Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly Arrested After Allegedly Fighting Bouncers, Telling Them He Was Going To "Get His AK-47"

It was just this past Wednesday that former Clemson quarterback Chad Kelly, who saw an unceremonious end to his career with the Tigers, signed on to continue his career with the Ole Miss Rebels. Whether he'll ever get to suit up for a game in Oxford is now in serious doubt.

According to Joseph Popiolkowski of, Kelly was arrested early Sunday morning after he reportedly fought with bouncers who were trying to evict him from an establishment. After allegedly punching a bouncer in the face, a police report stated that Kelly told them he was going to return to his car to get his AK-47 and "spray" the place. He also reportedly fought the police when they stopped him.

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.

As you'd imagine, Kelly is facing a number of charges, including assault, harassment, menacing, resisting arrest, criminal mischief and obstructing governmental administration. We'll see how Ole Miss reacts to the news.
