The Bears today waived the troubled defensive -- three days after he was pulled over by police in Arizona.
Johnson had already been suspended for the first eight games of the 2007 season for violating his probation on a gun charge. He spent two months in jail and was released in May.
Bears general manager says the team was "upset and embarrassed" by Johnson's actions last week. Angelo says the player "compromised the credibility" of the Bears organization.
Police in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert say Johnson was stopped for driving 40 miles per hour in a 25 mile per hour zone at 3:30 a-m Friday and the officer made observations that led him to believe Johnson was impaired.
