Jack Elway pleads not guilty to assault charge in fight with girlfriend; trial set for Aug. 6
DENVER — Jack Elway, the son of Broncos general manager John Elway, pleaded not guilty in a domestic violence case and his court appearance scheduled for Thursday was canceled.
A jury trial was scheduled for Aug. 6. Jack Elway is charged with disturbing the peace and assault charges.
Jack Elway was arrested after he allegedly pushed his girlfriend of one year to the ground and tore out pieces of her hair during a fight while they were driving on West Colfax Avenue near North Lipan Street early Saturday morning, according to a police affidavit.
The affidavit claims Jack Elway stopped the vehicle and pulled the woman out by her hair. Some of the woman’s real hair and hair extensions were ripped out during the incident, the affidavit says. When the woman tried to stand and get back into the vehicle, Jack Elway allegedly pushed her back to the ground.
Elway then allegedly left the scene northbound through the Auraria Campus, police said. The woman contacted the Auraria Campus Police Department and reportedly told officers Elway was at an address listed to his father in Cherry Hills Village. He was later arrested without incident, police said.
A protection order was issued for the alleged victim.
