Fox News: Chiefs defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs turns himself in to face animal cruelty charges after police seize ‘severely malnourished’ dogs

In response to the discovery of dogs on his farm that were described as “severely malnourished,” Chiefs defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs has turned himself in to the authorities in Alabama.

In the early hours of Thursday morning, the champion of Super Bowl LVIII was arrested and brought into the Tuscaloosa County Jail on two misdemeanor charges of animal cruelty from the second degree.

According to the coverage provided by the local Fox News station, he was freed that morning after paying a bond of $600.

An accusation was made against Buggs that he had abandoned two dogs on the back porch of his home, which was situated close to the University of Alabama, which was his alma mater.

It is stated in the legal documents that officers from the Tuscaloosa Police Department and Animal Control discovered a pit bull that was surrounded by feces and had no access to either food or water.

First responders also found a black rottweiler mix imprisoned in a metal cage – in direct sunlight – without access to food or water.

According to the contents of the legal suit, the city took possession of the dogs because they were “malnourished, emaciated, and neglected” to a significant degree.

At the time of the initial contact, the documents indicated that the property looked to be abandoned; nevertheless, neighbors stated that the dogs had been left out on the porch for a period of at least ten days.

It was revealed by the investigators that Buggs was the tenant of the house, and that his lease had been terminated in April due to the fact that he owed more than $3,000 in additional rent. As far as witnesses are concerned, Buggs reportedly left the house on or around March 19th.

After the pit bull’s heartworm treatment was unsuccessful and it got increasingly violent, the Tuscaloosa County Animal Shelter determined that it was best to put it down.

Meanwhile, the Rottweiler mix tested positive for parvovirus and weighed a dangerously low 52 pounds when it arrived at the shelter.

It’s yet another twist in a long offseason for the defending Super Bowl champions after various players of the club have been jailed or embroiled in controversy.

Rookie wide receiver Rashee Rice allegedly hit a photographer outside a Dallas nightclub, though he won’t face charges. He is also facing both criminal and civil trouble for a road racing event in Dallas that led to a catastrophe involving half-a-dozen automobiles back in March.
