Broncos QB Chad Kelly Arrested for First-Degree Criminal Trespassing

Chad Kelly was arrested early Tuesday morning on charges of first-degree criminal trespassing, according to National Football League insider Ian Rapoport.

If Kelly did not have alcohol in his system and was in some random family's living room mumbling incoherently, what are we to deduce from that? It's not clear if he has an attorney to comment on the case.

Kelly, who was arrested after 1 a.m. on Tuesday morning, entered a residence uninvited and sat down on the couch next to a woman holding her young child.

Marco Torres, another occupant, then confronted Kelly in the living room and hit him with an aluminum vacuum tube in the upper back "as he kicked the male out of the residence".

Kelly was found by police sitting in his SUV outside the Halloween party location, where he had obviously left and apparently intruded on someone's home.

The 24-year-old Kelly posted $2,500 bond Tuesday and was released.

Kelly is the backup quarterback for the Denver Broncos.

The Broncos chose Kelly as the 253 pick in the 7th round of the 2017 draft.

Yikes. Kelly didn't look THAT wonked out in his mugshot, although perhaps he's smiling because he's not entirely aware of the full circumstances of what happened? After being dismissed from Clemson in April 2014 for conduct detrimental to the program, Kelly starred at Ole Miss for two seasons and was later selected by the Broncos in the seventh round of the 2017 draft. Even head coach Vance Joseph backed Kelly and endorsed him possibly getting some starts down the road. Still, the team isn't happy about its second-year quarterback's situation.

The nephew of former Buffalo Bills great Jim Kelly, Chad Kelly played at Red Lion as a freshman until he was suspended for the Lions' final seven games in 2008.

In October 2016, he was involved in a brawl at his brother's high school football game in NY.

Kelly missed his rookie season while recovering from knee and wrist injuries. "They want to know if you've learned from it and won't make the same mistake twice".
