KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) - The Kansas City Chiefs’ Linebacker Willie Gay Jr. has been suspended due to a January domestic violence arrest.

The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Twitter Monday afternoon, Sept. 19, that the NFL suspended Chiefs Linebacker Willie Gay Jr. for four games without pay for violating the league’s Personal Conduct Policy.

Rapoport indicated that Gay will be eligible to return to the Chiefs’ roster on Monday, Oct. 17, after the team’s Week 6 game against Buffalo.

Gay was arrested on Jan. 19, in Overland Park for misdemeanor criminal damage after he damaged a vacuum cleaner, wall and door frame during a fight with a woman. The case was classified as domestic violence.
