Chiefs’ defensive end Frank Clark arrested after cops spotted Uzi ‘going out’ in his car

Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark was arrested in Los Angeles after police saw a machine gun in his car, police said Monday.
Clark, 28, was arrested for a vehicle violation south of downtown around 9:20 p.m. Sunday, said Tony Im, LAPD’s public information officer.
“Officers noticed a bag with an Uzi sticking out ‘for everyone to see in the car,’ Im said.
Clark was arrested on suspicion of having a gun concealed in a vehicle, Im said.
He was held in the Los Angeles County Jail and released Monday afternoon on $ 35,000 bail, according to the county sheriff’s inmate’s website.
“We are aware of the matter which will be reviewed as part of the NFL’s personal conduct policy,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.
Clark’s attorney, Alex Spiro, said the gun belonged to Clark’s bodyguard.
Clark, a native of Los Angeles, played his first four NFL seasons with the Seattle Seahawks before being traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2019. He was part of the Chiefs’ Super Bowl-winning squad during season 2019 and has 49 sacks overall in 91 career games.
Clark was previously arrested in 2014 on suspicion of domestic violence following an incident at an Ohio hotel, which led to his dismissal from the University of Michigan team. He ultimately pleaded guilty to a less serious charge of disorderly conduct.
