Dumervil's assault case set for April jury trial

Denver Broncos star pass-rusher Elvis Dumervil will be tried April 5 on charges he allegedly assaulted a parking lot attendant at Invesco Field in October.

Judge Johnny Barajas set a trial in Denver County Court after Dumervil pleaded not guilty to charges of assault and disturbing the peace.

Dumervil led the league in sacks in 2009 but missed all of last season after tearing a chest muscle in training camp.

He has said he got into a minor altercation before the Broncos played the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 24 when the attendant didn't let him use the players' entrance because he wasn't carrying his proper credential.
