    Bears CB, 2 Others Charged With Assault

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Chicago Bears cornerback Ricky Manning Jr. and two former UCLA football players were charged with assault Thursday for allegedly taking part in an early morning fight at a restaurant last month.

    Manning was charged with one count of assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, Deputy District Attorney Karen Murcia said.

    His arraignment was scheduled for Thursday afternoon. Manning has previously declined comment.

    Manning, a former UCLA star, was arrested April 23, along with former Bruins Tyler Ebell and Maurice Drew, after they allegedly attacked a man at a restaurant near the UCLA campus in Westwood.

    Police said the players then drove off in Manning's SUV but were pulled over by officers soon after when the vehicle was spotted by a helicopter crew.

    All three were released on $30,000 bail each.

    Ebell, 22, and Drew were expected to surrender and be arraigned at a later date, Murcia said.

    Drew, 21, was taken by Jacksonville in the second round of the NFL draft. The running back attended mini-camp in Florida last month.

    Manning, 25, signed with the Bears last month after the Carolina Panthers declined to match Chicago's offer sheet. He is on probation for an assault in April 2002. If convicted, he faces up to four years in state prison.

    The Bears did not return messages seeking comment.

    Proof positive that $$$ does not equal brains...seems to take some of the grey matter away actually.

    Yeah, the media conspiracy bottled this news up pretty well.
    "Give the kid another chance."

    I had hoped for that guy too. But this was more than just an ordinary mugging that any star player can be excused for.
    It happened under bright lights ... in a restaurant.

    I hope the perps rot ... and that the victim gets a HUGE jury award.
