Penalty on the play.
Chicago Bears vast receiver Byron Pringle was arrested Saturday after he was allegedly caught doing donuts on a freeway in Florida.
Pringle’s automotive, an orange Dodge Challenger, was noticed on a freeway in Pasco County, about 30 miles north of Tampa, because it emerged from a cloud of smoke after the sound of squealing tires was heard.
“I noticed a big cloud of smoke within the space of the median break,” Florida Freeway Patrol Sgt. Justin Bloom wrote in an arrest report. “I heard the sound of squealing tires and noticed the cloud of smoke, which decreased the visibility to almost zero for site visitors on the westbound lanes of State Street 56.”
“I may scent the distinct scent of burnt rubber as I proceeded to show round in the identical median break,” Bloom wrote. “I noticed a collection of tire marks on the roadway per a car performing” a doughnut.
There was one other man within the automotive and a boy within the backseat, the report states.
Pringle, who signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Chicago Bears final month, was booked for reckless driving and driving with a suspended license.
Neither the 28 year-old nor the Bears have commented publicly in regards to the arrest.
