Former Bears’ linebacker Barkevious Mingo was arrested in Texas this weekend on a charge of indecency with a child-sexual contact.

The law in Texas carries a maximum sentence of 20 years for the crime. Mingo’s attorney said in a statement that they don’t have a lot of information at this time, but calls the allegations “baseless”.

Shortly after discovering the allegations against Barkevious Mingo, the Atlanta Falcons terminated his contract.
