LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -Tank Johnson was released Monday by the Chicago Bears, who are ``upset and embarrassed'' by the defensive tackle's legal troubles.

Johnson was waived three days after he was pulled over by police in Arizona. He already had been suspended for the first eight games of the 2007 season for violating probation on a gun charge. He spent two months in jail and was released in May.

``We are upset and embarrassed by Tank's actions last week,'' general manager Jerry Angelo said in a statement. ``He compromised the credibility of our organization. We made it clear to him that he had no room for error. Our goal was to help someone through a difficult period in his life, but the effort needs to come from both sides. It didn't, and we have decided to move on.''

Police in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert said Johnson was stopped for driving 40 mph in a 25 mph zone at 3:30 a.m. Friday and the officer made observations that led him to believe Johnson was impaired.

Sgt. Andrew Duncan, a police spokesman, said Johnson was arrested for ``DUI Impaired to the Slightest Degree'' but was released without being booked or charged.

Duncan said Johnson was taken to the Gilbert police station, where officials drew blood for a blood-alcohol content test before his release. He described Johnson as ``very cooperative.''
