Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs has gotten into trouble with the law for the second time in less than a month.

According to records from the Tuscaloosa County Jail in Alabama, Buggs was arrested on Sunday on charges of domestic violence and burglary.

Details are unclear, but a Tuscaloosa police spokesman said Buggs had been in jail for 12 hours since noon Sunday on domestic violence charges. His bail was set at $5,000.

The arrest was Buggs' second stay in the Tuscaloosa County Jail in the past three weeks. The former Alabama star turned himself in on May 30 after two warrants were issued for his arrest on animal cruelty charges. Police reportedly found two dogs – a pit bull and a Rottweiler mix – on the back porch of a home without access to food or water. The home was rented by Buggs. More information on these charges can be found here.

Buggs was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-3, 295-pound tackle played three seasons with the Steelers before spending his final two seasons with the Detroit Lions.

Buggs signed with the Chiefs as a practice player in January before signing a futures contract with the team the following month.
