Chiefs WR Justyn Ross Arrested on Felony Criminal Damage Charge

As the Kansas City Chiefs shift their focus from the Los Angeles Chargers to the Denver Broncos, something off the field has also popped up on the radar.
Justin Ross, a sophomore, was arrested at 2:54 p.m., according to a booking and release report on the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office website Monday. Shawnee, KS placed the order at 4:27 PM.
Charged with criminal damage to property over $25,000.
These charges, which can change as the legal process progresses, are classified as level 7 felonies in Kansas.
According to the reservation and release information mentioned above, the comments section contains the description “DV”, so it may be related to the following.
He was arrested on Monday for domestic violence.
No bond had been set or listed for Ross when the report was posted on the website.

According to ESPN’s Adam Teicher, executives said Monday night that they were “aware of the arrest but had no comment.” Teicher also said a hearing is scheduled for Ross on Tuesday.

In seven games with the Chiefs this season, Ross has played a total of 81 offensive snaps (17% of KC’s offense). In that game, he was targeted six times and caught three passes for 34 yards and no touchdowns.
The former Clemson star came out of training camp with the team this summer after recovering from an injury in 2022, drawing praise from quarterback Patrick Mahomes and coach Andy Reid.
Hours before Ross’ arrest Monday afternoon, Reed spoke about the 23-year-old’s increased workload.

“We’re trying to get that here,” Reed said.
“I know he doesn’t have it, but he’s been in a few plays.
In my opinion, the more the merrier.
“He has a lot of talent and we want to develop him further.”
