DENVER — Jack Elway, the son of Broncos general manager John Elway, pleaded not guilty in a domestic violence case and his court appearance scheduled for Thursday was canceled.

A jury trial was scheduled for Aug. 6.

Jack Elway was arrested after he allegedly pushed his girlfriend to the ground and tore out pieces of her hair during a fight while they were driving on West Colfax Avenue near North Lipan Street early Saturday morning, according to a police affidavit.

Elway allegedly left the scene northbound through the Auraria Campus, police said. The woman contacted the Auraria Campus Police Department, and reportedly told officers 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.
