Chiefs DL Isaiah Buggs Facing Animal Cruelty Warrants

Two animal cruelty warrants have been filed against Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs in a situation that allegedly involved dogs.

The alleged incidents took place in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

"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 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.

This is just the latest incident involving a Chiefs player, noted Adam Teicher of ESPN.

"Wide receiver Rashee Rice was arrested in Dallas in March for his involvement in a six-car crash that injured at least seven people. Police say Rice was driving 119 mph on a freeway before causing the crash.' Teicher wrote. "Rice is facing one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury."
