KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs released defensive tackle Isaiah Buggs as his multiple legal cases play out in Alabama.

Citing sources, NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero was the first to report the news on social media.

The Chiefs later announced the move on X (formerly Twitter).

The move comes as Buggs was arrested twice in less than a month.

On June 16, he was arrested on a second-degree domestic violence/burglary charge.

Court documents revealed Buggs allegedly used a tire iron to break into the apartment where the mother of his child lived.

A witness accused Buggs of dragging the woman down a set of stairs, causing her to sustain scratch marks on her wrist and lose several clip-on toenails.

On May 29, Buggs was also arrested in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for alleged animal abuse.

KSHB 41 has reached out to the Chiefs for comment. This story will be updated if a response is received.
