KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Damon Arnette has reportedly been released from the team immediately after his arrest Friday in Clark County, Nevada, according to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero.

Arrest records show that Arnette was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, assault, and possession of a controlled substance.

Further, Pelissero reports Arnette was released from the Las Vegas Raiders in November 2021 due to a social media video featuring guns and threats of killing someone.

When Arnette was signed to a futures deal with Kansas City, the agreement included "a commitment to intense counseling and zero tolerance," according to Pelissero.

Arnette's arrest and release come nine days after the signing.
