Jack Elway, the 24-year-old son of the Denver Broncos’ Hall of Famer John Elway, was arrested over the weekend on charges of assault and disturbing the peace after an incident in which he allegedly pushed a woman from a moving car.
John Albert Elway III, who graduated from Arizona State in 2011, was booked into a Denver jail and released Saturday on $550 bail. “This is a personal family matter, and the Broncos will not have any additional comment on it,” Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth said (via the Denver Post). Elway’s father is the Broncos’ executive vice-president of football operations and general manager. A woman who identified herself as Jack Elway’s stepmother declined to comment when reached by the Denver Post.
The woman, according to Denver’s CBS affiliate, had no visible injuries.
Jack Elway played football at ASU, but left the program in 2009. “He’s just tired of football and wants to do something else with his life,” ASU coach Dennis Erickson explained then. “He made a decision, and we all understand it. He would have played here eventually.”
