According to Gay’s manager, he and the mother of his son got into an argument during which he broke her vacuum. No one was touched, nothing happened beyond a broken appliance. She called cops about it and they took him in on misdemeanor destruction of property of less than $1000. Likely he just pays a fine and replaces vacuum. Nothing more, all should be resolved today with no further issues.

The 23-year-old linebacker was a second-round draft pick of the Chiefs in 2020. It is unclear what his status will be for this week’s game against the Bills.
