Trouble has found new Chicago Bears wide receiver Josh Morgan in his hometown.
D.C. Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Paul Metcalf confirmed to NFL Media on Monday that Morgan was arrested early Sunday morning and booked on one charge of misdemeanor simple assault.
Morgan, 28, signed a one-year deal with the Bears last week after spending the last two seasons with the Washington Redskins.
In 14 games (seven starts) last season, Morgan had 20 receptions for 214 yards.
Morgan is expected to battle with Marquess Wilson for Chicago's No. 3 receiver role behind Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.
