Raiders player held in street racing incident


Police on Saturday arrested Las Vegas Raiders defensive back Kemah Siverand in Houston following his role in a street racing incident.

The 24-year-old graduate of Cypress Ridge High School, who played previously for the Seattle Seahawks and collegiate­ly at Oklahoma State, was charged with evading arrest after authoritie­s flagged him for a traffic stop.

Siverand initially stopped along North Loop East, near Lockwood Drive, but continued to drive another mile, according to court records. He listed the NFL as his employer in bond paperwork and was released from the Harris County Jail on a $2,500 bond hours after his arrest.

Two others, Roland Macias and Illsen Urruita, both 19, were charged with racing on a highway from the same incident, police said.

Siverand signed with the Las Vegas team’s practice squad last October. He had been waived by Seattle in August after trying to sneak a woman into the team hotel during training camp.
