T.J. Ward appears in court, issued summons for strip club incident

AP

An arrest warrant was issued for Broncos safety T.J. Ward on Thursday, charging him with misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace after an incident at a strip club in Denver earlier this month.

Ward appeared in court Friday on those charges and was issued a summons in connection with the case. A $1,900 bond was set and Ward’s next court hearing is set for June 23rd.

The Denver Post reports that Ward was at a strip club on May 10 when there was a disagreement about whether or not he could bring alcohol into the club. Ward reportedly thought the management had said it was fine to do so, but a “confrontation ensued” when members of the staff questioned why he brought it with him.

Ward signed a four-year, $22.5 million deal with the Broncos as a free agent this offseason. He could be subject to league discipline under the personal conduct policy, although there’s much to play out in the legal process before that’s likely to become a possibility.

  1. Typical donkey, I can’t wait for them to choke and get blown out again. Should’ve put Manning’s disappointed face for the picture hahaha

  2. I guess I always shake my head at the gross immaturity of these guys. You are getting paid millions of dollars and how many of these guys are getting into trouble at bars and strips clubs? You can afford to have ANYTHING you want brought to your home. Why go out and invite trouble? Bring your own alcohol in?! Like previous posters stated, buy a drink there.

  3. maybe they didnt serve his brand of whiskey! and on a side note there are many states that do allow patrons to bring in their own bottle and charge fir a set up, for the mixer, the ice, and the glass. apparently some of you have not drank in as many states as i have lol!!

  4. His presence alone attracts more attention to the club and hence more customers. Customer service first, especially with VIP clientele like a highly paid NFL player. Management better get their priorities straight. Dude probably dropped major stacks to get it on in the backroom…

  5. This “disagreement” may be incomplete on the facts.

    First of all, I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to bring personal alcohol into ANY establishment, much less a strip club. All employees know this, especially management…they can lose their license.

    What I’m going to assume is that this particular club had two sections: one section being topless-only (where alcohol is legal to be served) and one section being full-nude (where alcohol is illegal to be served in Colorado).

    And he was trying to take his drink from one section to the next…which isn’t allowed, and he was stopped. Maybe management was trying to give him an exception (nice to be the new famous kid in town…)

  6. It has nothing to do with wanting or not wanting to pay for drinks. A full nude strip club in Colorado doesn’t serve alcohol. So he was either under the impression he could bring his own or he brought his own regardless.

  7. You have this guy facing discipline already for an incident that likely doesn’t even rise to a citation? When will Irsay be disciplined for multiple drug-related felonies?

  8. This incident was over a disagreement about bringing in your own booze to a strip club..TJ who you got workin for you? Lol.

  9. How is it that if there is a disagreement, you just don’t surrender your drink on the spot and apologize to the employees for the misunderstanding? How is it in your best interest to let it escalate to the point where you are arrested?

    You are a pro football player with a high profile in any public setting. You would think that if you are going to a strip bar, you would go out of your way to avoid trouble for the double whammy of being not only arrested but arrested in strip bar?

    Goodell should suspend him for 8 games, one game for being arrested and the other 7 for being the dumbest human being on the planet and that’s saying a lot if you ever read the posts from any number of Viking fans.
