Damon Arnette Faces Arrest: Legal Counsel Challenges Meth and Gun Allegations


Former Las Vegas Raiders cornerback Damon Arnette found himself in legal trouble once again as he was arrested last month in Texas. 

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Arnette was charged with possession of methamphetamine and the unlawful carrying of a firearm.

The incident took place in the Dallas area on Jan. 6 at 3:30 am While specifics leading to the arrest remain unclear, it’s reported that Arnette was allegedly found with less than a gram of methamphetamine. Despite being a felony in the state, this typically doesn’t result in jail time.

Arnette’s attorneys released a statement asserting that his arrest stemmed from his inability to provide law enforcement with a prescription for a lawful medication. This raises questions about the circumstances surrounding the arrest and Arnette’s state of affairs.

A former standout player at Ohio State, Arnette’s professional career with the Raiders was marred by legal issues and injuries. Drafted in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, he struggled to find consistency on the field. In his rookie season, he managed 25 total tackles in nine games.
