CelebnSports247.com reports that Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark pleaded not guilty Monday in Los Angeles to two counts of possession of an assault weapon.
The L.A. County district attorney’s office said that if convicted, Clark could face up to three years in prison.
A day after a Chiefs victory in Philadelphia, defensive end Frank Clark entered a not guilty plea in Los Angeles to two counts of possession of an assault weapon.
Two days later, on Wednesday afternoon, Clark was back at Chiefs practice, trying to get his hamstring healthy enough to play for the first time in three weeks.
Meanwhile, another court date looms. Clark is due back in court on Jan. 17 — during a potential playoff run.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Wednesday:
Listen, when he’s in the building, he’s good. I’m sure that’s on his mind. I’m sure. When he’s here, he’s about football and trying to make sure he’s doing his job to the best of his ability. And getting healthy right now, that’s the primary thing. I think he’s in a pretty good place with that.
In July, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office charged Clark with one felony weapons violation stemming from his arrest in March.
The NFL previously said it was reviewing the incidents under its personal conduct policy.
Clark wouldn’t go into detail about his legal situation in a recent interview, the only one he’s done since the start of training camp in July.
My legal team is taking care of everything. 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 played in just one of the Chiefs’ four games this season, missing the other three because of a hamstring injury.
