The Kansas City Chiefs confirmed to CBS News on Saturday they have released cornerback Damon Arnette. The 25-year-old was arrested in Las Vegas on Friday.
Arnette is facing two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of carrying or concealing a weapon without a permit and two drug possession charges, records from the Clark County Detention Center show.
His arrest came after a dispute involving a gun was reported at Park MGM on Las Vegas Boulevard shortly before 6 p.m. Friday, according to CBS affiliate KLAS. Markell Surrell, 20, also was arrested and charged with carrying or concealing a weapon without a permit.
The two made bail Saturday morning and are scheduled to appear in court on March 29, KLAS reports.
