On Thursday evening, reports surfaced from the Denver local media that Denver Broncos prized free agent acquisition T.J. Ward has a warrant out for his arrest. According to the report, the warrant stems from an apparent “scuffle at a Denver nightclub.”
From the CBS Denver report:
According to documents reviewed by CBS4, Ward is wanted in connection with an incident that took place May 9 which is categorized both as an assault and disturbing the peace.
The warrant became active Thursday. It was issued for Terrell R. Ward, T.J. Ward’s real name. The date of birth on the warrant matches Ward’s date of birth.
Court records reveal little about what prompted the issuance of the arrest warrant. However, sources say the warrant was issued in connection with a scuffle at a Denver nightclub.
Ward, who made the Pro Bowl just a year ago when playing for the Cleveland Browns, signed a $23 million deal with the Broncos this offseason as part of their stellar 2014 free agency class.
