Chicago Bear Tim Jennings arrested on DUI near Atlanta

DULUTH, Ga. (AP) — Suburban Atlanta police say Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings has been arrested on charges including DUI, reckless driving and speeding.

Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Jake Smith said in a statement that 31-year-old Timothy Deshawn Jennings was driving a 2015 Mercedes at 99 mph in a 65-mph zone on I-85 before noon Wednesday. Smith says the officer conducting the stop smelled alcohol.

County records show that Jennings was booked into the county jail Wednesday afternoon and was being held on $2,711 bond. It was not immediately known if he had a lawyer.

Jennings, of Orangeburg, South Carolina, has been in the NFL since 2006 and played for the Indianapolis Colts between 2006 and 2009.

A Bears spokesman said the team is aware of Jennings' arrest and gathering additional information.
