I’m sure all Chiefs fans have seen the reports by now; it is hard not to. On Monday, June 20th, Frank Clark was arrested for what seems to be the possession of a sub-machine gun. Clark has had some troubles off the field before, not necessarily for the same thing, though.
In November of 2014, when Clark was still a Michigan Wolverine, he was arrested for domestic violence. However, the woman did not pursue charges against the defensive lineman.
In 2012, Mr. Clark was arrested for second-degree home invasion. In this situation, he broke into a dorm room and stole a laptop. However, his charges would not be dropped, and instead, he paid a fine of near $2,000. As much as we may like Frank Clark the Shark, he has a history of off-the-field issues.
Clark to be at Chiefs Training Camp
With the recent situation involving number 55, there were questions about his availability for this season. Luckily, the all-pro defensive end does not have court until October. By that time, the 6’3″ starter will have played at least three games, barring nothing too serious happens.
However, head coach Andy Reid had some words on the situation that would help give Chiefs fans just a little more clarity on the upcoming season:
“Frank will be here and we’ll go forward with that. Obviously, we keep tabs on it and his people will keep tabs on their side of it, and we move forward. So, that’s where we’re at now. But he will be here — not now, but in a couple of days here when the veterans come in.”
At least with Clark being able to attend the Chiefs training camp starting July 28th, he will be able to get his mind and body right for the season. No true distraction. Just the players and coaches in St. Joseph, Missouri. Hopefully, for the three games he should play for Kansas City, he can make a big impact.
