Denver Broncos Executives Facing Suspensions


A pair of Denver Broncos executives are facing suspensions by the team as a result of recent DUI arrests, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

Broncos director of player personnel Matt Russell has been suspended indefinitely without pay, while pro personnel director Tom Heckert has been suspended one month without pay.

The Broncos are also providing treatment for the men, should it be needed.

Earlier this month, Russell, 40, slammed into a parked police vehicle in Breckenridge, Colorado just minutes after crashing into a vehicle in nearby Frisco.

He faces charges of DUI, driving with an open container, careless driving resulting in injury, and failure to show proof of insurance.

On June 11, Heckert, 45, was charged with a DUI and careless driving in Parker, Colorado. He had previously served as general manager of the Cleveland Browns.
