NFL Player Arrested In L.A. Hours After Team’s Win

Rams starting cornerback Derion Kendrick was arrested early Monday morning and faces a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon.

Los Angeles County jail inmate records indicate Kendrick was arrested after a traffic stop in Hollywood, several hours after the Rams’ 26-9 victory over Arizona at SoFi Stadium.

TMZ reported officers found a gun and marijuana in Kendrick’s car.

Kendrick was booked at 2:14 a.m. local time, and there was no record of his release by mid-afternoon.

Rams coach Sean McVay acknowledged the arrest during his Monday media availability but declined to answer most questions about Kendrick. He declined to say whether Kendrick was still in jail.

“We’re continuing to gather more information,” McVay said. “And so, until then, I’m going to just kind of leave it at that until I have all the appropriate information. And I don’t think it would be appropriate for me to speak on things that I don’t have the totality of it other than knowing that he was arrested early this morning.”

McVay declined to say whether he expected Kendrick to be available to play or practice this week, saying, “Until I have all of the information, it’s hard for me to answer anything further with regards to his status, any of those types of things.”

McVay said the Rams were “in communication with the league early this morning” regarding Kendrick’s arrest.

Kendrick, a 2022 sixth-round pick, played all but eight defensive snaps for the Rams on Sunday.

  1. Well, at least he was not beating his pregnant girlfriend or accused of sponsoring a dog fighting ring.
    So possession of pot……a misdemeanor? Concealed weapon , that is a big one in CAL?
    In Texas would be the other way around…..getting mellow (BIG crime) carrying a weapon to end other humans… get a medal
    No wonder people are confused and the “Land of the Free” is the nation with highest percentage of incarcerated citizens in the WORLD

    1. Everyone needs to carry a weapon as protection from the evil thieving murderous Democrat junkies… Texas has it right, and, as usual, CommieFornia has it wrong…

  2. …Thug Player….Thug Coach….In a Thug League that I hope goes bankrupt. I hope for a new “low-ratings-record” on the Superbowl yet again. Thugs, Thugs, Thugs.

  3. What is wrong with these young men getting big money to give them the right to be stupid I hope his mother and father let him know how ashamed they are of him
