According to reports, Gay was arrested on Wednesday night in a misdemeanor criminal damage case and booked into the Johnson County Detention Center while he awaits bond.
There are very few details about the arrest, but KCTV-5 reports Gay allegedly damaged a vacuum cleaner, wall, and door frame during an argument with a woman. The case is being classified as a domestic violence offense.
FOX4 KC adds:
According to charging documents, Gay faces one count of criminal damage of less than $1,000 for damage to property including a vacuum cleaner, wall and a door frame and the incident is domestic violence related.
Gay has a court appearance scheduled for 2:30 p.m. local time on Thursday.
His manager said,”Willie was at his son’s house visiting. He and the mother got into an argument during which he broke her vacuum. No one was touched, nothing happened beyond broken appliance. She called cops about it and they took him in on misdemeanor destruction of property of less than $1000. Likely just pays a fine and replaces vacuum. Nothing more, all should be resolved today with no further issues.
“We will confirm once this is fully resolved today. ”
Whether the Chiefs discipline Gay for the off-field incident remains to be seen. Kansas City hosts the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, January 23 at 6:30 p.m. ET.
