Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland allegedly pushed a cop and admitted marijuana use, before a police officer pulled a gun on him. That, according to a police report detailing an altercation the Super Bowl champ reportedly had with cops in South Carolina.

According to the State:

Breeland was charged with resisting arrest; transporting alcohol in a motor vehicle with the seal broken; open container of beer or wine in a motor vehicle; possession of 28 grams or less of marijuana or 10 grams of hash; and driving without a license on Tuesday.

An incident report from the York County Sheriff’s Office states that Breeland ‘pushed’ a deputy as he was resisting arrest. Breeland resisted arrest for an extended period of time and told police he was a “marijuana enthusiast,” according to the police report.

Breeland and two other males were seen smoking marijuana at a gas station in northern York County just south of the Mecklenburg County, North Carolina state line on S.C. 160, near the city of Tega Cay on Tuesday when they were approached by a deputy, the report states.

The deputy saw one of the suspects throw a small blunt into the back of Breeland’s car, according to the report. The deputy ‘smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from each suspect,’ the report states.

The situation deteriorated from there, according to police. The report states that Breeland attempted to flee the scene, he then pulled away from ane eventually pushed the deputy, causing him to pull his taser.

“Breeland pushed the deputy away, got his driver’s door open and hopped into his vehicle, according to the report, the State reports. “Breeland allegedly was not following orders and the deputy could not see his hands. The deputy then drew his firearm and Breeland put his hands into the air, the report states.”

Breeland then, according to the report, resisted the officer’s efforts to place his hands in handcuffs for roughly three minutes, before eventually submitting to being cuffed.
