Former NFL linebacker arrested for attacking his neighbor in a dispute over a video game
Chike Okeafor was a ten-year veteran after an amazing career at Purdue. The ten-year vet is now making the funny papers after he attacked his neighbor in a dispute over a video game.
According to the Lafayette Police Department, officers took 46-year-old Chikezie “Chike” Okeafor into custody after being called to a home in Indiana.
According to Fox 59 in Indiana, Okeafor entered his neighbor’s house without permission to confront the neighbor’s son.
The neighbor disagreed with Okeafor and asked him to leave the house, police said. Okeafor then “physically attacked” his 39-year-old neighbor; family members had to break up the altercation.
Police arrested Okeafor on charges of battery with injury and residential entry. He was booked into the Tippecanoe County Jail.
Okeafor was a third round of the 1999 NFL Draft of the San Francisco 49ers. He played for ten years between the Cardinals, 49ers, and Seahawks.
