Former Las Vegas Raiders first-round pick Damon Arnette was arrested again after cops found a cocaine substance in his pocket during a traffic stop. This is not a good look for the former NFL player.
According to TMZ Sports, Arnette was pulled over twice in his gray Dodger Charger on Monday night/Tuesday morning in Miami Beach, Florida. Cops found Arnette and a lot more inside.
At the first stop, police say in the documents, they found Arnette had been driving on a suspended license and issued him a citation. According to the documents, officers say they told him he was not allowed to drive the vehicle until his license was reinstated. However, they did say they “permitted another licensed driver to drive the vehicle from the traffic stop.”
Cops, though, claim in the documents that hours later, at around 12:48 AM on Tuesday, they noticed Arnette driving the same car, so they pulled him over again. During that stop, police said in the documents as soon as they verified he was, in fact, the driver of the car. Then they placed him under arrest and cited him for knowingly driving with a suspended license.
During the arrest, the police say they searched Arnette’s person, and found a small bag “containing white powdery substance consistent with that of cocaine” in his front pants pocket. They also found a straw “that was cut into a small piece resembling a device that is common for cocaine usage.”
Arnette at least got some good news regarding his court case in Las Vegas hours later. Prosecutors have dropped the charges against him there. He played in 13 total games since he was drafted. Currently, he’s an NFL-free agent.
