Denver Broncos Owner's Son John Bowlen Arrested for DUI

7/31/2017 6:08 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

10:11 AM PT -- He did it again -- cop say Bowlen tried to use the "Do you know who my father is?" tactic with police. 

Officials say John was driving over 100mph on the 101 Freeway -- driving like a maniac and scaring other drivers.  Multiple people called 911 for more than a hour trying to get cops involved. Ultimately, 5 troopers joined the search and helped apprehend him. 

Once the car was stopped, officers found a puppy in the vehicle -- and animal control was called to get the animal. 

Officials say Bowlen was "not cooperative."

More trouble for "the blood of the city" ... the son of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen was arrested for DUI in California on Sunday, TMZ Sports has learned. 

31-year-old John Bowlen was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol in the Paso Robles area around 2 PM -- and during the stop, officers determined he was under the influence of alcohol. 

He was hauled to a nearby station where he was booked on 2 counts of misdemeanor DUI. He's set to be released later Monday morning. 

This isn't John's first brush with the law -- the former Broncos marketing employee was arrested for domestic violence in 2015 in an incident in which he was also accused of hijacking the phone of his GF when she called 911.

During the call with the 911 operator, John claimed to be the "blood of the city" and friends with the mayor, and assured officials nothing was wrong.

He was ultimately found guilty of harassment and sentenced to 2 years probation. 

His father, Pat, still owns the Broncos -- but stepped down from an active role with the team after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's. His plan was to give control to one of of his children. Unclear which kid will get that job. 

Denver Broncos WR Pepper Sprayed In Strip Club Fight ... Video Released

7/16/2017 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Broncos receiver Cody Latimer was pepper sprayed by a bouncer during a fight outside an Ohio strip club ... and TMZ Sports has the insane footage.

We're told 24-year-old Latimer was trying to get into Diamonds Cabaret strip club near Dayton at the end of February with his uncle and a friend ... but got into a disagreement with the bouncer about the dress code.

We're told the group asked to speak to the manager and then moved outside. That's where the video starts.

In the footage, you see Latimer with his arms out between his group and the bouncer. Things escalate when Latimer slaps the bouncer, who then sprays C.L. with pepper spray. Latimer's uncle then lunges at the bouncer and is knocked out. 

We're told Latimer's group left immediately after the fight and cops were never called to the scene. Law enforcement sources tell us there's no pending criminal investigation.

We spoke to Latimer who tells us he was involved in the scuffle, but was simply trying to deescalate the situation. He says he's moved on and is focused on preparing for training camp. 

Peyton Manning Blows Fan's Mind ... Outside 'Kimmel'

7/12/2017 6:23 AM PDT

Peyton Manning turned a grown ass woman into a full Mary Katherine Gallagher

It all went down outside "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in L.A. -- when Peyton and his brother, Cooper Manning, were leaving the studio after the show and stopped to sign an autograph for a fan who was wearing Peyton's jersey. 

The woman absolutely LOST HER MIND -- pumping her fists in sheer excitement after getting #18's signature. 

Can't blame her ... signed Manning jerseys can sometimes sell for $1,000 a pop! 

Nice pull!

John Elway: Sapp's Donating His Brain? 'I'll Donate Mine, Too'

6/22/2017 6:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Denver Broncos legend John Elway was back in L.A. Wednesday night -- and kinda sorta pledged to donate his brain to science ... if he was actually being serious.

Elway was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood when we told him about fellow NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp, who announced Tuesday he'll be donating his brain for concussion research. 

Elway's reaction: "Okay, I'll donate mine too."

It would be huge for a high profile NFL star like Elway -- who also runs the Broncos -- to actually pledge his brain to a CTE study ... but when you watch the clip, it doesn't seem like he's too serious about it. 

Then again, maybe he is.

3/30/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Elway says he does NOT believe Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed by the NFL over his national anthem protests ... but says he's not really sure if the QB can still compete in the league. 

John and his smokin' hot wife Paige (a former Oakland Raiders cheerleader!) were in D.C. when we asked why he thought the ex-49ers quarterback is still unemployed. 

Elway is the GM and executive vice president of football operations for the Denver Broncos -- a team that could use a QB right now -- but when it comes to Kaep, Elway says he hasn't been studying up. 

When we asked if Kaep could still play, John replied -- "I don't know. I haven't been close enough to him to be able to tell."

Of course, Colin is currently unemployed and some believe he could end up in Denver ... if John decides he's worth a look.

9:02 AM PT -- Sources connected to the investigation tell us 2 Patriots jerseys and 1 Broncos helmet were recovered in Mexico.

The Broncos helmet is likely that of Von Miller, as Jay Glazer reported.

We're told no cleats have been recovered ... at least not yet.

Glazer said Miller's cleats also went M.I.A. after Super Bowl 50. Unclear if it's connected to this investigation.The man who jacked Tom Brady's Super Bowl jerseys may have ALSO stolen Von Miller's helmet and cleats from Super Bowl 50 ... so says Jay Glazer.

Glazer appeared on "Undisputed" on FS1 and said investigators used video footage to identify the suspect in the Super Bowl 51 caper. 

Glazer says investigators saw the suspect enter the locker room behind Bill Belichick and leave a short time later with something tucked under his arm. 

Glazer says the suspect had a legitimate media credential -- but may not be a real journalist. He may have been running a scam.

NFL's Emmanuel Sanders Blew A FORTUNE On Sidechicks ... Furious Wife Claims

2/20/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The estranged wife of Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has declared WAR on the NFL star -- claiming he lied, cheated and spent THOUSANDS on chicks he was banging on the side. 

It's all in ANGRY court docs filed by Gabriella Sanders -- who blasts the father of her 2 children with a metaphorical bazooka right from the get go. 

"When he's not playing football on the field, he 'plays the field' with numerous women whom he is or has committed adultery."

Gabby lays out multiple marital "atrocities" allegedly committed by her husband -- and claims he spent "thousands upon thousands of dollars on girlfriends and wasting the community estate, even purchasing a vehicle for one of his illicit affairs."

The allegations are strikingly similar to those of Shelly Sterling -- who claimed her husband Donald Sterling had no right to give $2.6 mil in gifts to V. Stiviano. She sued V and won. V was ordered to reimburse the Sterling estate.

Gabby filed for divorce from Sanders back in October and in the new court docs filed in Texas she says there is ZERO chance of a reconciliation. 

Emmanuel signed a $33 mil extension with the Broncos back in Sept. -- with $27 mil fully guaranteed.

But there's more ...

Gabby also claims Emmanuel lied to the Broncos -- claiming he told the team he needed to miss a practice in Nov. so he could be in Houston for the birth of their child ... which was a a lie so he could go out partying. 

We reached out to Emmanuel's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.
