It has not been a good month for a former 2017 College Football Playoff National Champion for Alabama.

Isaiah Buggs, who attended East Mississippi Community College before spending two years at Alabama, has been charged and arrested twice this month in Tuscaloosa, Ala. His first offense was two misdemeanor warrants for second-degree  cruelty to dogs, but law enforcement got him again Sunday via Tuscaloosa County Jail records on charges of second-degree domestic violence and burglary.

Buggs, a native of Ruston, La., signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on Jan. 4.
