Broncos RB Moreno facing DUI charge

Denver prosecutors say Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has

been charged with drunken driving and careless driving after

getting pulled over in south Denver.

Denver district attorney’s spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough said

Tuesday that Moreno is also charged with failure to have proof of

insurance and is due back in court March 2 after police issued a

summons.

Denver police Lt. Matthew Murray says Moreno was pulled over on

Feb. 1 after allegedly driving 70 mph in an interstate construction

zone where the speed limit was 45 mph.

The Broncos issued a written statement saying they take the

incident very seriously and will monitor the case while the legal

process runs its course.
