Former bear LB Barkevious Mingo is charged with indecency with children in Texas


ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – NFL linebacker Barkevious Mingo, who is currently with the Atlanta Falcons, has been arrested in Texas on charges of indecency and child sexual contact, police said Saturday.

Mingo, 30, was arrested Thursday by police in the Dallas suburb of Arlington. Prison records listed an address for Mingo in West Monroe, Louisiana.

Arlington police said in a statement that the agency could not provide further information on the investigation, citing “the nature of the charges and the age of the victim”.

“Mingo turned his head in on his own initiative in consultation with his lawyer,” police said.

Mingo was released after posting $ 25,000 bail.

His lawyer did not immediately return an email on Saturday seeking comment.

Mingo was selected by Cleveland as the sixth overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft. He signed a one-year deal with the Falcons in March. Mingo also played for Chicago, Houston, New England and Seattle during his NFL career.

“Our organization has become aware of the allegations regarding Barkevious Mingo today and is currently gathering information about this incident. The Falcons take the allegations very seriously and will continue to monitor the situation,” the Falcons said in a statement.
