Photos: 34 Broncos arrests since 2000, third most of any team
In the wake of Elvis Dumervil's Miami bust over the weekend, the Denver Post noted that the Broncos are third in the NFL since 2000 (behind only Minnesota and Cincinnati) in an extremely dubious category: most arrests. The paper's source: an amazing database created by the San Diego Union-Tribune, which counts 34 booked Broncos in the past twelve years. See photos and info about all of them below.
Big photos below.
As you'll see, some players past and present did more than their share to contribute to the total, by getting arrested multiple times. (Bet you can guess who sets the high mark.) And while plenty of them will be familiar only to Broncos fans with the longest memories, others are hardly obscure -- including the iconic player who kicked off the list in January 2000.
Equally interesting are the number of cases that were eventually dropped -- developments sure to raise questions about the interaction of fame, money, access to high-rent legal resources and justice.
The specifics about each incident come courtesy of the Union-Tribune's database, which is a fascinating resource and well worth visiting for those intrigued by the dark side of America's real national pastime.
