Kelly's time in Denver didn't last long, as they waived the backup quarterback today following his arrest on Tuesday morning for criminal trespassing. "After reviewing all the information and in talking with (coach) Vance (Joseph) and (president) Joe (Ellis), we agreed that releasing Chad was the right thing to do". Another occupant then confronted Kelly in the living room and hit him with an aluminum vacuum tube in the upper back, kicking Kelly out of the house. According to the press release from the Englewood (Colo.) Police Department, Kelly was chased out of a residence he illegally entered.
About half an hour before the Broncos released him, Kelly appeared in Arapahoe County Court, where a court date of November 8 was set for filing charges. Police said officers made the arrest "without incident".
That's all out the window now, and this latest arrest makes it even harder for Kelly to be trusted by teams going forward.
When police conducted a search of the area, they found Kelly in a black SUV near a local concert venue.
Throughout his collegiate career, Chad Kelly was given second chances by programs despite his inconsistent play on the field and his problems off of it. Kelly was arrested in a nightclub altercation in 2014, and he was dismissed from Clemson's program earlier in the year. The investigation is ongoing, according to police.
He posted the $2,500 bond and was released later Tuesday.
While details remain bare, NFL Network reported that Broncos players were "not happy" with Kelly's behavior at the party.
Kelly - who is the nephew of famed Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly - had attended a Halloween party in Englewood Monday night, hosted by teammate Von Miller.
