Chiefs rookie Justin Cox arrested again on domestic violence charges

AP

Get ready for some more paid leave, unless it becomes permanent unpaid leave first.

According to Michael Bonner of the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, Chiefs rookie safety Justin Cox was arrested Monday on aggravated domestic violence charges, along with burglary of a residence and trespassing.

The Chiefs signed Cox as an undrafted rookie from Mississippi State, which means he’ll be easy enough to make an example of just before camp.

According to the Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Office, Cox was arrested yesterday afternoon after an incident at an apartment complex. He’s still in custody and bond hasn’t been set, pending an arraignment today.

It’s his second arrest involving domestic violence in eight months, after similar charges last November. He was suspended after that one and didn’t play in the Bulldogs’ final three games. But after running a 4.36-second 40 at the NFL Scouting Combine, the Chiefs gave him a chance to come to camp.

  1. Well I am a firm believer in second chances but not thirds.

    So cut him and get the next person up to have the blessing to even have a chance to play for an NFL team. And hopefully the next guy won’t foolishly throw it away.

  2. At 4.36 he will get another chance.At 4.75 he would be toast. Talent talks BS walks in the NFL…

  3. What an idiot this Cox guy is. It’s hard to fathom how some people can be so incredibly stupid as to get involved in stuff like this when they can potentially make millions playing football. All they have to do is keep their nose clean and stay out of trouble, but noooooooooo. I have zero sympathy for anyone who is in a position to be wealthy and then decides to throw it away because they’re too dumb to do the right thing.

    Welcome to the Packers.

    Spoken like an accomplished troll…as expected.

    Sad this kid doesn’t get it.

  5. “It’s his second arrest involving domestic violence in eight months, after similar charges last November.”

    Nice pick, Chiefs.

    SMH.

  6. I guess Cox believes in “bird in hand…….” Rather than concentrating on the Bushes where the $$$$$ is. If guilty, the Sap will be watching his bu$he$ burn…

  7. Didn’t we just get a column on the Chiefs becoming bullies? I guess this is what they meant.

  8. With that kind of speed, he may still have a role sprinting bags of emergency pulled pork over to Andy Reid’s office.

  9. We can easily bash him, call him stupid, and say he should cut…

    Or…

    We can wait until we find out he ACTUALLY did something.

    The facts may prove his guilt, but let’s not throw him in jail yet, just in case things didn’t happen the way they seem.

    Ok, we won’t throw him in jail as he is till in there now! Where did you learn to read?

  11. Justin , please choose what you would like to be doing the next ten years.

    A) Playing NFL football making millions of dollars.

    B) Hanging out in prison because I have no self control & want to project my bad A image.

    Justin: I will choose B.

    Thanks for playing Justin !!

  12. Got in trouble, went undrafted, got ANOTHER chance, and threw it away.

    Welcome to the NFL, circa 2015.

    The next line he will be learning is “Welcome to McDonalds, may I take your order?”

  13. Nice pick, Chiefs.

    Apparently the Toronto public schools aren’t high on reading comprehension skills. Cox was an undrafted rookie as stated in the article.
    SMH.

    Maybe a poor choice of words on my part, but I was referring to the court of public opinion finding everyone guilty after they’ve read a headline… if he’s guilty, fine, but we don’t know anything yet. That’s my point.

    But, way to focus on that one little bit and then blast away. Where did you learn your reading “comprehension”?

    The optimism is great but it is aggravated domestic assault, burglary, AND trespassing. The “domestic” part means it was a relation who would easily identify him. I’d say it’s pretty unlikely we see an article pulling the whole thing back.
