Kansas City Chiefs CB Mike Richardson was arrested Saturday during the Gasparilla Parade in Tampa Bay.
Richardson was among 413 people taken into custody, the vast majority were charged with alcohol-related offenses, Tampa police say.
Tampa police spokeswoman Laura McElroy said of the 413 arrests, 406 were misdemeanors and seven were felonies. The felony charges included battery on a law enforcement officer, battery on a police horse, being in possession of fake identification, and felony possession of marijuana.
Richardson was arrested at 4:15 p.m., in the vicinity of the Howard and Swann Avenue intersection, on a charge of being in possession of an open container.
He was released from the Orient Road Jail at 8:10 p.m. after posting a $250 cash bail, according to jail records.
Somehow I don’t think that being arrested for such a minor offense will impact Richardson’s standing with the Chiefs.
