The Las Vegas Raiders are cutting ties with another former first-
round pick following off-field incidents.

The Raiders are releasing corner Damon Arnette, NFL Network's Tom
Pelissero reported. General manager Mike Mayock confirmed the move
Monday afternoon.

The move comes after a video of Arnette went viral over the weekend.
In the video, Arnette is seen brandishing a gun and threatening to
kill someone.

"Very painful decision," Mayock said, per ESPN.com. "We spent
significant time, effort and resources trying to help him in all
aspects of his life. ... We cannot stand for the video of Damon with
a gun, threatening to take a life."

The No. 19 overall pick in 2020 out of Ohio State has been on
injured reserve since Week 4 and played sparingly before the injury.
His career in Vegas will end after just 13 games played and three
total passes defensed over two seasons.

Mayock acknowledged there was "significant concern" regarding
Arnette before the draft. "Obviously, we missed. That is 100 percent
on me," he said, per ESPN.com.

Additionally, Arnette reportedly faces multiple lawsuits, including
one filed in Oct. 2021 alleging Arnette of a hit-and-run on Oct. 14,
2020, that caused bodily harm to a woman. The corner was allegedly
running late for a meeting at the team facility and continued to his
destination, fleeing the scene after the accident.

A second lawsuit alleges Arnette had an altercation with a valet
worker at the Aria Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The suit claims
Arnette spat on the worker and poked him in the chest.

The release of Arnette comes after the Raiders cut former first-
round receiver Henry Ruggs III following felony charges of driving
under the influence of alcohol resulting in death and reckless
driving.
