Jim Kelly's nephew, Chad Kelly, arrested

Posted October 24, 2018

A backup quarterback for the Broncos was arrested Tuesday morning for allegedly walking into a odd house, frightening the people inside.

The nephew of former Buffalo Bills and Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, Chad Kelly, was arrested in Colorado. While police were en route, the man entered the residence and sat down on a couch just inside the front door, next to a woman and her young child.

Police say they found a man nearby matching the intruder's description and identified him as Kelly, who is 24.

According to court records, a couple told police that a stranger came into their Englewood home after 1 a.m.

Following his arrest, Kelly was transported to Arapahoe County Jail, where he was booked on a first-degree criminal trespassing charge and later released after posting a $2,500 bond.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Chad Kelly met with Broncos Vice President of Football Operations John Elway Tuesday morning. "Our organization has been in contact with Chad, and we are in the process of gathering more information", the statement read. When they arrived, the male had gone inside and been chased out by the homeowner. "But obviously very disappointed in Chad".

Teammate Von Miller held a players-only Halloween party at the theatre on Monday night.

Details are not yet known, but it sounds as though Kelly entered someone's residence when he was not welcome. We're going to look into it very, very seriously.

Kelly, who was taken in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, hasn't thrown a pass in an NFL game.

Kelly beat out Paxton Lynch for the Broncos' backup quarterback job over the summer. In 2015, he was ordered to perform 50 hours of community service after pleading guilty to a non-criminal charge of disorderly conduct, according to CBS Sports.

Kelly aka Swag played for Clemson in 2013 and was 10-for-17 for 58 yards, but was dismissed following 2014 spring practice.
