LAS VEGAS (AP) — NFL cornerback Damon Arnette was arrested in Las Vegas on suspicion of weapons and drug offenses, prompting the Kansas City Chiefs to release him.

Jail records said the 25-year-old was booked Saturday on suspicion of crimes that included assault with a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.

Police said the arrests of Arnette and another man stemmed from a report of a person with a gun Friday at a hotel-casino.

Arnette was jailed pending a court appearance Sunday, and it wasn’t immediately known if he had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

The Las Vegas Raiders released Arnette in November.
