DENVER (AP) - Police have issued an arrest warrant for Broncos safety T.J. Ward on an assault charge stemming from a fight at a Denver strip club on May 9.
The Broncos issued a statement saying, "We have been aware of this issue and will continue to review all of the facts."
Court records show the disturbance happened at PT's All Nude. Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson did not know details of the incident but described it as "some type of disturbance at a nightclub." He said Ward will be charged with a misdemeanor count of assault.
Ward is coming off a Pro Bowl season in Cleveland and this spring signed a four-year, $22.5 million deal with Denver, where he'll play strong safety.
