Cornelius Washington was arrested Friday on suspicion of speeding while driving with a suspended license, the Glascock County (Ga.) Sheriff’s Office confirmed to the Sun-Times.
According to chief deputy Jeremy Kelley, the former Georgia standout was traveling 70 mph in a 55 zone. When he was pulled over, officers found his license was suspended. He was taken to the McDuffie County jail and released.
By midday Monday, he had “already disposed of his citations” and “taken care of driver’s license and got it reinstated,” Kelley said.
He added that the second-year player was “one of the most respectful people we have dealt with.”
In 2011, Washington was suspended by the Bulldogs for two games after being arrested for driving under the influence and speeding.
Washington was drafted in the sixth round in 2013, and played 10 snaps over two games for the Bears last season.
