Browns DT Kiante Tripp arrested on burglary charge

By Associated Press Published: July 3, 2012

Browns defensive tackle Kiante Tripp is in a Georgia jail on a burglary charge in College Park.

College Park police spokesman Sgt. Jeff Hightower says Tripp was arrested with two others Sunday afternoon at an apartment in that Atlanta suburb.

The arrest resulted from neighbors calling police to say that armed men were in the apartment. Officers arrived, heard the men through the locked front door, and then caught them fleeing through the back. Hightower says nothing was stolen.

Tripp was being held at the Fulton County Jail on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old attended the University of Georgia. He was on the Browns’ active roster for three games last season. General Manager Tom Heckert says he’s aware of what happened and had no further comment at this time.
