Breaking: Alabama authorities detain a Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman…

Isaiah Buggs, a defensive lineman with the Kansas City Chiefs, was charged with burglary and domestic abuse early on Sunday morning in Alabama.

Buggs was freed on a $5,000 bond, per online records from the Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, jail, as reported on Sunday.

The Chiefs and Buggs have had a turbulent offseason, which is continuing with the arrest.

According to, Buggs was charged with animal cruelty last month in Tuscaloosa when it was discovered that two of the dogs in his care, a Pitbull and a Rottweiler mix, were negelected and badly malnourished. Euthanizing one of the dogs was necessary.

Authorities accused him of two misdemeanour counts of second-degree animal cruelty in that instance.

The athlete refuted the accusations, according to Buggs’ agent, who made the claim to that the city had a hidden agenda for bringing the charges.

Trey Robinson’s statement stated, “We believe the City of Tuscaloosa’s decision to file charges today is part of a concerted effort by the City of Tuscaloosa and Tuscaloosa Police Department to besmirch Mr. Buggs’ name and reputation as part of an ongoing subversive campaign to force the closure of his local business Kings Hookah Lounge.”

Robinson added that although the records were private, Buggs had been detained twice this offseason on unidentified misdemeanour offences.

The Steelers selected Alabama football player Greggs in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He played for the Detroit Lions for the last two seasons after spending three with Pittsburgh. After being cut loose by the Lions in January, he joined the Chiefs.

In 56 games (23 starts), the 27-year-old Buggs has tallied 89 tackles, 12 quarterback hits, and two sacks. He gained 33 yards on one fumble recovery.

Rashee Rice, a receiver for the Chiefs, is also charged with eight felonies, six of which are related to collisions causing injuries. This is because of a six-vehicle crash that occurred on a Dallas highway on March 30. An arrest-warrant document states that he was speeding at 119 mph when he caused the collision.

Chukwuebuka Godrick and Wanya Morris, two offensive linemen with the Chiefs, were taken into custody in Johnson County, Kansas, last month on suspicion of misdemeanour marijuana possession. After securing a bond, they were allowed to leave custody.
