Former Bear Richard Dent arrested for driving 107 mph on Edens

Former Chicago Bears defensive end and Super Bowl MVP Richard Dent pleaded guilty Wednesday to driving over 100 mph on the Edens Expressway in Northfield last year.

Dent, 54, pleaded guilty to a Class A speeding violation Wednesday and was sentenced to 12 months of conditional discharge, according to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.

He was also fined $500 plus court costs, which amounted to a total of more than $900, according to prosecutors.

About 2:13 a.m. on April 28, 2014, Dent was driving on the Edens (I-94) at Winnetka Avenue in Northfield when he was pulled over for speeding, Northfield police said at the time.

Dent, of Long Grove, was driving a 2010 Range Rover when he was clocked going 107 mph in a 55 mph zone, police said.

Dent played for the Bears from 1983-93, and again in 1995. He was the MVP of Super Bowl XX, and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011.
