Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark faces felony gun charges from his March arrest.
Los Angeles prosecutors have filed charges on the defensive end with one count of felony possession of an assault weapon. Clark was also arrested last month for having a loaded submachine Uzi in the back of his car. Should he be convicted from his March 2021 arrest, Clark faces up to three years in prison.
Outside of his legal troubles, the NFL could suspend Clark for violating the personal conduct policy.
Kansas City Chiefs: How long could Frank Clark be out with felony gun charges?
Clark is scheduled to be arraigned for the charge stemming from the March arrest on July 14. His June arrest still remains under investigation at this time.
Clark has previously been in trouble before when he played for the Michigan Wolverines. A domestic violence incident in 2014 led to his dismissal from the program.
Even if the charges are dropped or lessened to a misdemeanor, two gun-related incidents in one offseason likely will mean a suspension by the league for Clark. At this time, speculation ranges that he could be suspended 1-3 games for these two incidents. However, that number may be expanded depending on what happens in court this summer.
But there is a strong chance that no matter what happens in the courtroom that Clark is going to miss time because of his legal troubles this offseason when the NFL levies its punishment.
