Several reports have confirmed that former Las Vegas Raiders cornerback Damon Arnette was indicted last week by a grand jury in Vegas on assault with a deadly weapon and other illegal firearm violations.
According to reports, Arnette allegedly brandished a weapon at a valet at Park MGM when he produced a ticket to retrieve his vehicle. One attendant told authorities then that they thought Arnette “was going to shoot him and his manager” after hearing the “sound of a gun cocking.”
“I guess he didn’t know where his valet ticket was, he couldn’t find it,” a Metro police officer told the grand jury. “They didn’t want to give him his valet ticket and he got upset and produced a firearm and took the keys.”
Arnette was drafted in the 2020 NFL Draft in the first round by the Raiders. The 26-year-old signed a reserve/futures contract with the Kansas City Chiefs but was released from his contract a little more than a week later after catching these charges.
Arnette’s next court appearance is scheduled for May 24.
