Defensive end Frank Clark was sentenced to 1-year of probation along with 40 hours of community service on Thursday. Clark entered a no contest plea to the two counts of misdemeanor possession of an assault weapon. The Associated Press reports that Clark will be required to show proof that he has completed his sentence upon returning to court in 2023.

Clark’s sentence follows various incidents that took place in 2021. The first occurred in March, when police initiated a traffic stop due to a vehicle, Clark was in, not having a license plate. The defensive end was arrested after police said they found two loaded firearms in the car.

The second arrest occurred in June of 2021. Police arrested the 29-year-old after he was pulled over for a code violation, again discovering a firearm in his vehicle. Clark’s legal troubles didn’t just begin after entering the NFL. The defensive end’s troubles with the law extend further back, all the way into his college days.

In 2014, Clark was reportedly arrested for alleged domestic battery. His time with the Michigan Wolverines came to an abrupt end as a result of that arrest. Clark also pled guilty to not only to a felony home invasion charge but also, a charge of disorderly conduct, per Jack Baer of Yahoo Sports. Clark is a former 2015 second-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks, and spent four seasons with the team. The eight-year veteran is now entering his fourth year with the Kansas City Chiefs.
