Broncos’ Melvin Gordon charged with DUI

Broncos running back Melvin Gordon was charged late Tuesday night with driving under the influence and speeding in downtown Denver.

He allegedly was driving between 25 and 39 miles per hour over the speed limit.



Gordon is scheduled for a Nov. 13 court date, per court records.

“We are aware of the situation involving Melvin Gordon,” the Broncos said in a statement. “Our organization has been in communication with him and is in the process of gathering more details.”

The team had an unexpected bye after its initially scheduled game against New England was postponed until this Sunday following a positive COVID-19 test by a Patriots player.

Melvin Gordon could face league discipline

Gordon, 27, could be in line for league discipline following Tuesday’s incident.

Signed to a two-year, $16 million deal this offseason, Gordon leads the Broncos in carries (65), yards rushing (281) and rushing touchdowns (three). The two-time Pro Bowl selection also has 11 catches for 45 yards and a score.

Gordon has rushed for 4,521 yards and 39 touchdowns and added 235 catches for 1,918 yards with 12 scores in 71 career games with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers (2015-19) and Broncos.
