Kansas City Chiefs Wide Receiver Justyn Ross Arrested for Alleged Criminal Damage

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Justyn Ross was arrested in suburban Kansas City on Monday, facing allegations of causing criminal damage exceeding $25,000, as detailed in a booking report from the Johnson County, Kansas sheriff’s office.

The report does not provide specifics about the incident or mention any bond arrangements. The Chiefs acknowledged Ross’s arrest but have refrained from commenting further.

Justyn Ross, 23, initially joined the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent. He missed the entire previous season due to foot surgery but has participated in all seven games of the current season, amassing three receptions for 34 yards.

Ross gained recognition while playing for Clemson, contributing to their college football national championship victory in 2018. During his freshman year, he made 46 receptions for 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns. His sophomore season was also highly productive. However, he missed his entire junior year due to a congenital fusion condition in his neck and spinal region, necessitating career-threatening surgery.

Despite his triumphant return to Clemson in 2021, where he recorded 47 receptions for 524 yards and three touchdowns, few NFL teams were willing to medically clear him for play. The Chiefs were among the teams willing to provide him with an opportunity.
