Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark was arrested for felony illegal possession of a firearm on Sunday in Los Angeles, as first reported by TMZ.

NFL star pass rusher Frank Clark — one of the best defensive players in the league — was arrested Sunday after cops say he had an Uzi in his Lambo SUV ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Clark was pulled over for a routine traffic stop Sunday evening in Los Angeles ... when cops say they noticed an open duffle bag in his ride.

Our sources say officers saw the firearm inside the bag ... and arrested the 28-year-old for felony illegal possession of a firearm.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told The Kansas City Star that he was released Monday afternoon on bond.

McDowell noted Clark was also previously arrested in March on a gun charge during a traffic stop. TMZ added a new piece of information later in the afternoon.

A source close to Clark tells us ... the NFL star claims the weapon belongs to a member of his security team. We’re told attorney Alex Spiro will represent him moving forward in the case.

The Chiefs traded for the 28-year-old in 2019, then signed him to a five-year, $105 million contract. He missed the voluntary phases of the Chiefs’ offseason program but was in attendance for mandatory minicamp last week, speaking to reporters via Zoom on Tuesday.

The Chiefs have not released a statement on the matter at the time of this writing.
