Kansas City Chiefs Defensive End Frank Clark was arrested on Sunday for illegal possession of a concealed weapon.

What We Know:

  • Clark, 28, was in Los Angles, CA when LAPD pulled him over for a vehicle code violation. The officer saw an Uzi sticking out of a bag in Clark’s backseat. Clark was in the vehicle with three other passengers at the time of the arrest. He was released on a $35,000 bond, which according to Spolin Law P.C., is the bond amount for possession of a loaded firearm in California.
  • Under Penal Code 30510 PC, Uzi submachine guns are considered assault weapons and per Penal Code 30600 PC, assault weapons are illegal in the state of California. Recently US District Judge Roger Benitez, overturned California’s assault weapon ban, calling it unconstitutional. He compared an AR-15 to a Swiss Army knife and claimed more people have died from the COVID-19 vaccine than from mass shootings in the state. His call to overturn the ban on assault weapons can’t go into effect until the state’s appeal court makes a ruling.
  • This is Clark’s second arrest in California in the last three months. In March, he was pulled over because his vehicle did not showcase a front license plate. Police noticed a part of a weapon sticking out of a bag and then recovered two guns- a handgun and rifle- inside the bag. Both guns were loaded and he was released on a $35,000 bond the following day.
  • In 2014, Clark was arrested for domestic violence and assault while staying at a hotel in Ohio. He was able to get the charges reduced and pled guilty to disorderly conduct. Due to these actions, Clark was removed from the University of Michigan’s football team his senior year. He continued workouts at various training facilities and sought counseling.
  • Clark was the Seattle Seahawks’ 63rd pick in the 2015 NFL draft and played for the organization for four seasons. He had a record of 35 sacks and 136 tackles for the Seahawks. Clark was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in April 2019, for the first-round draft choice in 2019 and a second-rounder in 2020.
  • Since playing with the Chiefs, Clark has been chosen for the NFL Pro Bowl twice and was a part of the Chiefs Super Bowl-winning team in 2020. When traded to the Chiefs, Clark signed a five-year $104 million contract with the team and is guaranteed $63.5 million. He has had 14 sacks and 66 tackles since starting with the Chiefs.
  • The Chiefs just wrapped up a mandatory minicamp and are aware of Clark’s arrest. Brian McCarthy, an NFL spokesperson, stated that the organization is reviewing Clark’s actions “under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.” 610 Sports host Carrington Harrison believes that the Chiefs will most likely keep Clark on the roaster, but if he is charged with felony gun possession then he likely won’t start in Game 1.

Alex Spiro, Clark’s lawyer, claims that the gun in question belongs to one of Clark’s bodyguards. Clark is set to be in court on October 18th.
