Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of illegally carrying hidden weapons in a car. He has not been charged with a crime.
According to multiple reports-the first from TMZ Sports — Clark was stopped in Los Angeles on Sunday night due to a vehicle violation at 9:20pm Pacific time. At that time, an arrest officer from the Los Angeles Police Department noticed an open duffel bag in Clark’s Lamborghini SUV. Sticking out of the bag is a submachine gun. According to Tony Im, the Public Information Officer of the Los Angeles Police Department, Associated Press, The gun in question is Uzi.
According to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Bureau Prisoners website, 28-year-old Clark was booked at 9:28 am Pacific time and released for $35,000. TMZ Sports later reported that, according to sources “close to Clark”, the gun belonged to one of his security guards.
“We are aware of this and this will be reviewed in accordance with the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy,” NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said in a statement on Monday.
Clark was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence in 2014 when he was a member of the Michigan Wolverines football team. Although he was fired from the team, he eventually pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge.
Clark signed a five-year, $104 million contract with the Chiefs. This is the third year he signed with the Chiefs. In his first two seasons, he became a Pro Bowl player. The 2015 second-round NFL draft pick spent his first four seasons with the Seahawks before being traded to Kansas City. There, he completed a total of 14 sacks and 68 tackles (20 losses), helping the team win two Super Bowl seats, including a victory in the 54th Super Bowl.
