NFL Hall of Famer Arrested in Lake County

Dan Hampton, former Chicago Bears player,
current accused drunk driver

Hall of Famer and former Chicago Bears defensive lineman Dan Hampton, 64, was arrested in the Hoosier State last month on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Hampton is suspected of drunk driving driving in Wingate, a small town near Crawfordsville, on the night of November 20. After posting a $25,ooo bond, he was released from the Lake County Jail the next day. Unfortunately, that was not his first arrest for driving while intoxicated. According to CNN, he was similarly charged in Arkansas in 2002.

Hampton was drafted by the Bears in 1979 then went on to play on their 1985 Super Bowl championship team. He was voted into the Hall of Fame in 2002, just days after the Arkansas arrest. He currently hosts a postgame radio show with Ed O’Bradovich on Chicago’s WGN Radio.
