Damon Arnette, a former Las Vegas Raiders cornerback, was reportedly arrested early Tuesday morning on three charges in South Florida.
Arnette was initially stopped Monday night in Miami Beach and was found to be driving with a suspended license and was issued a citation, but was unable to avoid an arrest in his second stop in four hours, TMZ Sports reported, citing police records.
After the first stop, officers reportedly told Arnette he could not drive his vehicle until his license was reinstated, but they “allowed another licensed driver to drive the vehicle from the traffic stop.”

But police said officers allegedly found him driving the same car around 10 p.m. 12:48 a.m. ET and booked him with knowingly driving with a suspended license. Police said a further search of Arnette found a baggie “containing (a) white powdery substance consistent with that of cocaine,” according to TMZ.
Arnette was charged shortly after 3 a.m. Tuesday with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license.
Arnette has been in and out of trouble ever since he was drafted by the Raiders in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He was released by Las Vegas last November after videos of him brandishing weapons and making death threats surfaced on social media.

About two months later, he was arrested in Las Vegas and charged with five felonies, all of which were dropped Tuesday. He was a member of the Kansas City Chiefs at the time, who released him after news of this arrest.
He was also accused of injuring a woman in a car accident back in 2020 – those allegations came three days before his release from the Raiders.
