Kelly, the backup quarterback for the Denver Broncos, was charged with first-degree criminal trespassing in Englewood, Colo.

According to the Englewood Police Department, at approximately 1:17 a.m., officers responded to an address on the 3200 block of South Lincoln Street regarding "a male standing outside a residence". She told police he sat down next to her and was "mumbling incoherently". The woman yelled out to a man in the house, identified as Marco Torres, who confronted the intruder, hit him with a vacuum tube and chased him out of the house.

The man told police the doors to the residence were locked, but there were no signs of forced entry, according to the affidavit. All options - including release - on the table for Kelly.

Kelly was taken to jail for investigation of first-degree criminal trespass and appeared in court earlier this morning but has since been released.

"We're very, very disappointed in Chad and the situation he put himself into..."


Kelly, who was the last player picked in the 2016 draft, hasn't attempted a pass in the regular season. At the time of Kelly's arrest, some fellow Broncos were attending a Halloween party inside the Gothic; it's unclear whether Kelly had been at the party earlier.

The party at the Gothic Theater was still going strong when a security guard believes he may have seen Chad Kelly leave the building.

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. "Our organization has been in contact with Chad, and we are in the process of gathering more information", the release said. Prior to arriving on campus, Kelly was arrested for allegedly telling a bouncer, "I'm going to go to my auto and get my AK-47 and spray this place". 'Kelly met with Clemson coaches today.

"We are reviewing the matter", the National Football League said in an email to The Associated Press.
