Chiefs DE Isaiah Buggs is facing two arrest warrants for potential animal cruelty charges, though his agent adamantly denies the claims.

In a statement released by Trey Robinson, Buggs' agent, it's claimed that Buggs never mistreated the animals and instead, Robinson claims the city of Tuscaloosa and the police department are conspiring against Buggs to force the close of his business, a local hookah lounge.

Chiefs DE Isaiah Buggs Denies Animal Abuse in Statement

"Isaiah vehemently denies the truthfulness of the allegations and charges asserted against him today," says Robinson. "Under no circumstance does Mr. Buggs condone the mistreatment of any animal. The dogs at issue did not belong to him and he was unaware they remained at the property in question."

Robinson argues that these allegations are "part of a concerted effort by the City of Tuscaloosa and its Police Department to besmirch Mr. Buggs' name and reputation as part of an on-going subversive campaign to force the close of his local business Kings Hookah Lounge."

He claims the city wants Buggs to voluntarily surrender his business license, saying that Buggs had been arrested twice on misdemeanor charges in the last month that were not filed into public record.

Buggs has been with the Chiefs since 2023 though has not played a snap with Kansas City. He was originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2019 and has spent time with the Detroit Lions as well.

The Chiefs have not made an official statement regarding the allegations.
