Broncos QB Chad Kelly Arrested for First-Degree Criminal Trespassing

This is not a good look for Chad Kelly.

According to reports, backup quarterback Chad Kelly was arrested at 1:17 a.m. MT in Englewood, CO for first-degree criminal trespassing.

The Broncos drafted Kelly in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and he beat out Paxton Lynch during the preseason for the backup role behind Case Keenum.

Cops searched the area, the release said, before finding a male in a black auto in the area, who was identified as Kelly, matching the description given by the homeowner. "We're in the process of getting all the facts and talking to Chad and then we'll figure out exactly which direction we're going to go". Although Kelly brought an attitude that had often crossed the line in college, Broncos general manager John Elway said fellow Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly personally vouched for his nephew, so Elway signed off on the selection.

The Broncos confirmed the arrest in a boiler-plate statement on Tuesday.

Sen. Cruz Says He Will Serve Full Term if Re-Elected in Texas
People have been waiting in line since Sunday to get in to President Donald Trump's rally in Houston , Texas for Sen. Ted Cruz (R) is now polling ahead of his challenger, enjoying a steady lead in deep-red Texas.


However, there were character concerns surrounding Kelly ever since his college days, and now, this incident has come to light. He appeared in court at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday morning and was represented by a public defender. "So, we'll see. It hasn't happened yet, but if he had to play, I would trust Chad to play for us".

Personal health is the priority over football as this is now the third issue relating to violence and the second arrest in just four years for Kelly.

This is not the first time Kelly has been in trouble.

He was kicked off the Clemson team in 2014 after arguing with coaches during the spring game. The man was then taken into custody without incident and identified by police as Kelly. His plea deal resulted in criminal charges being dropped in favor of a guilty plea to disorderly conduct and was ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service.

Kelly missed his rookie season while recovering from knee and wrist injuries. "You like ... when they get together and the camaraderie that goes along with being a team. They want to know if you've learned from it and won't make the same mistake twice".
