This Sunday, the second season of HBO's award winning drama True Detective winds down with its season finale. If you've watched then you know, this season has been a sea of bloody violence that would make The Sopranos blush.

The good news for fans of True Detective is that it appears HBO's Hard Knocks, which starts next Tuesday, is going to get a violent storyline of its own. In a story that feels like it was scooped up off the True Detective cutting room floor and handed to NFL Films, the father of Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney was arrested in Clowney's hometown of Rock Hill, SC and charged for attempted murder in an incident outside a strip club early Tuesday morning.

David Morgan, who goes by the somewhat awesome nickname "Chilli Bean," was also charged with possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to Rock Hill Police Captain Mark Bollinger. According to the police report, Morgan was removed from the Crazy Horse strip club for sitting on the stage. Later that night he was seen hanging around behind the club where he fired several rounds at club employee Braxton Homesley. Homesley returned fire, hitting Morgan on the shoulder.

Morgan was picked up at the Piedmont Medical Center by authorities and put in jail after getting treatment for his wounds. Morgan is no stranger to trouble with the law, having gone away for 15 years in 1995 for burglary and other crimes.

According to a report on ESPN.com, Clowney was "highly upset" when he heard the news, and it's not like he doesn't already have enough on his plate. The second year linebacker is tentatively slated to return from microfracture knee surgery on August 17. He's been sidelined since the middle of the 2014 season.
