Yeah, they talked about this on Mike and Mike the other day. The bears knew he was below the legal limit. That was besides the point.
Just the fact that he was running around making headlines at 3 in the morning was enough, let alone the speeding ticket.
It shows that he really doesn't care enough to actually change his behavior. There's really very few reasons to be out that late when you're a pro football player, other than boozing it up at clubs and parties.
