DENVER (AP) - Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno could face charges of drunken driving and careless driving after getting pulled over in south Denver.
Denver police Lt. Matthew Murray confirms Moreno was pulled over on southbound Interstate 25 south of Hampden Avenue around 1:30 a.m. Feb. 1 after allegedly driving 70 mph in a construction zone where the speed limit was 45 mph.
Murray says Moreno voluntarily submitted to a blood test, but results weren't available yet Monday. He says Moreno could face charges of DUI and careless driving.
The Broncos issued a written statement saying: "We take the incident involving Knowshon Moreno very seriously and are thoroughly reviewing this matter. Our organization will continue to gather information and closely monitor this issue while the legal process takes it course."
