Within the criminal justice system, Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark faces charges that could put him in prison for up to three years. Clark also needs to be concerned about the NFL’s justice system.

“We have been monitoring all developments in the matter which is under review of the personal conduct policy,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told PFT via email early Friday evening.

Ultimately, Clark faces discipline from the league based on the substantive allegation of felony possession of an assault weapon. Beyond the fact that he can’t play if incarcerated, the NFL could suspend him without pay.

The fact that Clark has been charged with a felony subjects Clark to the possibility of paid leave. The quote from the league came in direct response to a question from PFT as to whether the case is being evaluated for potential paid leave.

  1. The NFL should be put on notice for their continued negligence of turning a blind eye to so many of their scumbag players.

  2. This dude should’ve gone to jail when he hit his girlfriend in college. Unreal he’s been in the league this long. Dude has for sure been up to no good for a long time.

  3. Anyone else not surprised it’s the Chiefs organization AGAIN with this crap?

  4. It is ALWAYS a right for those who have chosen to adult to buy, possess, carry, and sell a tool that shoots projectiles. Assault is a behavior, not a gun. Learn Natural Law and Self Ownership please. Geez the sheeples really come out on this site.

  5. What’s there to monitor? He’ll get a slap on the wrist and life will go on

  6. Frank Clark had very sketchy character concerns from his college days for beating his girlfriend, so is this kind of thing a surprise? Anyone in the psych field would tell you that past and present behavior is the best predictor of future behavior.

  7. All Frank Clark has to do is become owner of the team, and all charges will be dropped.
    In fact, any investigation will be dropped or destroyed.

  8. A dude who is gonna make $18m dollars this year was riding around with a MFn UZI in his duffel bag. Like what on earth is this dude thinking? Where are you going that you need an Uzi? And then consider that maybe you shouldn’t be going there. Truth is, he doesn’t need it & he knows it. He’s trying to look tough.. I’m not in the boat that NfL pLaYeRs ArE sCuMbAgS but the stupidity of this is almost impressive. Doesn’t he have a separate him charge also this off-season?

  9. This guy is not suspended yet? What kind of “evidence” exactly do you need? Given the history in the KC facility, you’d think they would take a zero tolerance policy against guns.

  10. I don’t understand what the crime was here. There are several ways this could have constituted a felony. Was it a full-auto weapon? Is he a convicted felon or domestic abuser and therefore barred by law from owning or carrying guns? Was he in some communist state like Jersey or NY or Massachusetts? Because having an Uzi sitting on your front seat isn’t a crime in rational states like Missouri or Kansas. Shouldn’t be a problem, as long as it’s a semi-auto version. And it should be semi-auto because I doubt even his security detail is licensed to carry full-auto weapons. Nobody should face a felony just for having a gun.

  11. Tyreek didn’t spend a day in prison for breaking that lil boy’s arm. Smh

  12. No one has yet to clarify if it was a semi-auto version or fully automatic. Uzi makes both,huge difference in the ownership and permit between the two, as well as punishment for illegal possession of automatic vs semi.

  13. I thought Tyreek Hill and Britt Reid were the worst members of the Chiefs. Guess I was wrong.

    Please explain how it is rational for anyone to have an Uzi laying on their front seat. Why is it necessary for you to carry around a semiautomatic weapon? The maximum theoretical shooting rate for semiautomatics is 138 times per minute.

    Don’t talk to us about esoteric laws or your supposed rights. Instead, talk to us about reality and morality. Describe the reality where you could possibly have any good use for such a weapon. Tell us how it is moral to possess a weapon that can so rapidly extinguish human or animal life.

    Saw off a shotgun below 18 inches and then call the cops over. Let them know your rights before they read you yours. What you think are your rights do not override the law.

    He was arrested in California. Uzi’s are one of the banned weapons per California’s Assault Weapons Control Act.

    Because he didn’t do it. It’s easily verifiable if you try. Please stop spreading untruths.

    In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: The police, who investigate crime, and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders.

    sounds like hes just started his journey through the system. Why not withhold judgement until he’s completed his trip.

  20. An Uzi is a full automatic weapon. It is illegal, along with the AK47. Contrary to what the ignorant believe, an AR22 is NOT an automatic weapon. It is a semi automatic, like gazillions of other .22 weapons. Sticking a handle on a .22 doesn’t turn it into a military grade weapon. AR doesn’t stand for “assault rifle”, either. It is the name of the manufacturer. We shall see if being a pro football player cuts him any special treatment. Most of us would see hard time for possession of an Uzi.

    No, he didn’t. The boy’s mother, who turned out to be lying about everything, said that to Tyreek in a conversation she recording trying to bait him.

    Once again, please either inform yourself or stop spreading lies.

    Yeah….the kid broke his own arm. And you probably also believe Tyreek never assaulted the mom when she was pregnant too.

    What I believe is that you have no idea what actually happened and are repeating things that were proven false by the local authorities. Folks like me who live in the KC area actually followed the investigation to it’s conclusion. Keyboard cowboys who insist on spreading untruth obviously did not.

  24. forget the firearm… paid leave?
    .
    in most instances i an not impressed with the NFLPA, but they knocked this out of the park for players.

  25. “ringheadcrusher” are you at all familiar with California gun laws? People from bordering states know all the horror stories from drivers who forgot to store their guns and remove the ammunition when crossing into CA.

    You have some good information here and some bad. MOST Uzis in America are semi-autos. They are 100% legal. And semi-auto AKs are also 100% legal, and owned by millions of Americans. There are semi-auto versions of almost any type of weapon available on the civilian market. We have STILL not seen whether or not Clark’s Uzi was full-auto, HOWEVER, I think it’s safe to say it was NON full-auto, or he would be facing a lot more jail time than just 3 years in CA.

    There is no such thing as an AR22. However, an AR15 is similar to an Uzi in that it can be both an automatic or a semi-automatic. AR stands for Armalite, the manufacturer that “invented” the gun, or at least adapted the M16 for civilian use. You are correct in stating it uses a .22-cal bullet, which is a LOT more than most people know about the AR. But the story of the AR15’s .223/5.56 NATO round is quite a bit more complicated than that.

  27. I wonder what this forum would be saying if it was the Patriots! NFL has a double standard when it comes to the Chiefs.
