HOUSTON – A Los Vegas Raiders soccer player was arrested over the weekend following a street racing incident in Houston.

The incident was reported around 12:05 a.m. Saturday on North Loop East near Lockwood Drive.

According to Houston police, officers saw five vehicles rushing into the North Loop and a chase ensued.

“We chased three of them, we chased them and three of them went to jail,” Acevedo said at a news conference Monday.

These three people were later identified by the police as Yakemah Siverand, 24, Rolando Macias, 19, and Illsen Urruita, 19.

Macias and Urruita were each charged with running on a highway.

Siverand, who is from Cypress, was charged with a felony for evading arrest after police said he initially stopped for officers and then continued driving a mile before stopping.

‘Kemah’ Siverand is a defensive back for the Raiders and joined the team last year. Before that, he played for Oklahoma State University.
