Former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Carr was arrested Thursday, Sept. 15, in Allen, Texas for drunk driving, according to Fox 4 News.

Carr was released on $1,500 bail Thursday, according to online court filings.

Carr, 36, was a fifth-round draft pick for the Chiefs in 2008. According to Pro Football Reference, he played four seasons at Kansas City, starting in every single game during that period. Carr played a total of 13 seasons in the NFL, six seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens after his time with the Chiefs.

On Thursday Night Football and the first-ever Prime Video broadcast, the Chiefs beat division rivals Los Angeles Chargers 27-24 in Week 2.

While the game was on point — which included an onside kick from the Chargers with less than a minute left in the game — Kansas City came out with a win to go 2-0 up for the season.

Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 24 of 35 pass attempts for 235 yards and 2 touchdowns. The biggest playmaker outside of Mahomes on offense for Kansas City was running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who demonstrated his running and passing skills.

In Week 2, Edwards-Helaire had 8 carries for 74 yards — including a 52-yard rush in the fourth quarter — and 4 catches for 44 yards.

The leading receiver for the Chiefs was tight end Travis Kelce, who had 5 catches for 51 yards.

As for Kansas City’s defense, they gave Los Angeles a total of 401 yards of offense. The highlight game of the evening for the defense was a 99-yard seventh-round pick-six by rookie Jaylen Watson early in the fourth quarter to put the Chiefs ahead.

The standout boxing score among Kansas City defenders was defensive tackle Chris Jones, who amassed 2 sacks, 2 tackles for loss, 2 quarterback hits and 1 pass defended, according to ESPN.

The Chiefs are now first in the division ahead of the Chargers (1-1), the Las Vegas Raiders (0-1) and the Denver Broncos (0-1). Kansas City is now on an extended break before the team takes on the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, September 25.

Twitter users reacted to the Chiefs’ Week 2 win over the Chargers.

“It’s insane how much is being said about the Chargers and not how our defense smacked them in the mouth after a rocky start in the second half,” wrote one Twitter user.

“Ryan Clark is the only one supporting the Chiefs on First Take. The rest of them have convinced themselves that the Chargers are the best team in the AFC after they lost… Love it,” wrote another user.

“Friendly reminder as most Chargers fans (and some other NFL fans) want to blame the umpires. The Chiefs were given double the penalties. 6 for 54 yards. Chargers had 3 for 25 yards. Please stop blaming the referees, it’s not looking good. & missed calls happened for both teams,” wrote another user.

“The thing about most Chiefs fans is that we respect Herbert. We don’t like him. And we give him his credit. Charger fans? You remain disrespectful to Patrick,” wrote another user.
