TMZ reports that Bears receiver Byron Pringle was arrested Saturday, April 23rd, 2022, in Florida. The Police say that they caught Pringle doing donuts in a parking lot in his ‘Hellcat’ with his child in the vehicle, while also driving on a suspended license.
The former Chiefs clutch receiver has had a nice career up to this point, but it could be falling apart as soon as he switched teams and signed with the Chicago Bears in free agency. Pringle, 28, signed with the Kansas City Chiefs when he went undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft. He was originally a practice squad player on the Chiefs and was even cut from the team and eventually re-signed in 2019. Pringle earned the trust from quarterback Patrick Mahomes during Sunday Night Football against the Colts in Week 5, where he finished with 103 receiving yards and a touchdown as the Chiefs lost 13–19. He was placed on injured reserve on November 24, 2020, after suffering an ankle injury in Week 11. The team placed a tender on Pringle on March 17, 2021, which he eventually signed on April 29th. After the 2021 season ended, Pringle was a free agent and signed a one year contract with the Chicago Bears.
