CBS4 in Denver is reporting that police have issued an arrest warrant for new Broncos safety T.J. Ward. The warrant is related to an alleged scuffle that took place at a local strip club in May, which CBS4 describes as being “categorized both as an assault and disturbing the peace.” At this time, details of the incident and the warrant are sparse. And CBS4 Sportscaster Vic Lombardi took to Twitter to offer additional background on what he’s hearing:

Ward is one of the Broncos’ biggest free agent signings and is expected to play a key role in solidifying the team’s defense. Let’s hope this is nothing more than an misunderstanding or at least a minor incident that didn’t result in serious harm to anyone involved.
