Now-former Denver Broncos quarterback Chad Kelly was arrested early Tuesday morning, after entering a Colorado family’s home around 1 a.m.
Kelly entered the home uninvited, and sat on a couch near the front door, next to the woman who lived there and her young child. He was eventually chased out of the home, after one of its residents hit him with a vacuum tube.
Police later found him nearby and detained him. Kelly was charged with first-degree criminal trespassing.
Earlier in the night, Chad Kelly attended an annual cowboy-themed party hosted by Von Miller.
While at the party, the quarterback reportedly got into an altercation with another guest, and later, the security hired for the event.
Kelly was released by the Broncos on Wednesday morning.

Kelly is no stranger to controversy. He was dismissed by Clemson for “conduct detrimental to the team” after an incident at the school. Shortly after committing to Ole Miss as a transfer, he was arrested in his hometown of Buffalo, after getting into it with bouncers at a club, whom he threatened to shoot.
He was also kicked off of his first high school football team in Red Lion, Pennsylvania for undisclosed disciplinary issues, prompting his move to Buffalo, where his uncle Jim Kelly was a legendary quarterback for the Bills.
