Former Michigan defensive end Frank Clark arrested on weapons charge

“Officers noticed a bag with an Uzi sticking out.”

Michigan v Notre Dame

Former Michigan Wolverines defensive end and NFL pass rusher Frank Clark was arrested for possession of a concealed weapon on Sunday, according to Los Angeles police. Clark was pulled over after a vehicle violation when an officer noticed a submachine gun sticking out of a bag in his car.

“Officers noticed a bag with an Uzi sticking out” in plain sight in the car, LAPD public information officer Tony Im said.

Clark was then arrested and booked into the LA County jail and released Monday on a $35,000 bond.

“We are aware of the matter which will be reviewed under the NFL’s personal conduct policy,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.

Following his college career, Clark was a second round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in the 2015 NFL Draft. He has spent the last four seasons as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, where he won a Super Bowl in 2019. Clark’s NFL career has been productive to this point, racking up 49 sacks in 91 career games.

Clark was arrested in 2014 during his time at U-M on suspicion of domestic violence in an Ohio hotel. This led to his dismissal from the program late in the season and he would eventually plead guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct.
