Chicago Bears wide receiver David Moore was arrested in his hometown of Gainesville, Texas, according to a report

According to TMZ, Moore fell asleep behind the wheel of a truck he was driving while in the line of a Taco Bell. Officers found Moore asleep in the driver's seat of a 2018 Ford F250 at the local fast-food joint at around 11:18 p.m. on July 3.

TMZ reported Moore was found with "a package of THC edible candies along with three pistols." He apparently smelled like marijuana during questioning. 

Moore was released from Cooke County Jail the same day on a $5,000 bond.

The receiver played the first four seasons of his NFL career for the Seattle Seahawks before playing for both the Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers during the 2021 season. 

He signed a one-year contract with the Bears this past April, joining a group headlined by Darnell Mooney, Byron Pringle and newly drafted Velus Jones Jr. 

Moore marks the third Bears player arrested this summer, alongside linebacker Matt Adams (misdemeanor gun possession) and Pringle (reckless driving). 

The Bears start training camp at Halas Hall on July 26.
