NFL fans react to Chiefs' unending offseason woes as DT Isaiah Buggs gets arrested - "Side effects of being Super Bowl champions"

The Kansas City Chiefs, the defending back-to-back Super Bowl champions, simply cannot catch a break when it comes to their players avoiding legal issues.

On Sunday, defensive tackle Isaiah Buggs was arrested for domestic violence and burglary in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This is where he played FBS football for the Crimson Tide in 2017 and 2018. The bond for his release has been set at $5,000.

He had been arrested back in May for two instances of animal cruelty before being released on a $600 bond.

Fans were very displeased at the turn of events:

"Chiefs are having worst offseason of all time," one fan said.
"What is happening in that facility?" another despairingly asked.
"Just another day in Chief land," yet another's sarcasm went.

Buggs, however, is not the only Chief to have faced criminal charges this offseason. The first, and so far the most high-profile, has been Rashee Rice.

On March 30, the 2023 second-round wide receiver was involved in a multi-vehicle collision in Dallas (he had played college football for SMU in the suburb of University Park). Four days later, he met with Dallas police and issued this statement:

“I take full responsibility for my part in this matter and will continue to cooperate with the necessary authorities. I sincerely apologize to everyone impacted in Saturday’s accident.”

A week later, an arrest warrant was issued for Rice for the following crimes:

  • One count of aggravated assault
  • One count of collision involving serious bodily injury
  • Six counts of collision involving injuries

He surrendered to Glenn Heights police the next day and was sent to jail in DeSoto before being released on bail. He was also later suspected of attacking a photographer at a club in Dallas, but was never formally charged, and the alleged victim also declined to press charges.

An incident report obtained by WFAA, ABC's affiliate in Dallas, revealed that Rice had 10.8 grams of marijuana in the Lamborghini Urus that he had been leasing. Possession of such an amount constitutes a Class B misdemeanor in Texas. But he would not be the last Chief to be found having the drug.

On May 17, just over a week before Buggs' first arrest, offensive tackles Wanya Morris and Chukwuebuka Godrick were caught having marijuana in Johnson County, Kansas. Both would eventually be released after paying a $2,500 bond.
