This is terrible news to report.
Former Chicago Bears player Michael Richardson has been charged with murder, misconduct involving weapons, and a felony warrant in Arizona according to police reports.

Richardson was an All-Pro cornerback and Super Bowl champion with the Bears in 1985. He was a member of the Bears from 1983-1988 during his first six years in the league and had a rapping part in the Bears 'Super Bowl Shuffle' video.
"I'm LA Mike and I play it cool. They don't sneak by me because I'm no fool."
He played in college at Arizona State and a member of their Sun Devil Hall of Fame.
Richardson had been convicted of over 20 drug offenses since retirement from football.
