Denver NBC news station 9News is reporting that Broncos rookie tight end Richard Quinn was arrested on harassment charges related to domestic violence/obstruction of phone services Monday afternoon.
As Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post points out, Quinn is being held without bond and is scheduled to appear in court 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.
According to the report, Quinn shook his girlfriend to the ground and prevented her from calling police. Quinn states he shook her after she began hitting him in the face, but he police report indicates that Quinn had no sign of injuries.
The Broncos traded back into the second round of this year’s draft to select Quinn, a controversial move considering that many independent draft rankings had projected the North Carolina product to be drafted much later (if at all). Today’s events are sure to only add to that controversy.
