KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - Starting linebacker Willie Gay will miss the next four games for the Kansas City Chiefs.

The NFL announced Monday it has suspended Gay in reference to his January arrest where he was charged with misdemeanor criminal damage in Overland Park.

Charging documents stated Gay damaged a vacuum cleaner, wall and door frame during a confrontation with a woman. It was classified as a domestic violence offense.

Gay was charged with misdemeanor criminal damage under $1,000. The Chiefs linebacker agreed to a pre-trial diversion hearing in June.

He will be eligible to return to the Chiefs’ active roster following the team’s Week 6 game matchup against Buffalo.
