Former Mississippi State and Kansas City Chiefs safety Justin Cox was arrested again on domestic violence charges.

It is Cox’s second arrest for domestic violence since November. He was arrested and charged with aggravated domestic violence, burglary of a residence and trespassing on Monday. The alleged incident took place at Aspen Heights apartment complex in Starkville around 1 p.m. and was taken into custody in his hometown of West Point. He was transferred and booked into the Oktibbeha County Jail at 4 p.m.

Cox’s initial arrest in November led to his indefinite suspension from MSU for the final three games. Those charges were dropped in January.

Cox ran the fastest forty time (4.36) among all defensive backs at the NFL Scouting Combine in February but went undrafted. He later signed a free agent contract with the Chiefs.

Cox is expected in court Tuesday morning for an arraignment hearing.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
