DENVER (CBS4)– CBS4 has learned that John Elway III, the 24-year-old son of the Broncos executive, was arrested and jailed over the weekend for domestic violence.
He was later released on $550 cash bond. He was formally held on charges of assault and disturbing the peace.
Sources familiar with the case say that in the last several days, Elway, who goes by the nickname “Jack,” allegedly pushed a 23-year-old woman out of a moving car near the intersection of Colfax Avenue and Lipan Street.
It’s unclear the extent of the woman’s injuries but one source familiar with the case told CBS4 the woman had no visible injuries.
Court records show the incident took place Friday.
Sometime after that, police arrived at the Elway home in Cherry Hills Village where they arrested Jack Elway and took him to the Denver Jail.
Court records show that on Saturday, a Judge set bond and also issued a protection order in the case.
It’s unclear how long Elway was in jail before being released.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Elway is scheduled to appear in court again June 5 at 8:30 a.m.
Reached by phone Sunday morning, Elway’s attorney, Harvey Steinberg, declined to comment on the case.
“This is a personal family matter and the Broncos will not have any additional comment on it,” Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth said.
John Elway III played quarterback at Cherry Creek High School and graduated in 2008. He went on to Arizona State University where he also played football but quit the program there in 2009.
Elway’s facebook page says he graduated from ASU in 2011 after studying business.
