Bears | Sanders under Investigation

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports officials in Ohio are investigating the possibility of bringing criminal charges against Chicago Bears TE Darnell Sanders. His dogs were reportedly involved in the attack and death of an 82-year-old man. Ernie Assad passed away 11 days after Sanders' pit bull and American bulldog, and one other dog, attacked him while he watered plants in his backyard. Natalie Gruttadauria and her brother Dominick Gruttadauria were already charged; Sanders left his dogs with Natalie while he attended the Bears' offseason workout. Under state law, Sanders is required to have $100,000 liability insurance for the pit bull. Police are investigating to determine if he had such insurance and whether or not the dogs were licensed in the municipality in which he lives. The dogs are in the custody of an animal shelter and may be destroyed.
