Records: Elway's son dragged woman from car

DENVER (AP) Jack Elway, the son of Denver Broncos general manager John Elway, was arrested on assault charges after his girlfriend told police he pulled her out of a car by her hair.

Court documents obtained Monday show the woman told Denver police that 24-year-old John Albert Elway also pushed her to the ground when she tried to get back in the car, causing scrapes.

The documents say the incident happened early Saturday near a college campus in downtown Denver. Elway initially fled the scene.

Elway was released from jail on $550 bond and was scheduled to appear in court Thursday. He faces charges of assault and disturbing the peace.

Court records do not list an attorney. A Broncos spokesman says the case is a personal family matter.
