Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland was arrested on Tuesday on multiple charges, including possession of marijuana. He is accused of smoking weed with two men at a gas station in South Carolina.
Things got interesting when Breeland attempted to flee the scene. According to TMZ Sports the arresting officer had to use a taser to complete the arrest.
“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.
When backup arrived, officers searched Breeland’s car and claim they found a “large marijuana blunt” along with 3.2 grams of weed in the driver door.”
Breeland's story is a little different. In a tweet he would later delete, he claims that two guys threw stuff in his car as police pulled up.
Maybe it's the weed, but something sounds a little off about Breeland's story.
