Early on Monday, Denver prosecutors have decided to drop charges against Denver Bronco Safety T.J. Ward. The decision comes as no surprise considering Ward’s clean record. In exchange for the dropped charges, Ward will be required to serve 4 hours of community service.
On May 10th, Ward was charged with misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace charges for allegedly throwing a glass mug at a female bartender at PT’s Showclub. Ward pleaded not guilty to both charges. Melissa Drazen-Smith, of the Denver city attorney’s office, says Ward’s service must be completed by Oct. 31 for the charges to be dismissed. The program is a common sentence for those with no criminal history.
This news comes as the Broncos prepare for their preseason opener against the Seahawks. The game will mark Ward’s first as a Bronco.
