Broncos director of pro personnel Tom Heckert blew a 0.162 on his breath test nearly seven hours after his June 11 DUI arrest, according to information The Denver Post obtained from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. That's nearly double Colorado's legal limit of .08.
Heckert was stopped in Parker, Colo., after his car struck the median and almost hit a stoplight, according to the Douglas County records.
The Denver Post and WZVN-TV reported that Broncos director of player personnel Matt Russell's blood-alcohol content was measured at 0.246 when he was arrested July 6. That's more than three times the legal limit.
A Colorado State Patrol arrest affidavit obtained by The Post and the TV station said Russell had an open bottle of peppermint schnapps in his truck at the time of his arrest in Breckenridge, Colo. He allegedly was traveling 40 mph when he hit a parked police car, sending the officer who was inside to the hospital with neck and back pain and lacerations to his right arm. Minutes earlier, Russell had hit another vehicle in Frisco, Colo., police said.
This is kind of unreal. It's almost come to be expected that the players are going to do stupid poo and get arrested, but this is two high level executives with the Broncos. These guys were WASTED. Blowing a .16 SEVEN hours after the fact. Lol what the fug is going on up there in Denver?
