Demonstrating the skilled art of career ruining, Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Kiante Tripp was arrested and jailed Tuesday in College Park, Ga., FOX 5 Atlanta reported.
Police say the second-year lineman and two others were threatening people inside an apartment and then ransacked the residence. It’s believed the three were looking for a man who had stolen money from them.
Tripp was charged with felony burglary and taken to the Fulton County Jail.
Shortly after his arrest, Browns GM Tom Heckert released a statement regarding the incident.
“We are aware of the incident involving Kiante Tripp,” Heckert said. “We are currently gathering information related to it, and will not have any further comment at this time.”
Tripp, who went undrafted out of Georgia and signed to Cleveland’s roster last November, will spend the Fourth in court, and likely the latter part of the summer on waivers.
