Prosecutors in Johnson County allege that Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Willie Gay Jr. committed criminal damage to property which constitutes a domestic violence offense, according to court documents.
Gay, 23, was arrested at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday and booked into Johnson County jail shortly after midnight Thursday morning. He's scheduled to appear before a judge at 2:30 p.m.
Prosecutors charged Gay Thursday morning the misdemeanor charge of criminal damage to property, which "constitutes a domestic violence offense," according to the court documents.
Gay allegedly damaged a vacuum, cell phone, wall, door frame and a humidifier, according to an Overland Park police report, which said the total amount of damage was $225.
The victim, identified as an ex-partner, was not injured, according to the police report. No drugs or alcohol were involved in the incident.
A spokesperson with the Chiefs told The Star on Thursday morning that the team is aware of Gay's overnight arrest but had no further comment.
