A former NFL player who won three Super Bowl titles has been arrested after allegations that he damaged several cars in a parking structure in Riviera Beach, Florida.

CBS12 disclosed that Timothy B. McKyer, 60, has been implicated by the Riviera Beach Police Department (RBPD) for his involvement in the incidents.

Authorities reported that McKyer, who resides in the vicinity, is accused of hitting six parked vehicles before leaving the scene of his crimes, as the Daily Caller reported.

McKyer's Illustrious NFL Career

McKyer's career in the NFL spanned over a dozen years, from 1986 to 1997.

He is celebrated for his contributions to the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos, securing two Super Bowl victories with the former and one with the latter.

His entry into the NFL was marked by his selection in the third round of the 1986 draft by the 49ers.

This move was later highlighted by his leading role in interceptions among the team's defensive backs during their 1989 Super Bowl win, as noted by the Museum of the Gulf Coast.

Throughout his career, McKyer was recognized for his mobility across teams.

Ultimately, his career progressino earned him the moniker "Frequent Flier."

Following his Super Bowl triumph with Denver in 1997, McKyer was released from the team.

"It was disappointing as hell not coming back to Denver. I love playing there," McKyer conveyed to the Deseret News regarding his final team.

He added, "The way they practice and treat veteran players is the perfect atmosphere for a person like me."

"Maybe I was not invited to training camp because I'd show up their starters," McKyer quipped.

Legal Proceedings and Charges

Following his recent run-in with the law, McKyer was transported to the Palm Beach County Jail.

The charges brought against him include five counts related to leaving the scene of an accident with property damage exceeding $50, a traffic misdemeanor for fleeing.

He also faces an additional charge for failing to report the incident, as detailed by CBS12.

The Riviera Beach Police have stated that the investigation into these allegations remains active.
