Former Kansas City Chiefs Wide Receiver Bobby Sippio Charged With Attempted Murder

For the last decade, Bobby Sippio has tried to parlay his wide receiver skills into a career of some kind. Instead, he’s bounced from team to team, and even football league to football league, trying to make a go of it. His most recent venture with the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League might be his last with the news that he’s been arrested on charges of attempted murder.

Now 31, the former Kansas City Chiefs receiver allegedly kidnapped and assaulted his roommate, Sergio Moore, and threatened to kill him. According to Moore, Sippio picked him up with an accomplice under the guise of helping him move. Instead, he was locked in the car and beaten. From the Orlando Sentinel:

Instead, Sippio pulled a gun out of the center console, Moore told investigators. Moore tried to open the door and the windows, but they apparently had been locked on the driver’s side. Sippio drove to a rural section of Osceola County off Poinciana Boulevard — Sippio is a former Osceola High School Kowboys quarterback — and forced Moore out of the car in a pasture off Oren Brown Road, a sheriff’s report states.

There, Coats and the 6-foot-4-inch, 215-pound Sippio punched and kicked Moore and Coats pointed the gun at him, he told deputies. Sippio told Moore that his sister could not save him, a sheriff’s report states. After the beating, Coats and Sippio continued to terrorize Moore with the gun as they drove him home, according to deputies. Sippio and Moore are roommates, investigators said.

Sippio has also been in training camp with the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions among many other professional teams.
