The Kansas City Chiefs have a lot on their minds right now. The Chiefs are preparing to host the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2022 AFC Conference Championship game on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.
Hours before the Chiefs host the Bengals, the team made a roster move. The team has released former first-round draft pick Damon Arnette.
The move came after the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that he had been arrested for gun and drug charges. The report says that he was arrested for two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, carrying or concealing a gun without a permit, possession of marijuana or cannabis, and possession of a class one or two-level controlled substance.
The incident began when the authorities were called to Park MGM with the report of an individual with a gun. The Chiefs did not want anything to do with Arnette after his arrest.
His contract with the team would have kicked in March had he not been released. It’ll be interesting to see if another team will take a flyer on him.
The Chiefs decided to sign him despite threats that he was going to kill another individual in a viral video before being released by the Las Vegas Raiders in November. Arnette’s viral video came around the same time that the Raiders were dealing with the Henry Ruggs III situation.
He was excessively speeding when he was involved in an accident that killed a young woman.
