ENGLEWOOD, CO (WLBT) - The Denver Broncos waived backup quarterback Chad Kelly Wednesday following his arrest early for criminal trespassing.
Broncos President of Football Operations and General Manager John Elway announced the move, saying it was an organizational decision made after reviewing all information.
Elway said in a press release, “Even though Chad’s no longer part of our team, we’ve offered to help him however we can and are supportive of him in every possible way.”
Kelly was arrested after a costume-themed party thrown by Denver Bronco, Von Miller. The NFL Network reports Kelly was involved in physical altercations with both a guest at a party and hired security before being escorted out of the party.
Kelly then reportedly stumbled into a neighboring house and sat down on a couch next to a woman and her young child. A police report says Kelly was “mumbling incoherently” and was struck with a vacuum tube by someone inside the home. He was arrested nearby shortly thereafter.
The former Ole Miss star appeared in Arapahoe County Court Wednesday morning and was given his next court date, November 8.
