NFL player Frank Clark was arrested in Los Angeles on Sunday after police said they saw a submachine gun in his vehicle, a Los Angeles Police Department said.
“Yesterday at about 9:20 p.m., Mr. Clark was pulled over in the area of Grand and Adams for a vehicle code violation,” the spokesperson said Monday. “At this time, officers observed a bag with an Uzi sticking out.”
Clark, 28, and three passengers were taken out of the vehicle, the LAPD spokesman said. Clark was arrested for allegedly possessing a concealed firearm in a vehicle, the spokesperson said.
Clark was booked into Los Angeles County jail on Monday morning and was released at 2:30pm on $35,000 bond, according to booking details from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Clark’s attorney said the firearm belonged to the bodyguard.
Clark, a Los Angeles native, was drafted in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft.
A two-time Pro Bowl player, Clark is entering his seventh season in the NFL and has spent three years with the Kansas City Chiefs. Clark was on the Chief’s Super Bowl-winning team in 2020. Prior to joining the Chiefs, Clark spent four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.
The Chiefs are on a month long break following their mandatory minicamp, which concluded June 17, according to the team’s schedule.
