John Elway’s son was arrested early Saturday near a college on charges of disturbing the peace and assault, according to Auraria Campus Police. Jack Elway, 24, was released later on $550 bond with a protection order issued by the victim.

The Denver Broncos declined to comment. “This is a personal family matter, and the Broncos will not have any additional comment on it,” the team said through a spokesperson. Elway was picked up by police at his father’s home in the Cherry Hill’s Village in Denver.

According to jail records, Elway was booked into jail for an incident that occurred near a college campus in the downtown district. Police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez says she can’t provide any details about what led to the arrest, other than the alleged victim was a female.

John Elway posted his bail. His son is schedule to make a court appearance on June 5. Jail records do not indicate if he has an attorney.

Elway, a graduate of Cherry Creek High School in 2008 and Arizona State University in 2011, lives in Newport Beach, California, according to his Facebook page.

Jack Elway received all-state football honors in his senior year at Cherry Creek and was recruited by Arizona State.

Elway left the ASU football team in April 2009 when he was one of five quarterbacks competing for the starting quarterback job.

“He’s just tired of football and wants to do something else with his life,” ASU coach Dennis Erickson said at the time. “He made a decision, and we all understand it. He would have played here eventually.”
