Elvis Dumervil’s camp claims the gun wasn’t his

Elvis Dumervil

Elvis Dumervil’s defense after his recent arrest in Miami for felony aggravated assault with a firearm will apparently be that the gun found in the car he was driving didn’t belong to him.

The Denver Post reports sources close to Dumervil, a Pro Bowl defensive end for the Broncos, say Dumervil isn’t the owner of the car he was driving, and isn’t the owner of the gun found in that car, either.

Dumervil is accused of getting out of his car during a road rage incident, walking up to another car that was stuck in traffic, yelling at the driver and lifting his shirt to show that he was carrying a gun. An employee at a nearby store witnessed the incident and called police, apparently confirming most of what the victim in the case told police.

Dumervil’s problems on the road aren’t limited to offseason visits to his hometown of Miami. He has pleaded guilty in at least six traffic incidents in Colorado since he was drafted by the Broncos, ranging from speeding at more than 20 mph over the speed limit to driving on a suspended license.

    Oh, I just don’t have a clue how that gun got in there. After waving it around and threatening people, the cop planted it. Honest…..

    Easy solution: charge them all and let a judge or jury decide.

    Aint mine yo………RIGHT!

  4. jeffw says: Jul 16, 2012 10:19 PM

    Of course it’s not his… he was just holding it for a friend. What do you think? He’s stupid or something?

  5. canetic says: Jul 16, 2012 10:22 PM

    It’s just a coincidence that several eyewitnesses saw him and his friend each with a gun, and then they found two guns in the car. It’s a shame that being a liar isn’t also a crime.

    Silly things such as evidence shouldn’t matter here, give him 16 games it’s only fair.

  7. walker615 says: Jul 16, 2012 10:26 PM

    I am a diehard broncos fan, and I desperately wish this story wasn’t real.. But I don’t buy this story for a second.

    C’mon Doom. I don’t think he’s a bad guy, just sounds like some serious anger issues. Grow up

  8. objectivenflfan says: Jul 16, 2012 10:26 PM

    Any Denver Sports writer, radio host, fan, or media person will tell you this isn’t what Elvis Dumervil exhibits on and off the field.

    But hang out with some better dudes, dude.

  9. purpleguy says: Jul 16, 2012 10:29 PM

    So the handgun he had sticking down his pants which he threatened another motorist with during a road rage fight wasn’t his? Well, if that’s the case he’s clearly innocent.

  10. savior72 says: Jul 16, 2012 10:31 PM

    So will he still at least be charged for the road rage incident? Why is this guy ” borrowing” a car? Your Toyota was in the shop?

  11. rekingcrew says: Jul 16, 2012 10:32 PM

    He was holding it for Micheal Irvins brother!

  12. wtfru2 says: Jul 16, 2012 10:37 PM

    As someone said yesterday, Dumberville/////

  13. talkintrashallday says: Jul 16, 2012 10:41 PM

    i’m tired of how pro athletes get treated like royalty. if that was the average joe, we’d be charged by now. total BS

  14. jbowman374 says: Jul 16, 2012 10:42 PM

    I think it’s obvious that he’s trying to get his homeboy to copp to possessing the pistols in exchange for some canteen money/financial compensation when he gets out the Bing.

    Yeesh. Not sure what happens there, but this kind of thing will land you in the clink for some time in some court rooms.

  18. terrellblowens says: Jul 16, 2012 10:48 PM

    Guys, he was just waving the gun around to see if anyone nearby dropped theirs in his borrowed vehicle!

  19. maxpowr says: Jul 16, 2012 10:53 PM

    L O L . . .

  20. ezwriter69 says: Jul 16, 2012 10:57 PM

    Two guys, two guns in the car; witnesses say they both had guns in their belts that they showed. Don’t think it matters who was the owner of the gun, he’s toast.

  21. doe22us says: Jul 16, 2012 10:59 PM

    An ass-h… with money these guys disgust me.

  22. dgforreal says: Jul 16, 2012 11:10 PM

    walking up to another car that was stuck in traffic, yelling at the driver and lifting his shirt to show that he was carrying a gun.

    Why would you do that?

  23. ialwayswantedtobeabanker says: Jul 16, 2012 11:10 PM

    What blows my mind is how Dumervil brandished a firearm over a run-of-the-mill traffic situation – – – yet didn’t react at all when Marcus Vick (Mike Vick’s brother) stomped on his back while in college.

  24. seahulk9 says: Jul 16, 2012 11:10 PM

    hahahahahahaha!!!!!!

  25. buccaneerz78 says: Jul 16, 2012 11:13 PM

    Winner…

  26. skolvikes says: Jul 16, 2012 11:15 PM

    I’m no legal expert by any means, but wouldn’t that information be a bad thing for Dumervil?

    If a witness corroborates the drivers story, wouldn’t that add unlawful possession of a firearm to the list?

  27. raiderinva says: Jul 16, 2012 11:16 PM

    This also just in ….

    Elvis Dumervil has recently hired Adam “Pacman” Jones as the newest member of the brain trust to his camp.

    Pacman’s first issued advice, “It was not me” defense. If there is a question as to the validity of this defense our first expert witness will be Tank Johnson.

    At this exact moment in time: Rolando McClain just slapped his fore head in wonderment as to why he did not think of this. Then the realization set in the he should have attended the NFL rookie symposium.

  28. thejuddstir says: Jul 16, 2012 11:20 PM

    Wasn’t his car……wasn’t his gun , so what the hell was the gun doing in his pants. Guilty

  29. cali49er707 says: Jul 16, 2012 11:24 PM

    HEY………….IT WASN’T HIS GUN!!!!

    and that BABY AIN’T MINE!!!!

    yeah… and the booze wasn’t mine either… urp.

    Dumberville is a town near Denver Colorado.

  32. danielcp0303 says: Jul 16, 2012 11:45 PM

    Does it matter that both of those things aren’t his? If he still used the gun to threaten someone, that’s still a crime.

  33. tweeter75 says: Jul 16, 2012 11:45 PM

    LOL

  34. mf7krime says: Jul 16, 2012 11:52 PM

    This is more serious than a 16 game suspension. This is jail time we’re talking about here. You can’t threaten people like that, especially with a rap sheet of any kind even minor offenses.

    If the driver or a passenger in the vehicle had a firearm, they may have been in their right to shoot both of them right then and there.

    dumb dumb dumb

  35. agc99 says: Jul 16, 2012 11:52 PM

    Being an NFL player doesn’t give you the right to wave a gun in the face of person under any circumstance. Why isn’t he treated like everyone else? Throw him in jail.

    Eddie Murphy: “Wasn’t me”

  37. fdugrad says: Jul 17, 2012 12:13 AM

    Not only wasn’t it his car or his gun, it wasn’t even HIM!!! Case closed!!

  38. whitecastleisafoodgroup says: Jul 17, 2012 12:26 AM

    “Yes, that is a gun in my pocket and no I am not happy to see you. Please move along now.”

    I’m sure that’s exactly what happened.

  39. theecowardlylion says: Jul 17, 2012 12:32 AM

    Elvis aint gonna fall for the ol’ banana in the tailpipe.

  40. 7pints says: Jul 17, 2012 12:36 AM

    Did any of the previous posters read the actual police report? Evidently not. “several eye witnesses”, “waving guns around”. I guess reading headlines and drawing unfounded conclusions are easier… much easier.

  41. thegreatgabbert says: Jul 17, 2012 1:34 AM

    Broncos have become a turd dump. At least Josh McDaniels had enough sense to pass on Dez Bryant.

  42. thegreatgabbert says: Jul 17, 2012 1:36 AM

    Someone broke into Elvis’ car. He never would have known except they left their gun in his glove compartment.

  43. odawg31 says: Jul 17, 2012 2:33 AM

    Elvis DumberthanHELL!
    or
    Elvis Dumberville!

    REALLY?!? 2 guys w/ guns to scare 1 woman. Who was she SHE HULK?

  44. odawg31 says: Jul 17, 2012 2:37 AM

    Shouldnt matter if its his or not.. If witnesses say he was brandishing it, to threaten, case closed.

    Goodell make an example of this guy please!
    8 games minimum.

  45. ty46 says: Jul 17, 2012 3:20 AM

    Let the fingerprints decide. If he took it out of his pants and put it away, he has his prints on it. Doubt he was smart enough to wipe them.

    But why did police only find one gun, if both guys raised their shirts to show one gun each?

  46. culturalelitist says: Jul 17, 2012 3:31 AM

    From now on if I do anything stupid, I’m just going to have people talk to my camp.

  47. contract says: Jul 17, 2012 3:38 AM

    And he thinks that flashing a gun that isn’t his is somehow better?

  48. rasalghoul says: Jul 17, 2012 4:06 AM

    Ahhh… The old Michael Irvin defense. “It’s not mine, someone asked me to hold on to that for them, I borrowed this car, I’m trying to help a friend out, did I mention that I am famous?”
    If the gun don’t fit, you must acquit.

  49. mamsy2000 says: Jul 17, 2012 4:34 AM

    Slow down everyone!! Remember OJ was innocent too…..

  50. joetoronto says: Jul 17, 2012 4:54 AM

    He’s a time bomb waiting to go off, time to flush this turd.

  51. papichulo55 says: Jul 17, 2012 5:53 AM

    He needs a serious talk with Plaxico. Wonder if the league has something like that? There is a clear problem with the lifestyles of some of these players. The league should look into player-to-player counseling. Tired of reading the same crap. Such a waste…

  52. nashwaakkidd says: Jul 17, 2012 6:40 AM

    if he’s guilty, boot him for a year

  53. metalhead65 says: Jul 17, 2012 7:47 AM

    while this a serious incident who are we kidding when you start talking about jail time? this is not you or me who would be sitting jail had we been accused of this. no after months of plea bargaining and him missing no games he will end up with a misdemeanor at worse pay his fine and be put on double secret probation until the next time he gets pulled over and the process repeats itself. face it until these animals are treated the same as the average joe and do the time for the crime nothing will change their behavior. they need to be suspended as soon as they are arrested until the legal issues are taken care of.want to play then stop dragging the case thru court with postponements and delays. if you are innocent then you should be able to prove it without all the run around trying to find loopholes to get you off.

  54. bronco3nj7nation says: Jul 17, 2012 12:49 PM

    if its not his car nor his gun should read more and would see he is not getting charged so people open your eyes and read don’t be haters

  55. badintent says: Jul 17, 2012 1:53 PM

    If I’m as big as this guy, I don’t need a gun to threat someone. What a coward. Wait till they get his butt in the shower in the can, he’ll cry like a baby.

  56. rcali says: Aug 7, 2012 3:50 PM

    Crockett and Tubbs would have never let him get away with it. Castillo would have thrown the book at him!
