Chiefs cut ex-Raider Damon Arnette after arrest on gun, drug charges

The Chiefs cut recently signed cornerback Damon Arnette on Saturday, hours after he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and other charges, according to reports.

Arnette, a first-round pick of the Raiders in 2020, was booked into the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas overnight Friday on two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, carrying or concealing a gun without a permit, possession of marijuana or cannabis and possession of a class one or two level controlled substance, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The Chiefs then signed Arnette to a reserve/futures deal last week with a commitment to counseling and zero tolerance, according to NFL Network. But his tenure in Kansas City proved to be short-lived as he will no longer get a shot to make the team next season.

The Ohio State product has played in 13 games across two seasons in the NFL.
