CB Bashaud Breeland chiefs released on bail after South Carolina arrest


Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland was arrested on several occasions in York County, South Carolina on Tuesday, said a sheriff’s officer.

Breeland was released from prison Tuesday night on $ 2,362.50 bail.

According to the arrest report, a sheriff’s officer saw three people smoking marijuana in Fort Mill, S.C. When the officer approached, the three attempted to leave. The officer saw one of the other suspects throw a free kick in Breeland’s car. Breeland attempted to flee after being informed by the officer that he was being detained. The officer attempted to place handcuffs on Breeland, who then moved away.

The officer said Breeland pushed him, and the officer then fired a taser. Breeland continued to resist and tried to get into his car and leave. He got into the car, where the officer said he could not see Breeland’s hands. The officer then pulled out a gun and Breeland put his hands up and was eventually handcuffed.

While searching Breeland’s car, the officer found a blunt weighing 1.3 grams, other marijuana weighing about 3.2 grams, two open bottles of Corona beer and an open bottle of Boss.

Breeland, 28, faces charges of resistance to arrest, alcohol in a motor vehicle with a broken seal, having an open container of beer or wine in a motor vehicle, possession of 28 grams or less of marijuana or 10 grams of hashish and unlicensed driving.

He explained his side of what happened in a pair of tweets, claiming that he had been approached by “two guys” who had thrown something at his car.

Breeland gave the agent permission to watch through his phone. The officer said he found several communications about the drug deals. Breeland told the officer that he loved smoking marijuana and was passionate about marijuana.

The chiefs said they were aware of the situation but would have no further comments. Breeland agent Brad Leshnock did not return a message requesting comment.

After four seasons with the Washington Redskins and one with the Green Bay Packers, Breeland joined the Chiefs on a year-long free agent contract last season. He started 15 regular season games, plus three in the playoffs. Breeland was caught in the Chiefs’ Super Bowl LIV victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Breeland recently signed another one-year contract with the Chiefs again.
