Former Bears All-Pro from Super Bowl team charged with murder

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 locked up Wednesday in connection with the shooting death of 47-year-old Ronald Like on Tuesday in Phoenix.

He had been locked up twice previously in 2020 for alleged drug possession.

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.

BearsHQ would like to give out our warmest thoughts to the family and friends of the victim of this tragic event.
