Chiefs' DE Frank Clark pleads 'not guilty' to gun charges

The former Super Bowl winner has found himself on the wrong side of the law.

Update:
Kansas City Chief's DE Frank Clark has pleaded not guilty to two charges of possession of a concealed weapon and is awaiting his preliminary hearing.

After two separate incidents involving a firearm the Chiefs' player could be in some trouble.

Chiefs' Clark pleads not guilty

According to the L.A. County district attorney's office, Kansas City Chiefs' DE Frank Clark pleaded 'not guilty' on Monday in Los Angeles, to two counts of possession of an assault weapon. The pleas are related to two incidents that occurred in March and June of this year. On both occasions Clark was arrested on suspicion of having a concealed firearm in his vehicle. Clark's preliminary hearing is scheduled for January 17th

What are Frank Clark's options?

Should Clark be convicted of a felony could serve up to three years in prison. On the other hand the district attorney has indicated that it is still unclear what sentence the department will ultimately seek.

What was Clark previously arrested for?

Clark was arrested in March, along with another man. At the time - according to California Highway Patrol records - officers discovered two loaded weapons in his vehicle after a traffic stop. Clark who was a member of the well known "legion of boom" was also arrested in June in Los Angeles in a separate incident again involving a firearm. This time police officers saw a sub-machine gun in his car. It was alleged at the time by Clark's attorney, Alex Spiro that the gun belonged to Clark's bodyguard.

Clark has in fact had more brushes with the law before these two incidents as he was arrested for home invasion in 2012 and domestic violence in 2014, after a dispute with his girlfriend in a hotel in Ohio. In July, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office charged Clark with one felony weapons violation tied to his arrest in March.

What's next for Frank Clark?

A Super Bowl Winner in 2019, Clark was coy on details regarding his legal troubles in a recent interview. ""My legal team is taking care of everything," he said. "I've been advised not to speak on it until further notice. My legal team is taking care of everything and I have full confidence in everything they're doing."

Clark, who is a native of Los Angeles, has only featured in one game this season having struggled with a hamstring injury.
