8:58 AM PT — The Chiefs have released Damon Arnette.
More troubling news for NFL player Damon Arnette … the former 1st round draft pick was arrested Friday night in Las Vegas after he allegedly threatened a valet with a gun, TMZ Sports has learned.
The 25-year-old cornerback was busted for assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a controlled substance after a dispute allegedly occurred at the Park MGM on Las Vegas Boulevard.
It’s unclear what drug Arnette allegedly had on him.
A witness tells us Damon attempted to retrieve a car without a valet ticket … leading to a dispute. We’re told Arnette pulled a gun, and the police were eventually called.
This is just the latest issue with the former Ohio State star. Arnette was cut by the Raiders in November after a video surfaced appearing to show Damon threatening someone with a gun.
