Kansas City Chief’s Frank Clark Suspended Two Games Following Gun Possession Charges
Kansas City defensive end Frank Clark will face a two-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, according to NFL.com.
Clark’s suspension follows his no contest plea in September to two counts of misdemeanor possession of an assault weapon.
Clark was given one year of probation and community service as part of his court plea. 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 of a car Clark was in because it did not have a front 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, and they say they discovered an uzi firearm sticking out of an open duffle bag in his Lamborghini SUV.
Clark’s legal team claimed the guns did not belong to Clark but rather a member of his security team.
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 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. He has three sacks this season in seven games.
