Chiefs linebacker Willie Gay Jr. was arrested Wednesday night in connection with a misdemeanor criminal damage case, according to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, via KCTV. The 23-year-old was arrested around 10:30 p.m. in Overland Park, Kansas, and booked into the Johnson County Detention Center, where he is scheduled for arraignment on Thursday afternoon.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Gay’s representative, Maxx Lepselter, said he was visiting his son. Gay and his son’s mother got into an argument, during which he broke her vacuum.
“No one was touched … beyond the broken appliance,” said Lepselter.
Gay was charged with destruction of property of less than $1,000. Per a District Court of Johnson County affidavit (via NFL.com), the damaged property included the vacuum, a wall and door frame. The affidavit also states that the class B non-person misdemeanor “constitutes a domestic violence offense.”
