    Garrett Wolfe talked Wednesday about how the NFL’s lockout has the potential to do irreversible damage to his career. While the league’s labor impasse is well out of his control, the latest blow to the Bears’ backup running back’s career appears to be self inflicted.

    The former Holy Cross High School and Northern Illinois star was arrested in Miami on Sunday morning and charged with retail theft, disorderly conduct, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest with violence, according to Miami-Dade County Police Department records. His bond has been set at $11,500.

    The arrest could make it more difficult for Wolfe, whose free-agent status remains in limbo during the lockout, to either re-sign with the Bears or latch on with another team.
