Report: Arrest warrant issued for Broncos safety T.J. Ward

Just two months after he signed with the Broncos, safety T.J. Ward has been involved in an incident that has him wanted by Denver police.

CBS 4 in Denver reports that an arrest warrant was issued for Ward on Thursday in connection with an incident that took place on May 9. According to the police, that incident involved a scuffle at a nightclub that is being categorized as both an assault and disturbing the peace.

The Broncos signed Ward to a four-year, $22.5 million contract in March. His signing was one of the key moves the Broncos made in an aggressive approach to free agency this year.

Ward previously played four seasons for the Browns. Last year he started all 16 games and was chosen to his first Pro Bowl.

    And the beat goes on……
    The public needs to let the Judges know that this is unacceptable and punishable.

    Cleveland seemed estatic to give more money to Donte Whitner. Looks like they made the right choice…. they mustve known something about Ward that we didnt

    I work with a Broncos fan (I’m a Hawks fan), I can’t wait to break the news.

    And true to form, the name calling and judgments are being cast before ALL the facts come out.

  15. allidoiswin55 says: May 22, 2014 6:53 PM

    Typical bronco ! Jk but you’ll hear this in this comment section. Maybe you broncos fans should realize your glass house is breaking with all those sorry comments you had been spewing about others.

    Dude was already stupid. $$ makes you more of what you already are!!

    Whoops. Already coming apart in Denver. Hopefully for Denver fans, that drug cheat Von Miller won’t get caught again and get a year suspension.

  18. uglydingo says: May 22, 2014 6:58 PM

    Peyton – in addition to your excellent QB play, we are going to need you to invest time with TJ as his nanny. He needs a good role model to keep him out of jail.

  19. Slapshot says: May 22, 2014 6:58 PM

    Better call Ray Lewis’ attorney.

  20. ramitbaby says: May 22, 2014 6:59 PM

    A scuffle huh? Hardly newsworthy or “stupid” until something a bit more heinous is at play.

  21. eagleswin says: May 22, 2014 7:04 PM

    I wonder what Eric Winston and Ryan Clark think about this … They had no problem giving their opinions earlier this week.

  22. Matt dog from C-town says: May 22, 2014 7:11 PM

    He managed to stay out of trouble here in Cleveland..but I guess if u mix alcohol/women/nightclub/money/ testosterone and its only a matter of time….

  23. titusyoungslegalcounsel says: May 22, 2014 7:11 PM

    Tahj Gipson hit EJ. Not Ward

  24. orangeisthenewblue says: May 22, 2014 7:14 PM

    Seriously dude! This is the first headline you make for us. Not a way to start

  25. ducksk says: May 22, 2014 7:15 PM

    Move along, nothing to see here folks.

  26. iseek11 says: May 22, 2014 7:15 PM

    “Nightclub” is being generous. Place in question is called PT’s All Nude. C’mon TJ, get with it. You gotta be smarter than that. Did you learn nothing from Pacman Jones?

  27. alshonbrandontandem says: May 22, 2014 7:16 PM

    Cut him Elway – Do the right thing.

  28. thetooloftools says: May 22, 2014 7:16 PM

    He’s Denver’s problem now.
    Joe Hayden MADE him look better that he was. Just a stupid stupid move by T.J.
    Sorry to read this.

    It’s just part of the initiation process for the Donks. At least he made it out alive, unlike some other Donk players.

  31. bizieman says: May 22, 2014 7:18 PM

    Is he guilty already? Seem like we have tried and convicted him a lil to soon folks.

  32. sd619tripleog says: May 22, 2014 7:34 PM

  39. geniusesq says: May 22, 2014 7:48 PM

    Bar fight. Nothing to see here.

    He’s an idiot for even being at a nightclub, but that’s immaturity for you.

    Take your millions, buy a home, and throw parties there. Higher quality parties with professional young ladies to entertain.

  40. mackcarrington says: May 22, 2014 7:54 PM

    Down To The Nightclub…

  41. dabubble says: May 22, 2014 7:55 PM

    Bummer…he could’ve fit right in with the Vikings..

    Hahaha @ denver. Dont always get what ya pay for!

  43. dbfan4ever says: May 22, 2014 8:03 PM

    Wow there are actually zero facts regarding the incident and everyone on here Is ready to lock him up! Unbelievable smh.

  44. mrfrostyj says: May 22, 2014 8:08 PM

    Isn’t this the second year in a row Denver gets someone that Cleveland lets go who then almost immediately has a run in with the law when he gets there?

  45. MostlyRight says: May 22, 2014 8:10 PM

    Once a Brown, always a Brown.

  46. matterson20 says: May 22, 2014 8:19 PM

    Suspension coming.

  47. urbusted2 says: May 22, 2014 8:41 PM

    Wow! Let’s forget the innocent until proven guilty concept. There’s nothing we know right now that says Ward did anything wrong. An arrest warrant is based on probable cause only. That falls well short of any proof necessary to convict someone of a crime. The Browns let him go because of what they were looking for football wise. There were no stories regarding his conduct the entire time he was in Cleveland to my knowledge.

    I was wondering why Oakland didn’t sign this guy. Thanks for clearing it up.

  51. imnotsorryisaidthat says: May 22, 2014 8:54 PM

    Took the coppers two weeks to issue the warrant?..veryyyyyyyyyyyyyy interesting..wonder who is looking for some dollar bills,the alleged victim I will bet

  52. clelek05 says: May 22, 2014 9:11 PM

    Talib will be screwing up next. Without the clamps on him like he had in New England who knows what he’ll do. The Denver off-season will look like the police logs.

  53. camdenyard says: May 22, 2014 9:13 PM

    Scuffle at a NIGHTCLUB? Shocking.

  54. drgreenstreak says: May 22, 2014 9:19 PM

    “… scuffle.”

  55. bbbmf says: May 22, 2014 9:19 PM

    Facts? We don’t need no stinkin facts! Guilty! smh

  56. footballtalk1 says: May 22, 2014 9:37 PM

    Goodell says no double standard, suspends Ward 8 games 5 minutes after story breaks…

  57. oldcracker says: May 22, 2014 9:41 PM

    I don’t know why the Browns didn’t sign him, he seemed like a good player and a good guy. He just made a minor mistake….something many young kids do.

    At least Denver has a night life!

  58. bostonbadass says: May 22, 2014 9:41 PM

    how long do you think he can WARD of the cops… Jesus Christ another idiot who has life right by the Balls & thinks he’s invincible.

  59. thestrategyexpert says: May 22, 2014 9:44 PM

    Wow that sucks, this is a player I vouched for too and now he’s making me look bad, say it ain’t so TJ, say it ain’t so!

  60. scw1993 says: May 22, 2014 9:48 PM

    Is there anyone on the broncos worth paying, or who doesn’t break rules, or choke.

  61. bullcharger says: May 22, 2014 9:51 PM

    and so starts the downfall of the superbowl loser Broncos.

  62. Asian Reporter Tricia Takanawa says: May 22, 2014 9:51 PM

    Some guy started making it rain and TJ got jealous and dove shoulder first into his knee…

  63. hoss408 says: May 22, 2014 10:12 PM

    ^^^ 2 weeks is actually the normal amount of time for a police report to make it through the channels to the district attorneys. They file warrants. Not the cops.

  64. nodindenver says: May 22, 2014 11:10 PM

    If this occurred at PTs all nude, he was basically trolling for lot lizards I was hoping he would play a bit like Steve Atwater did. Pitiful!

  65. swagger52 says: May 22, 2014 11:21 PM

    What do you expect when you get a free agent from the Browns.

    He had been locked up in Cleveland for too many years. Of course, he will go wild when he gets out.

  66. taintedsaints2009 says: May 22, 2014 11:29 PM

    Haha. Nightclub. That’s so cute the media won’t call it what it is: a strip club.

  67. chicagosports2014 says: May 22, 2014 11:35 PM

    Most defensive players are untamed đź’Ş

  68. rocoop says: May 23, 2014 12:19 AM

    And to think some Bronco fans didn’t think this guy would fit in…

  69. ballboy48 says: May 23, 2014 2:09 AM

    Is the media going to apologize to Cleveland, now? It seems like their New GM Ray Farmer knows what he’s doing. The media wanted to do nothing but bash Cleveland for years. Now, they want to come around when things are looking up. If I’m Cleveland, I’d do the bare minimum to accommodate the media.

  70. joetoronto says: May 23, 2014 4:57 AM

    The Bronco’s are giving the 49ers a run for their money as the Team of Turds.

  71. annes22 says: May 23, 2014 8:47 AM

    What’s up with all these Broncos and their behavior? It seems to be all the time they are in trouble.

  72. kosarkid says: May 23, 2014 9:07 AM

    Did the Browns really just catch a break? They made the right choice not going after him and getting Whitmer.

  73. ejm845 says: May 23, 2014 9:55 AM

    Chips a genius no wonder eagles didn’t go after ward he’s in the desean mold

  74. BH says: May 23, 2014 1:00 PM

    How long will the NFL owners (Roger Goodell) tolerate the constant barrage of player criminal conduct? If nothing is done, nothing will change. Obviously, fines and short suspensions are not enough to create a climate of change. True lifetime bans are the only thing that will defray the number of criminals constantly getting into trouble. It sounds like children… Very wealthy children.

  75. fearmycheese says: May 23, 2014 4:16 PM

    Why can’t NFL players JUST STOP committing crimes. It’s that really too hard? Does a team’s head coach must ask the players to stay out of trouble every week?!? Smh
