Sam Brandon Turns Self In (Warrant Issued)
Didn't see this posted. If so, oh well.
DENVER -- Denver Broncos safety Sam Brandon turned himself in to Douglas County court officials Wednesday after a warrant was issued for his arrest, prosecutors said.
Brandon, 27, faces a charge of violating a restraining order and violation of his bond conditions, both misdemeanors, district attorney spokeswoman Kathleen Walsh said.
Despite prosecutor objections, a judge released Brandon on a personal recognizance bond. He was due in court Nov. 17 for a pretrial conference on the new charges and a domestic violence case from July 2005.
Brandon was fingerprinted and photographed at the jail. Walsh did not release additional details.
Neither Broncos officials nor Brandon immediately returned a phone message left at the team's office.
Team spokesman Paul Kirk declined comment.
A fourth-round pick by Denver in 2002, Brandon faces a charge of third-degree assault and a charge of criminal mischief, both misdemeanors, stemming from his arrest July 4, 2005, officials have said. Details of his arrest were not immediately available.
