Man arrested in attempt to extort Chiefs Tyrann Mathieu

"In another text to Mathieu, Sears allegedly told him, "$5 million by Friday, I'm done talking, emailing TMZ now".

Mathieu's representatives told WDSU that the accused extortionist has mental health struggles. He also provided his bank account information so Mathieu, or his associates, could deposit the money, according to court documents.

In late April, according to court records, Mathieu was in Kansas City when he got a phone call from Sears, who was in New Orleans. Mathieu's relatives reportedly feared for their safety.

A man from New Orleans was arrested after alleged attempts to extort Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu for $1.5 million dollars, a report from WDSU News revealed on Tuesday. Things intensified as Sears made a number of threats. His next court date is set for June 21. He is being held on home incarceration and with a monitoring device, according to the court order. While the reason was never released by the school, ESPN reported that he had failed multiple drug tests.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe Selected to NBA All-Defensive First Team
Antetokounmpo averaged 1.5 blocks per game - the second-highest mark of his career - while Bledsoe added 1.5 steals per contest. James Harden received two first team votes, a testament to the improvements that he's made on that side of the ball.

Mathieu kicked off his National Football League career in 2013, when he was selected in the third round by the Arizona Cardinals.

After stints with the Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans, it appears Mathieu is ready to take a big step personally in marrying Sydni Paige Russell, the step daughter of former New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles.

He then signed a three-year deal worth $42 million with the Chiefs in March.
