Former Bears Quarterback Charges After Quarrel With Girlfriend

Police say former Chicago Bears quarterback Bobby Douglass faces trespass and criminal damage charges following an incident with an ex-girlfriend at her suburban residence.

The Bears issued a statement on Friday morning: “We are stunned and saddened to hear the tragic news regarding Dave Duerson. He was a great contributor to our team and the Chicago community. Today is a difficult day for all of us who loved Dave. We’ll miss him. Our prayers are with his family.”

Now before we get a handful of "ban Favre's jersey" comments... try and think outside the box. Tell us what jersey the Bears should ban, or... if you think the whole Fashion Police idea is a soft Philadelphia thing, and us Chicago fans could care less about some stinkin' shirt... tell us that too.

Douglass was charged with one count each of criminal trespass to land and criminal damage to property. The 63-year-old Douglass appeared Thursday in Lake County court. A clerk says bond was set at $10,000.

Messages left Thursday for Douglass' attorney and at Douglass' Lake Forest home weren't immediately returned.

Douglass was with the Bears from 1969 to 1975.
