Former Michigan and Chicago Bears wide receiver David Terrell was found not guilty on a felony drug charge and a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from an August 2013 case, according to a Chicago Tribune report.
Terrell, 34, who played at Michigan from 1998-2000 and was a first round draft choice of the Bears in 2001, was cleared of the charge of manufacturing cannabis with intent to deliver during a bench trial Friday in a Cook County, Ill., circuit court.
On Aug. 16, police were called to a home on the South Side of Chicago on a report of people smoking marijuana. Authorities said they found Terrell with two others and a duffel bag believed to have contained narcotics.
Terrell was also cleared of a subsequent battery charge involving a police officer.
At U-M, Terrell caught 137 pass for 2,005 yards and 19 touchdowns. He played five NFL seasons, mostly with Chicago, where he caught 128 passes for 1,602 yards and nine TDs.
