DENVER (AP) - Jack Elway, the son of Denver Broncos executive John Elway, has been arrested on charges of assault and disturbing the peace.

According to jail records, 24-year-old John Albert Elway was booked into jail early Saturday morning for an incident that occurred near a college campus in downtown Denver. 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.

Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth says ''this is a personal family matter and the Broncos will not have any additional comment on it.''

Elway has been released on $550 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday. Jail records do not indicate if he has an attorney.
