Ex-Bear QB Douglass Arrested For Trespassing

LAKE FOREST (CBS) — On Wednesday, former Chicago Bears quarterback Bobby Douglass was arrested in Lake Forest and charged with felony criminal trespassing to a residence and criminal damage to property.

The 63-year old Douglass is accused of breaking into the home of an on-again, off-again girlfriend at about 9:30 p.m. Douglass allegedly went to talk to her, tried to force open the door of her residence and damaged the frame.

He appeared in court on Thursday morning and his bond was set at $10,000.

Douglass played for the Bears from 1969 to 1975 and threw for 4,932 yards, 30 touchdowns and 51 interceptions.

Information from the Associated Press contributed to this report.

    He should be charged with Stalking…he got a break it sounds like he did not deserve. This is a Domestic Violence situation of a man who is out of control.

    Give him a break he was probably drunk and didn’t realize what he was doing

    • Vernon Demerest

      Alcohol is never ever an excuse for violent behavior. Society jails drunk drivers. There is no evidence that he was intoxicated. Shame on him. He was so violent that the police were summoned. Joe is right, he should have been charged with stalking, He got off lightly.

    Abe Gibbon had the BEST line about Bobby Douglass. “He could throw a pea through a box car………if he could hit it!” His QB rushing record stood for years, until the dog killer broke it a few years ago. Then he tried to make it as a pitcher with White Sox…..pitched in Des Moines with the then, Iowa Oaks.
