Denver Broncos
running back Knowshon Moreno was arrested for drunk driving in Denver earlier this month ... and in an ironic twist of fate, cops say the license plate on his ride read "SAUCED."

According to the Denver PD, 24-year-old Moreno was driving his convertible Bentley on Feb. 1 when he was pulled over for doing 70 in a 45 ... in a construction zone.

Police say Moreno smelled like booze ... and when he performed poorly on a field sobriety test, they arrested him for DUI.

Cops say Moreno was "very respectful and polite."

The Broncos released a statement ... saying, "We take the incident involving Knowshon Moreno very seriously and are thoroughly reviewing this matter. Our organization will continue to gather information and closely monitor this issue while the legal process runs its course."

I thought I had seen it all with strange names. Knowshon kind of takes the cake. Then again, with all the strange names in Hollywood, maybe he fits right in. I'll refrain from using the word "ghetto" when it comes to his name.

Never commented on anything before but the hate is just ignorant. To comment on his name look it up it has meaning, also there is no ghetto in Middletown , NJ. This is a fine young man who made a mistake. No wife beating , dog killing , gun charges, drug charges ever! Get a life and move on to something people like this post like Nascar

Knowshon was respectful and polite to the police. He also hasnt been involved in any other incidents. The guy works his ass off to play for a team that drafted him - he has never quit, just gotten hurt. I would have to imagine we have all gotten behind the wheel at one point when we shouldnt have. For those of you to cast such hateful judgement shows the fundamental problem with this country. The guy made a mistake and will pay for it, but only those without sin should be casting any stones and judging his character. Why cant people in this world be kinder to one another, rather than continue to tear each other down?

When your a pro athlete and you get a DUI you should be suspended an extra 10 games for being a moron. If you only make the league min in any sport you can HIRE A DRIVER either for your own car, for a limo, a town car.
