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.
