Defensive Lineman Isaiah Buggs of Kansas City Chiefs Arrested

The Kansas City Chiefs are releasing defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs this week following a pair of offseason arrests.

Citing NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero, reported that the back-to-back defending Super Bowl champions are parting ways with the 27-year-old player after his latest arrest last week on a charge for domestic violence and burglary in Tuscaloosa County, Ala.

Buggs was previously arrested on May 29 on misdemeanor animal cruelty charges, which his agent Trey Robinson said the player “vehemently denies.”

He was taken into custody after two severely malnourished dogs were found in an Alabama home he was renting, according to civil records obtained by Tuscaloosa Patch and 247Sports. The former University of Alabama player was released the next day on a $600 bond.

Weeks later, on June 16, Buggs was initially released from Tuscaloosa County Jail after posting a $5,000 bond in relation to his domestic violence and burglary charge. But Pelissero reported that the bond was “revoked after his most recent arrest and he’s currently in jail as multiple legal cases play out.”

Tuscaloosa County Jail records reviewed by PEOPLE show Buggs remains in custody at this time.
