ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The homeowner of the residence that Broncos backup quarterback Chad Kelly allegedly entered into uninvited early Tuesday morning is speaking out.
Kelly was arrested early Tuesday morning on a charge of first-degree criminal trespass, according to the Englewood Police Department.
The 24-year-old entered the home, sat down on the couch next to a mom holding her small child and started mumbling incoherently, authorities said.
According to the arrest affidavit, the father, Marco Torres, hit the intruder and chased him out of the home but he was caught on a surveillance camera.
“She was really, really scared. She was with my son on the couch,” said Torres.
Torres said that when Kelly walked into the home, the woman woke him up.
Torres confronted Kelly and hit him with an aluminum vacuum tube with plastic ends in the upper back as he kicked Kelly out of the house.
The incident took place less than two blocks away from the Gothic Theater where Von Miller hosted an annual Halloween party for Broncos players.
Following the incident, police found a man matching the description was found inside a black SUV in front of the venue on South Broadway.
He was detained without incident and he identified himself to officers as Kelly.
The male homeowner was brought to the Gothic Theater where he positively identified Kelly as the man who entered the residence uninvited.
The man told officers he wanted to pursue criminal charges. Kelly was then arrested and booked into the Arapahoe County Jail.
Police said the investigation is ongoing.
A scheduled autograph signing by Kelly was cancelled Tuesday.
