On the field, the Kansas City Chiefs have been nothing short of excellent over the past two seasons, winning back-to-back Super Bowl championships. But off of it, the organization has had its fair share of controversies, which only grew this weekend regarding troubled defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs.

Buggs was recently arrested at the end of last month on animal cruelty charges after two dogs were found looking “extremely malnourished emaciated and neglected” on a rental property he was staying at.

On Sunday, Buggs got into even more trouble with law enforcement, getting arrested yet again after being accused of dragging the mother of his child down a set of stairs and injuring her.

TMZ obtained the court documents of this arrest, detailing that the woman told police Buggs broke into her residence in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with a tire iron early Sunday morning and then went upstairs to confront her. The woman then claimed Buggs dragged her down the stairs. The woman had several injuries following the incident, including scratch marks on her wrist and several broken toenails.

Buggs was ultimately charged with domestic violence and burglary for the incident. TMZ reached out to Buggs’ agent for comment on this matter but were not given any sort of statement.

This is incredibly concerning to have a player continuously getting himself into trouble. You have to wonder whether the Chiefs front office is considering looking to part ways with Buggs after this latest incident for obvious reasons.

Buggs is also not the only Chiefs player who has had multiple run-ins with the law this offseason. Chiefs star wide receiver Rashee Rice first had a run-in after a high-speed crash earlier this offseason and later in an assault at a Dallas nightclub last month.
