Denver Broncos backup quarterback Chad Kelly was arrested and charged with first-degree criminal trespassing.
Early Tuesday morning, Englewood police were called to ahome because a male figure was seen standing outside the residence. While responding to the call, the officers were told that the man, Chad Kelly, somehow entered the home. Kelly was chased out of the residence by a male occupant and was later found inside a black SUV, where teammate Von Miller was reportedly hosting a Halloween party.
He has since posted a $2,500 bond and was scheduled to have a court appearance on Wednesday morning.
First-degree criminal trespass is a Class 5 felony in Colorado, and can be punished by 1-4 years imprisonment and/or a fine between $1,000 and $100,000.
Statement from the #Broncos following the arrest of QB Chad Kelly:

Kelly was selected as the final pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, earning the moniker “Mr. Irrelevant.” He didn’t play in 2017, but then beat out Paxton Lynch to serve as Case Keenum’s backup this season.
