Chiefs lineman Buggs again arrested in Alabama


Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs has been arrested for the second time in a month after he was booked on a domestic violence/burglary charge in Alabama on Sunday morning and released, according to online records.

Tuscaloosa County jail records show Buggs was released on $5,000 bond. No further details about the arrest were available.

On May 30, Buggs turned himself in after he was charged with two misdemeanor counts of second-degree animal cruelty in Tuscaloosa. Two dogs under his care — a pitbull and a rottweiler mix — were found to be neglected and severely malnourished. One of the dogs had to be euthanized.

Buggs’ agent, Trey Robinson, has alleged his client is a victim of an ongoing “subversive campaign” to force the closure of the hookah lounge he owns in Tuscaloosa.

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 Chiefs re-signed Buggs to a futures contract in February.

It continues a tumultuous offseason for the Chiefs.

Wide receiver Rashee Rice is facing eight felony charges, including six counts of collision involving injury, following a six-vehicle crash March 30 on a Dallas highway. Offensive linemen Chukwuebuka Godrick and Wanya Morris were arrested last month in Johnson County, Kansas, on misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
