Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland was arrested on Tuesday in South Carolina and reportedly facing a slew of charges that include: resisting arrest, possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle, marijuana possession, and driving without a license.
The arrest could result in league discipline and possibly get even worse after TMZ Sports reported officers had to go through extreme measures to bring him into custody.
“Cops say the arresting officer used a taser and a firearm to take Breeland into custody as the NFL player allegedly “attempted to flee the scene.”
Here’s the deal … a York County Sheriff’s deputy claims he saw Breeland and two other men smoking marijuana at a gas station at around 11 AM on Tuesday.
The cop says the men tried to hide the weed when he arrived — with Breeland repeatedly attempting to leave the scene.
The officer says he initially pulled out a taser and began to issue commands to Breeland to stop resisting — but Breeland would not comply. So the officer, “drew his issued firearm and issued more lawful commands to Bashaud Breeland who was concealing his hand.”
The officer says citizens in the area were begging Breeland to “stop resisting” and ultimately the officer was able to put him in handcuffs.”
Cops also say Breeland “had a large amount of cash on him as well.”
Breeland recently re-upped with the Chiefs on a one-year, $4.5MM deal, returning him to the defending champs.
The 28-year-old notched 48 stops, eight passes defended, and a pair of interceptions in the 2019 regular season.
