DENVER — Jack Elway, the son of Denver Broncos executive John Elway, was arrested Saturday morning on misdemeanor charges of assault and disturbing the peace, the Denver County Jail confirmed.

Elway, 24, was released later Saturday on $550 bond, police said.

The alleged incident happened near Colfax Avenue and Lipan Street, according to the Denver Police Department.

The alleged victim, a woman, contacted the Auraria Campus Police Department, and reportedly told officers that Elway was at an address listed to his father in Cherry Hills Village.

A protection order was issued for the alleged victim.

“This is a personal family matter and the Broncos will not have any additional comment on it,” said Patrick Smyth, Director of Media Relations for the team.
