Denver Broncos Cut Chad Kelly After Bizarre Arrest

Denver Broncos backup quarterback Chad Kelly has appeared in court, after being arrested on suspicion of criminal trespassing. "After reviewing all the information and in talking with [head coach Vance Joseph] and [CEO Joe Ellis], we agreed that releasing Chad was the right thing to do".

Elway said the team offered Kelly help and "are supportive of him in every possible way".

The woman called for the man in the house and he allegedly confronted Kelly and hit him on the back with the plastic end of a vacuum cleaner, police said.

According to court records, a couple reported that a stranger entered their home in the Denver suburbs after 1 a.m. Tuesday, sat down on their couch and was "mumbling incoherently".

Kelly posted a $2,500 bond and was released from custody.

Police later found the man, identified as Kelly, inside a black SUV near the Gothic Theater about a block away. One with a guest and another with the hired security team, whom he scrapped with as they escorted him out of the party.

According to Klis, multiple sources report that not only did Kelly attend that party, but was removed from it after acting belligerently. He was later booked at the Arapahoe County Jail but has since been released, Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Audry LaCrone confirmed.

Kelly made an appearance in an Arapahoe County courthouse later Tuesday morning.

Kelly was also dropped from the team at Clemson for "conduct detrimental to the team."

Chad Kelly missed his rookie season while recovering from knee and wrist injuries, then beat out former first-round draft pick Paxton Lynch last summer to serve as the backup for starter Case Keenum. The home's occupant chased the man out of the residence before police came.

Kelly's college career was marred by disciplinary issues.
