Bashaud Breeland Facing Multiple Charges
The arrest comes just weeks after Breeland inked a one-year, $4.5 million dollar contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. Breeland was a key piece on the Chiefs’ defense in 2019 and the team was looking forward to having him back next season. According to reports, the Chiefs have been notified of the incident.
Breeland was coming off of a big year in 2019 prior to the arrest. The veteran defensive back recorded 48 tackles, eight passes defended, and two interceptions on the way to winning his first Super Bowl. Breeland played well in the Super Bowl as well for Kansas City. Bashaud finished with seven combined tackles and one interception in the contest.
After being drafted in 2014, Breeland spent four years with the Washington Redskins. While in Washington, Breeland showed NFL teams that he could be a consistent starter in the league. In 2018, Breeland and the Carolina Panthers agreed to a lucrative long-term deal, but Breeland failed a physical, voiding the contract. He then went on to sign a one-year deal with the Green Bay Packers. After just one season with Green Bay, Breeland eventually found himself a home in Kansas City.
Up until around midnight, Breeland had stayed quiet on social media. But in the early morning hours of Wednesday, Breeland gave us his take on the situation. Breeland claims he was filling up at a South Carolina gas station when two men spotted him. He then says the two men proceeded to approach his vehicle. As this happened, supposedly a police officer pulled up to the gas station. At this point, the two men threw an unnamed object into his car. Breeland then says he was detained and was wrongfully charged. The York County Sheriff’s Office has not released a statement regarding Breeland’s side of the encounter. The Kansas City Chiefs have declined to comment at this time.
