NFL Great Arrested

Legendary former NFL linebacker Terrell Suggs faced arrest in Arizona on Tuesday night on various charges, according to police reports.

The 41-year-old was apprehended in Scottsdale on allegations of threatening and intimidating behavior along with disorderly conduct involving a weapon, as per KSAZ-TV.

He was subsequently booked into Maricopa County Jail.

TMZ Sports mentioned that Suggs was released shortly afterward, and there was no further comment from his representative.

Suggs' arrest stemmed from an incident on March 10, as reported by KSAZ. According to court documents and video evidence from the victim's dashcam, Suggs collided with the victim's vehicle at a local Starbucks. Following the collision, he engaged in an argument with the victim before driving away.

The court documents detailed that "[Suggs] then began to leave the drive-thru but stopped shortly and then reached his left arm out of the open driver’s window of his vehicle and displayed a black handgun in his left hand. The handgun was never pointed at the victim and was just merely shown, which the victim believed [Suggs] was threatening him with."

Suggs, a former Arizona State University college football standout, was the tenth overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft and won the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award that year.

During his career, he earned seven Pro Bowl selections, won two Super Bowl championships, and was named the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year in 2011. He played 16 seasons primarily with the Baltimore Ravens, contributing significantly to their Super Bowl victory in February 2013.

In 2019, Suggs was released by the Arizona Cardinals but swiftly joined the Kansas City Chiefs, where he played a vital role in their Super Bowl-winning season before retiring.

Throughout his career, Suggs had encounters with law enforcement, including an assault accusation in 2003, which resulted in acquittal, and other incidents that were either dropped or did not lead to convictions, including allegations of domestic violence.

Suggs concluded his NFL tenure with impressive stats, including 887 tackles, 139 sacks, seven interceptions, and two touchdowns.
