NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports that Breeland was already facing a four-game suspension for a separate violation prior to this week’s incidents.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo added that there is almost no doubt that Breeland misses time on the field.

The Kansas City Star’s Sam Mellinger says that teams were considering Breeland’s impending suspension during free agency.

Bashaud Breeland faces multiple charges in South Carolina

According to a report published by ESPN’s Adam Teicher, Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland was arrested in York County, South Carolina on Tuesday — and is now facing multiple charges.

Breeland, 28, faces charges of resisting arrest, having alcohol in a motor vehicle with the seal broken, having an open container of beer or wine in a motor vehicle, possession of 28 grams or less of marijuana or 10 grams of hash, and driving without a license.

Teicher reported that the Chiefs said they were “aware of the situation” but would have no further comment.

Now entering his seventh NFL season, Breeland was a significant part of the Chiefs team that finished the season with a Super Bowl win, starting 15 games. He allowed a completion percentage of only 48.4%, a passer rating of just 92.2 and intercepted two passes in the regular season. In Super Bowl LIV, he collected seven tackles, a second-quarter interception and a pass defensed.

Breeland first joined the Chiefs a year ago on a single-season contract. In the offseason, he was widely expected to find a multi-year free agent deal with another team. But on March 19, the Chiefs re-signed their cornerback to another one-year deal worth up to $5 million.
