The NFL has suspended Chiefs player Frank Clark for two games for violating the league’s personal conduct rules. The punishment comes as Clark was arrested twice in Los Angeles last year for possession of a concealed firearm. Last September, the 29-year-old refused to contest a pair of misdemeanor charges, received a year of unofficial probation and 40 hours of community service. CBS Los Angeles.
Since Clark rectified his legal situation last month, this allowed the NFL to review the case in its entirety and now found that he violated the policy of conduct, resulting in the suspension. The Chiefs are looking forward to Week 8, so Clarke will miss the Week 9 game against the Titans and the Week 10 game against the Jaguars. His first game with the team comes on November 20, when Kansas City travel to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers in Week 11.
Clark was arrested twice in the 2021 off-season, once in March and in June. In March, he was arrested during a routine traffic stop after police saw two loaded guns in the car. He posted $35,000 bail in this incident. In June, he was arrested for possession of a concealed firearm after law enforcement spotted an Uzi in a duffel bag. Clark claimed it belonged to a member of his security team, but was arrested and eventually released on $35,000 bail.
Clark has started in all seven games for the Chiefs this season and has 15 tackles and three sacks to his credit.
