A former Las Vegas Raiders star was called out by a model this week for allegedly robbing her of her expensive belongings.
The model in question, Danii Banks, appeared on a podcast recently and shared the details of what former Raiders cornerback Damon Arnette did to her.
As Banks tells it, while she went to the bathroom, Arnette stole her Cartier watch and then used her phone to send himself money from her account.
Banks claimed to have video evidence of the crime, too.

If Arnette’s name sounds familiar, it’s because he was in the headlines just this week for getting community service over a situation where he was accused of brandishing a gun at the MGM Las Vegas Hotel and Casino early last year.
Arnette wound up taking a plea deal over the incident.
At the moment, Arnette’s NFL future is in doubt. There are some rumors about him possibly being in talks with the Dallas Cowboys, but it’s unclear how legit those are. He is a former Ohio State standout who was drafted by the Raiders in the first round back in 2020.
His pro career obviously hasn’t gone as planned up to this point.

This has been a busy week for the Raiders. Between the cheerleader whose provocative photos set the internet ablaze and now this mess involving Arnette, the team has been a permanent fixture in the headlines over the past few days.
With the NFL preseason rapidly approaching, that figures to continue to be the case going forward.
Will the Raiders be able to generate some news for something positive for a change at some point in the foreseeable future? Time will tell.
