Bears give boot to Johnson

June 26, 2007


— The Chicago Bears released defensive tackle Tank Johnson on Monday.

Johnson was waived three days after he was pulled over by police in Arizona. He already had been suspended for the first eight games of the 2007 season for violating probation on a gun charge. He spent two months in jail and was released in May.

Police in a Phoenix suburb stopped Johnson for driving 40 mph in a 25 mph zone at 3:30 a.m. Friday.

Sgt. Andrew Duncan, a police spokesman, said Johnson was arrested for "DUI Impaired to the Slightest Degree" but was released without being booked or charged.
