Chiefs DL Isaiah Buggs Arrested For Second Time In A Month

Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs has been arrested in Alabama for the second time in a month — this time on a domestic violence/burglary charge, per online records.

Buggs has since been released after being booked, reports say.

"Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office records show Buggs was released on a $5,000 bond. No further details about the arrest were available," the Associated Press wrote. "The Chiefs were aware of the case but declined to comment."

Buggs was first arrested in late May, also in Tuscaloosa, on two animal cruelty warrants in a situation that allegedly involved dogs.

"According to court documents, the Tuscaloosa Police Department received a report that two dogs were being left on the back porch of a home being rented by Buggs. Officers and animal control found a gray and white pit bull and a black rottweiler on a screened-in back porch with no access to food or water," ESPN wrote.

"Both dogs appeared malnourished and neglected, and the residence appeared to be abandoned. Witnesses told police Buggs had recently moved from the house. Both dogs were seized, and the pit bull eventually was euthanized."

Buggs' agent, Trey Robinson, denied all of those charges.

"Under no circumstance does Mr. Buggs condone the mistreatment of any animal,'' Robinson said in a statement. "The dogs at issue did not belong to him and he was unaware they remained at the property in question."

Robinson added that Buggs has been arrested at his hookah lounge "on two separate occasions in the past two months, but each time no public record was made of these arrests." Those arrests were on misdemeanors, Robinson said.

"Buggs, 27, played three seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers and two with the Detroit Lions before joining the Chiefs in January as a practice squad player," the AP relayed. "The Chiefs re-signed Buggs to an NFL futures contract in February."
