Broncos linebacker arrested, waived hours later

We didn’t think much of it when linebacker Kevin Alexander hit the waiver wire earlier today, losing his roster spot on the Broncos in favor of cornerback Chevis Jackson. Alexander appeared in nine games for Denver, recording just four tackles. He went undrafted out of Clemson this April.

The move became a story when it was revealed that, just hours before he was cut, Alexander was arrested on investigation of assault and battery by Aurora police in Colorado.

Alexander’s girlfriend told officers that the two argued Sunday night after the woman accused Alexander of cheating on her with one of her friends. Alexander allegedly “became mad and eventually grabbed her several times,” before throwing her to the ground.

“He then grabbed her around the throat and pushed her against the wall,” reads the police report. “She states that she was either punched or slapped in the right side of her face.”

The woman also accused Alexander of “punching her once before.”

Alexander was released from jail at 2 p.m. Monday on $2,000 bond.

He has a court date set for Tuesday.

    You gotta be a real tough guy to hit a woman.

    Enjoy your life outside the NFL, loser.

    Young man deserves a second chance.

    Wait… he’s not a starter? Screw ‘im.

    Another wonderful Broncos success story in a season full of them.

    Knowing the way these kinds of things go, he’ll get handled with kid gloves instead of being thrown in the slammer where he belongs.

    Now, had the Broncos simply waived Josh McDaniels at the beginning of the season, maybe their 2010 season wouldn’t have been such a washout.

    Oh no, there goes Denver’s season!

    When it comes to criminals, it looks like the Broncos are taking over for the Ravens and Bengals.

    Do the Broncos have film of the incident? Wouldn’t surprise me.

    Not so incredibly, the Broncos cannot right the ship. This organization needs a total face lift, from Joe Ellis, to the coaching staff, to the General Manager, and probably several other front office types.

    They have failed at putting a quality football team on the field for two years. They have failed at having a minimum of good character/bad players, rather they have bad characters who also play badly. The front office has failed at treating season ticket holders like valued patrons, and the visibility in the community has gone off the radar.

    The Broncos have lost the city and for the first time since the laughable AFL years, they are endangered of becoming second banana in town, with the Rockies on the rise.

    Pat, you need to pull the plug and start over.

    @joerevs300 …

    Assuming you don’t mean he’ll get handled with kid glove because he’s a football player. It would be unusual for any man to receive a serious sentence on a first offense in a situation like this. One problem is that the women often drop it long before it goes that far. Since her complaint probably played a role in him being waived, he’s going to be doubly angry now. She should get as far from away him as she can. Hate to say it, but knowing the way these kinds of things go, she’ll probably feel bad that he lost his job and take him back.

    “Now, had the Broncos simply waived Josh McDaniels at the beginning of the season, maybe their 2010 season wouldn’t have been such a washout.”

    Memo; You dont have talent. McDaniels ran it all away. It wouldnt have mattered. Just watched Cutler and Bears clinch NFC North. Now who got the best of that deal? Denver is transitioning, and they still have no QB, but Tebow is a winner. Will be interesting to see if they can add some pieces on defense. Champ Bailey is gone after this season.

    I’m a Chargers fan, and I hate the Broncos, but I firmly believe that it’s totally unfair to assume that this guy is guilty before he’s convicted, especially when all we have to go on are the accusations made by a jealous lover.

    I understand that PFT needs to report the facts of this case, and they seem to have done fine in that regard… It’s the idiots forming conclusions in the comments section which need to grow a brain.

  16. Deb says: Dec 21, 2010 12:25 AM

    @natelan …

    You’re right. He’s entitled to the presumption of innocence. I was reacting generically to the comment about him probably being treated with kid gloves when, if he’s guilty, he’ll be treated like any other person in this circumstance. It’s not the kind of charge that would result in a man being locked away for a long period. If she were telling the truth, she should give him a wide berth. But she in all likelihood, she wouldn’t.

    nataly?

    I hate the broncos too, but since you brought up the fact- your chargers (if they make the post season) will be one and done!

    Rivers=Marino!

    Yea, the court system goes really light on football players.

    Uhmmm, if they arrested him chances are they had probably cause. Like I don’t know, a bruise or something.

    But maybe she slapped herself before boiling his bunny in the pot.

  20. imongo says: Dec 21, 2010 9:19 AM

    Wow…This never happens. Those prison football teams must sport some amazing talent.

    I’m not a lawyer and I don’t live in Colorado, but my understanding is that most (if not all) states require one or both parties of a domestic disturbance to be arrested, no probable cause is necessary. Just a simple accusation is usually good enough to get someone (usually the male half) locked up for the night.

    I’m not saying he’s innocent, but saying he’s guilty would be equally irresponsible at this stage. Unless he has prior arrests for assault and/or unless there are photos or witness accounts, he is entitled to his presumption of innocence.

    A) What is your point? Do you have A.D.H.D.? Take your medication and try to stay on point.

    B) I happen to agree with you that my Chargers will likely NOT make the playoffs, and if they do, they likely won’t get far. Teams like the Patriots, Ravens and Steelers are too good for us.

    C) Rivers has been a starter for fewer than 4 full seasons (he’s in his 6th year, but backed-up a starting Drew Brees for his first 2) so claiming that he will never win a championship is a bit obtuse and nearsighted. Besides, comparing him to a championship-less Dan Fours might be more apropos. Either way, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind mirroring either man’s career. It’s earned him 100 million so far.

    I’m still scratching my head trying to figure out what your point is…
