Former Packer Rison Arrested
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Retired NFL receiver Andre Rison was arrested and cited for public intoxication after an early-morning disturbance at a San Antonio hotel.
The former five-time Pro Bowl player was arrested shortly after 2 a.m. Monday, police spokeswoman Sandy Gutierrez said Tuesday. Police were called to the hotel after Rison and a friend caused a scene at the Crown Plaza Riverwalk, the San Antonio Express-News reported on its Web site.
He paid an $85 fine for the misdemeanor offense and was released, police said.
Rison won a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers in 1997 and played for seven NFL teams. His best year was with Atlanta in 1993, when he had 1,242 yards and 15 touchdowns. He now holds football camps around the country.
