Denver Broncos Director of Player Personnel Matt Russell was arrested over the holiday weekend for getting in a car accident with a police car. Of all the things to hit…
He is facing charges of driving under the influence. He had an open alcohol container in the car.
Here is the Broncos statement:
“I deeply regret the poor judgment I demonstrated that resulted in my arrest over the weekend,” Russell said in a statement. “I apologize to the Denver Broncos, our fans and the National Football League for this inexcusable mistake. I’m ashamed that I represented this region and the Broncos organization in the manner that I did. I take complete responsibility for my actions and will be fully accountable. Going forward, I will take steps to ensure this never happens again.”
That sucks! It’s not just the players that get into trouble anymore. As a penalty, can the Broncos revert back to having Tim Tebow at quarterback and allowing Peyton Manning to be a free agent again? Sounds like a great solution to me.
