After cuffing Hall, he refused to enter the police car. Officers tasered him to get him to comply. He faces charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and interference with official acts.
Dorleant tried to grab Hall away from police as he was being arrested. He has been charged with interference with official acts.
Hall was a fourth-round draft pick last fall for the Bears. Dorleant was a free agent signing for the Packers.
