Breeland takes to Twitter, claims he is innocent


Former Clemson standout was charged on five counts, arrested on Tuesday

Former Clemson standout and current Kansas City Chief, Bashaud Breeland, claims he is innocent and appears he is going to fight the five counts he was charged and arrested on Tuesday afternoon in York County, S.C.

Breeland was charged on five counts: resisting arrest, the transport of alcohol in motor vehicle with a broken seal, open container of beer or wine in motor vehicle, possession of 28 grams or less of marijuana or 10 grams of hash, and driving without a license, which was first reported by The Charleston Post and Courier.

However, Breeland is disputing those charges and took to Twitter early Wednesday morning to declare his innocence. The Allendale, S.C., native wrote he was at a gas station pumping gas when two men approached him. When police pulled up, the men threw something in his car, which the police saw.

Breeland said he was the only one detained and charged. He felt he should not have been the one charged in the situation.

In a subsequent tweet, Breeland said he is not fighting the charges to clear his name because he does not care what people think. “I know the truth. Innocent until proven guilty.”

Breeland played cornerback for Clemson from 2011-’13 and this past year he helped lead Kansas City to its first Super Bowl title in 50 years. He recently signed a one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Chiefs to stay in Kansas City.

In the Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers, Breeland totaled seven tackles and had an interception in the second quarter that set up a Kansas City score.

At Clemson, Breeland was an All-ACC performer in 2013. He finished his Clemson career with 136 tackles and six interceptions.
