More worrying news for NFL player Damon Arnette … the previous draft of the 1st round was arrested Friday night in Las Vegas after he allegedly threatened a valet with a gun, TMZ Sport have learned.
The 25-year-old cornerback was busted for assault with a deadly weapon, with a concealed weapon and possession of a controlled substance, after a fight allegedly took place at Park MGM on Las Vegas Boulevard.

A witness tells us that Damon tried to pick up a car without a serviced ticket … led to a dispute. We are told that Arnette drew a gun and the police were eventually called.
This is just the latest issue with the former Ohio State star. Arnette was cut by the Raiders in November, after a video surfaced showing Damon threatening someone with a gun.
It’s Arnette too being sued of a woman who claims he hit her car and injured her and left the crash site after an accident in October 2020.
After an outstanding season at Ohio State, where Arnette received 2nd Team All-Big Ten honors, he was the 19th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
In 2 seasons with the Raiders, Arnette played in 13 games and collected 29 tackles. After Vegas cut him, he signed as a training team player with the Miami Dolphins.
