CEDAR FALLS – A Chicago Bears team member has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges in a March 2017 disturbance on College Hill.
Deiondre Clifton Hall, 27, submitted a written plea to disorderly conduct and public intoxication on Feb. 9 and was granted a deferred judgment, meaning the charge will come off his record if he completes six months of informal probation. He was also ordered to pay $1,530 in civil penalties and court costs.
A charge of interference was dismissed as part of the plea.
Three others were arrested in the incident.
According to court records, patrol officers noticed a bouncer having trouble removing people from Sharkey’s on College Street around 1 a.m. March 26, 2017. Police assisted and attempted to detain Hall, a former member of the University of Northern Iowa Panthers football team, and a crowd attempted to intervene, pelting officers with debris.
Sheriff’s deputies and UNI police were called to assist.
Also arrested were Makinton Dorleant, a former Panther who was playing for Green Bay, and current Panthers Andre John Allen Jr. and Xavior Lee Williams.
Dorleant pleaded guilty to interference in May and was granted a deferred judgment with one year of informal probation and $610 in court costs and civil penalties.
Allen pleaded to disorderly conduct in June and was ordered to pay $195 in civil penalties, costs and surcharges.
Williams pleaded to one count of disorderly conduct --- amended down from two counts of assault on an officer --- in August and was sentenced to four days in jail. The sentence is concurrent with six days of jail time and $1,827 in fines and costs for an unrelated operating while intoxicated charge from a January 2017 on-campus traffic stop.
