New information emerged Wednesday regarding the recent driving under the influence arrests of two Denver Broncos executives.
Heckert was stopped in Parker, Colo., after his car struck the median and almost hit a stoplight, according an affidavit obtained by NFL Network and NFL.com.
According to the affidavit, 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.
The Broncos publicly have indicated that both men will be punished and the discipline should be significant.
Mike Klis of The Post reported that the team consulted with the NFL on Wednesday, but punishment might take a week to work out.
"This is bigger than football," Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth said. "It's obviously very serious. We need to make sure we handle this the right way and give careful consideration to all of the issues involved. That process takes time."
