New Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly Arrested For Telling Club Bouncers “I’m Going To My Car To Get My AK-47 and Spray This Place”
Buffalo - Chad Kelly, a former local high school football star who signed a major college football scholarship offer last week, was arrested early Sunday after police say he fought with bouncers trying to evict him and a companion from a downtown bar and restaurant and later scuffled with police.
Kelly, 20, of Niagara Falls, refused to leave Encore at 492 Pearl St. about 3:15 a.m. and punched a bouncer in the face, Buffalo police said. Kelly’s companion, Brandon Hickey, 21, of Clarence, had been thrown out of the bar earlier and tried to re-enter, police said.
Kelly continued to fight with two bouncers and stated “I’m going to go to my car and get my AK-47 and spray this place,” according to a report.
Buffalo police officers responding to that alleged threat stopped a 2005 Ford F-150 pickup truck in which Kelly was a passenger at 458 Pearl. Kelly was forcibly removed from the vehicle, officers said. Police said Kelly kicked and tried to swing at officers as they removed him from the vehicle. They said he resisted getting into a patrol vehicle and struggled with staff at central booking.
Kelly faces multiple charges including third-degree assault, second-degree harassment, second-degree menacing, resisting arrest, fourth-degree criminal mischief and second-degree obstructing governmental administration. Kelly was arraigned later in Buffalo City Court and released without bail to await further court proceedings.
Chad Kelly, nephew of Buffalo Bills great Jim Kelly, signed a scholarship offer with the University of Mississippi on Wednesday. He had previously signed with Clemson after a record-setting career at St. Joe’s.
Chad Kelly, love this guy. Total loose cannon. Last time we heard from him he was getting kicked off the Clemson team for rear ending Miss South Carolina’s car. (And also having like 150 team rules violations). Now we got him threatening a bar with an AK 47 and fighting cops. Little bit of mass murder at a Buffalo bar on a casual weekend night. Ole Miss has a real gem on their hands, just hope they know how to harness it.
Oh you don’t believe he’s a next level football player? Just ask him.
