Denver Broncos back-up quarterback Chad Kelly was arrested early this morning and charged with first-degree criminal trespassing.
The former seventh-round pick has a history of off-field incidents from his time at both Clemson and Ole Miss.
Now, we have more details on what happened with Kelly, and it doesn’t paint a great picture for the nephew of legendary former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly.
According to the Chad Kelly arrest affidavit, he entered a couple’s house, sat on the couch, and was hit with a vacuum tube until he left.
Police later found and detained 24-year old “without incident.”
From the affidavit, via Broncos beat writer Ryan Koenigsberg:
“Upon arrival Your Affiant contacted TORRES, MARCO (DOB 05-13-1983) and LOZANO, NANCY (DOB 04-29-1993). Nancy was holding their young child identified as (redacted). Your affiant learned that Nancy was seated on the couch just inside the front door while holding (redacted) when an unknown male entered the residence uninvited and sat down on the couch next to her mumbling incoherently.
“Nancy called for Marco who confronted the male in the living room and hit him with a stick in the upper back as he kicked the male out of the residence. The stick was later identified by Your Affiant as an aluminum vacuum tube with plastic ends, about two to three feet in length. Marco advised the doors to his residence were locked, although Your Affiant found no signs of forced entry. Marco showed Your Affiant security video of the front of his house which identifies the male as a white male wearing dark pants, a white long sleeve shirt with a brown vest and a red scarf around his neck. The males clothing appears disheveled and he has a tattoo on his chest.
“Englewood PD officers in the area located a male matching that description in front of the Gothic Theatre located at 3263 S Broadway in the City of Englewood, County or Arapahoe and State of Colorado. The male was detained without incident and verbally identified himself to officers as KELLY, CHAD (DOB 03-25-1994). Chad was also recognized by officers on scene as being Chad Kelly.”
Kelly was taken to a local hospital, but was not injured after being hit by the tube by Torres.
Interestingly, the quarterback reportedly had no alcohol in his system at the time of his arrest, according to other court documents.
