A Chicago Bears fullback faces charges after Miami Beach police say he refused to cooperate with officers when a car he was riding in crashed.

Jail records show 24-year-old Evan Rodriguez was arrested early Thursday. He was booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail on charges of disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer at 5:32 a.m. but released several hours later on $1,500 bail.

Following a crash Wednesday night, an arrest report says Rodriguez initially refused to identify himself to police, saying he was an NFL player and didn't need the attention. After leaving the scene and returning, police say he became confrontational, shouting at officers and the man who had been driving.

Rodriguez went to Temple University, where he was a tight end. He played in 12 games for the Bears in 2012, starting in five of them.

An attorney wasn't listed on jail records.
