DENVER — Jack Elway’s arrest early Saturday stemmed from a domestic incident in which he allegedly pulled a woman out of his car by the hair, according to an arrest affidavit released Monday.
Elway, the 24-year-old son of Broncos executive John Elway, was allegedly driving with a woman about 1:40 a.m. when an argument broke out, the woman told police.
Near the intersection of West Colfax Avenue and North Lipan Street, Elway reportedly stopped the car and pulled the woman out of the vehicle by her hair extensions, causing some of her real hair to be ripped out. The woman attempted to stand up, at which point Elway shoved her back to the ground, she said.
The alleged victim said she suffered scrapes to her knees and general pain.
Elway allegedly left the scene northbound through the Auraria Campus, police said. The 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. He was later arrested without incident, police said.
A protection order was issued for the alleged victim. She described herself as Elway’s girlfriend of one year.
Elway faces misdemeanor charges of assault and disturbing the peace. He bonded out of jail on $550 cash.
