SJ - January 29, 2022

Former Raiders first-round pick Damon Arnette is back making headlines for his off the field behavior.  He was arrested on Friday night in Las Vegas after he allegedly pulled a gun on a valet.

Arnette's latest incident caused the Chiefs, who he recently signed a deal with, to release him.

From TMZ Sports:

The 25-year-old cornerback was busted for assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a controlled substance after a dispute allegedly occurred at the Park MGM on Las Vegas Boulevard.

It's unclear what drug Arnette allegedly had on him.

A witness tells us Damon attempted to retrieve a car without a valet ticket ... leading to a dispute. We're told Arnette pulled a gun, and the police were eventually called.

Arnette is quickly approaching the upper echelon of NFL Draft busts.  You know Ryan Leaf and JaMarcus Russell territory.  This dude apparently can't keep it together.
