Earlier this week former Tiger and current Kansas City Chief DB, Bashaud Breeland was arrested in York County. Since that story broke, Breeland took to Twitter stating his innocence and now the saga seems to continue.
TMZ has reported additional details that have surfaced over what the scene looked like when authorities stopped and arrested Breeland. The newest report chronicled some of the descriptions from the incident that were included in the arrested records. Some of these details were a little alarming to say the least.
“A York County Sheriff’s deputy claims he saw Breeland and two other men smoking marijuana at a gas station at around 11am on Tuesday. (The officer) says the men tried to hide the weed when he arrived — with Breeland repeatedly attempting to leave the scene. The officer says he initially pulled out a taser and began to issue commands to Breeland to stop resisting — but Breeland would not comply. So the officer, “drew his issued firearm and issued more lawful commands to Bashaud Breeland who was concealing his hand.”
The officer says citizens in the area were begging Breeland to “stop resisting” and ultimately the officer was able to put him in handcuffs. When backup arrived, officers searched Breeland’s car and claim they found a “large marijuana blunt” along with 3.2 grams of weed in the driver door. (Officers) say they also found open bottles of beer and tequila in the car.
(Officers) say Breeland gave deputies permission to look through his cell phone — and they allegedly found “several communications about drug transactions.” According to the arrest report, Breeland told cops he is a “marijuana enthusiast” who simply likes to smoke … the insinuation is that he denies being a drug dealer.”

Breeland had just recently re-signed with Kansas City, a one year deal worth up to $4.5 million. This contract came on the heels of a season that saw Breeland and the Chiefs capture their first Super Bowl title in half a century.
As was reported originally, Bashaud Breeland was a forth round selection of the Washington Redskins out of Clemson in the 2014 NFL Draft. Breeland began his career playing there from 2014-17. He then signed with the Green Bay Packers for the 2018 campaign before joining the Chiefs in 2019.
Breeland played as a defensive back at Clemson from 2011-13 where he finished with 136 tackles, three sacks and six interceptions in his college career. He then opted to leave for the NFL after his junior season.
Breeland was a former three star recruit out of Allendale Fairfax High School in Fairfax, S.C. He was ranked as the #452 overall prospect and #35 safety in the country for the 2010 class. These rankings were according to the 247Sports Composite. He was also the #15 player in South Carolina in that class.
