Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Justyn Ross was taken into custody on Monday on a felony charge of criminal damage exceeding $25,000, according to the report from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office booking and release. The Chiefs informed ESPN on Monday evening that they were aware of the arrest but declined to provide any further comment at this time.
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report states that Ross was booked on Monday afternoon after his arrest in Shawnee, Kansas. As per ESPN, no bond has been set in this case. This 23-year-old wide receiver has managed to catch three passes for a total of 34 yards in the seven games he has played this season. In the recent 31-17 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Ross was on the field for 25% of the Chiefs’ offensive plays, but he was not targeted by quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the passing game.
Justyn Ross joined the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent from Clemson in 2022. Although he impressed during rookie training camp, he had to be placed on injured reserve due to a foot injury, causing him to miss the entire season.
