NFL superstar Frank Clark now stands up to 3 YEARS behind lock and key … after prosecutors hit him with a crime accused of possessing an assault weapon on Friday TMZ Sports have learned.
We broke the story … Clark was arrested on June 20 – after police say they saw a uzi in his Lambo SUV during a routine traffic stop.
Officers say the firearm was inside an open bag during the trip … so they arrested the 28-year-old Chiefs pass rusher.
According to a source close to Clark, the football player claimed the gun was NOT his … and instead belonged to a member of his security team.
Prosecutors apparently did not buy it, however … accused him of a crime on Friday.
If Clark is convicted, he faces three years behind bars.
The two-time Pro Bowler is due in court next week for a hearing on the case.
Clark is one of the Chiefs’ best players … he has logged 14 sacks since joining KC in 2019 and is in the middle of a $ 104 MILLION 5-year contract.
