Denver Broncos quarterback Chad Kelly is in trouble with the law on a very serious charge. On Tuesday, October 23 it was reported that the backup signal-caller was arrested on a charge of first-degree criminal trespassing. Kelly allegedly entered a home at approximately 1:00 a.m. and was chased out of the home by the owner.

The 24-year-old is the nephew of Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly.

“We are disappointed that Chad Kelly was arrested early this morning. Our organization has been in contact with Chad, and we are in the process of gathering more information,” the Broncos said in a statement acknowledging Kelly’s arrest.

Kelly was booked into Arapahoe County Jail.

From the report:

At 1:17 a.m., officers with the Englewood Police Department responded to the 3200 block of S. Lincoln Street after receiving a report of a man standing outside a residence. While officers were responding to the scene, they learned the man had entered the home. He was chased back outside by a homeowner. Officers searched the area and a short time later, located a man matching the description provided by the homeowner. He was in a black SUV near the Gothic Theatre.

Chad Kelly began his college football career at Clemson University before being dismissed for conduct detrimental to the team. He would then transfer to East Mississippi Community College where he led the Lions to a perfect 12-0 record and the NJCAA national champion. He would then transfer to Ole Miss to finish out his career. Kelly was drafted by the Broncos with the final pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Despite being considered a high-end talent, Kelly fell to the final round due to character concerns.

More information on the severity of the charge can be seen below.

From RMLawyers.com:

In Col­orado, “crim­i­nal tres­pass” is the crime of unlaw­fully enter­ing or remain­ing on another’s prop­erty, and the seri­ous­ness of the offense depends upon the type of prop­erty tres­passed upon and the trespasser’s state of mind.  There are three degrees of crim­i­nal tres­pass rang­ing from a class 1 petty offense to a class 4 felony.

First degree crim­i­nal tres­pass, Colo. Rev. Stat. § 18–4-502

A per­son com­mits first degree crim­i­nal tres­pass if he or she know­ingly and unlaw­fully enters or remains in another’s dwelling, or if he or she enters any motor vehi­cle with the intent to com­mit a crime inside that vehicle.

First degree crim­i­nal tres­pass is a class 5 felony that car­ries a pre­sump­tive min­i­mum sen­tence of one year of impris­on­ment and a pre­sump­tive max­i­mum sen­tence of three years.  Under extra­or­di­nary aggra­vat­ing cir­cum­stances, a court may impose a sen­tence of more than three years, and under extra­or­di­nary mit­i­gat­ing cir­cum­stances, a court may impose a sen­tence of less than one year.
