Cox arrest a too familiar tale
The NFL (National Football League) has been said to stand for “Not For Long.” For one of West Point’s native sons, an incident that resulted in an arrest on Monday afternoon might prove the NFL was not to be sustained.
Kansas City Chief defensive back Justin Cox, a former East Mississippi Lion and Mississippi State Bulldog, was arrested in West Point for an alleged Monday incident in Starkville. Cox was charged with burglary of a residence, domestic violence, aggravated assault and trespassing.
The West Point native was held in Oktibbeha County jail. An arraignment was scheduled for Tuesday. Bond will be set at the hearing.

UPDATE: It may come as little surprise that a decision did not take long from the Chiefs' organization. Kansas City waived Cox from the team on Tuesday afternoon. the West Point native was one week away from reporting for rookie camp.
