Kansas City Chiefs Linebacker Wille Gay is days away from a showdown with Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills offense. Unfortunately, his status for Sunday’s game has been put in jeopardy after a run-in with police on Wednesday evening. Adam Teicher of ESPN has reported that Gay was arrested in Overland Park, Kansas on Wednesday night and charged with misdemeanor criminal property damage. Now, he must appear before a judge in court this Thursday. According to Gigstad Law Office, LLC in Kansas, Gay’s current charge carries a potential sentence of up to six months in jail.
The Kansas City Chiefs have not commented on the matter, but they did inform reporters that they are aware of Gay’s legal predicament.
Gay is a former U.S. Army All-American and SEC standout defensive player. After a successful career at Mississippi State University, Gay entered the 2020 NFL Draft and was selected by the Chiefs in the second round. In his second season with the team, Gay has started in 11 regular season games. He also played in the team’s wild card weekend win against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday.
